Hero Overview

It's not about fun. The flames are a part of us. We have to burn in order to live.
~ Lio Fotia

Lio Fotia is the deuteragonist of the 2019 Studio Trigger film Promare. He is the leader of the Mad Burnish, alongside Gueira and Meis.

He is voiced by Taichi Saotome in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Johnny Yong Bosch in the English version of the anime.


Lio has light skin and short light green hair. He has a petite frame and wears a black leather suit covered in buckles and straps, flared sleeves, and a single white belt across his waist. The suit has several white cloth embellishments, specifically at his wrists and neck, the latter of which is reminiscent of a jabot collar.


At first glance, Lio seems to be cold and ruthless and speaks in a cordial and mostly polite manner. As the movie progresses however, he is revealed to be very emotional, with his emotions at several points overruling his logical thinking, leading him to take drastic actions. He feels deeply responsible for his fellow Burnish and takes his mantle as their leader very seriously. However, he holds himself and his fellows to a high standard, insisting that while they do what they can to fight for the rights of their people, they do so while ensuring that there are few casualties.

After their personal issues are resolved and they find themselves on the same side, Lio is very determined to help Galo in the fight against Kray. He is shown to be resilient and brave, and more methodical in his thinking than Galo, which eventually helps them at the end of the film.

Powers and Abilities

  • Pyrokinesis: Just like the rest of the Burnish, Lio is able to manipulate fire in any shape or form.
    • Pyrokinetic Constructs: Lio is able to use his pyrokinesis to form solid objects made out of fire, such as a motorcycle, a throne, and several weapons.
  • Expert Tactician: Being the leader of the Mad Burnish, Lio is capable of executing various strategies; an example is when he formulates an escape plan to break out of jail.


  • According to Shigeto Koyama, Lio's appearance was inspired by the works of the likes of Moto Hagio.
