The Star Clan (星の一族, Hoshi no Ichizoku) was an infamous clan of assassins who would do anything for money.[1] They're the off-shoot of the Hoshi family's school.[2] 13 years prior to the start of the series, they were eliminated by DWMA due to using their power outside the rules.[3][4]

The Star Clan originated from the members of the Hoshi family at some point. Thirteen years ago, they gained their infamy for their ruthlessness and under taking any assassination mission for money. They became renown for their attacks and killings in various parts of Japan such as Needle Village. Having violated the rules established by the DWMA in the process, the organization eliminated the majority of the clan, save for the newly born Black☆Star.[5][6][7]


Naming Tradition

As witnessed with both "Black☆Star" and "White☆Star", members within the Star Clan seem to follow some sort of unique naming format in which they give themselves a name of a color, followed by the stylization of a star (☆) in the middle, followed by the word "Star" like that of a surname.

Main article: Light The Star Clan is one of the various clans that sport these type of eyes, in which their pupils are in the shape of stars. As observed by both Black☆Star and White☆Star, both eyes contain stars and are inside the pupil itself. The eyes are also controlled, unlike that of either the Hoshi Family and the Hoshino Family, and can manifest whenever a clan member has malicious thought and/or serious intentions.[citation needed]

  • Due to the addition of the concept of the Kishin Egg, the Star Clan in the Soul Eater anime also hunted for human souls.[8] In the manga, they only killed for money.
  • Along with Light Eyes, the Star Clan also sport a unique star tattoo on their body, which seems to be a trait they're either somehow born with and/or a tattoo permanently done onto the skin shortly after birth.[5]
  • Atsushi Ōkubo later created the character Rekka Hoshimiya, for his subsequent manga series Fire Brigade of Flames. Like members of the Hoshi Family, the Hoshino Family, and the Star Clan, Rekka has a surname, Hoshimiya (星宮; "star shine"), that alludes to stars, and has star shapes in his eyes. Also like Black☆Star and Akane Hoshi, Rekka prefers hand-to-hand combat and, initially, has an outgoing personality.
