Cebin Mendel (ケビン メンデル, Kebin Menderu) is a fictional character in the manga and anime series of Shaman King. He is a member of the X-Laws and Team "X-III", who seeks revenge against Asakura Hao. Like many of the X-Laws, he was once part of a military group.
Cebin Mendel is commonly seen wearing a black smiling mask and, a white and navy blue Tyrolean hat, and like most of the other members of the X-Laws he is also constantly seen wearing his X-laws uniform. However unlike the other members uniforms that have pure white sleeves, he instead wears the top part of the uniform as a vest, and has long dark blue sleeves with vertical black stripes and a white machete. He also wears a sunflower like silver shoulder amour. The combination of these clothes make him appear similar to that of a Jester.
He is of average height and is quite thin built, however according to Asakura Hao, he is quite "skinny". He uses a pair of jet black mechanical gloves with guns attached to where the fingertips used to be, so they can be used as projectile weapons which act as Cebin's medium for Remiel.
Because of the smile design of the mask he is commonly mistaken for a being a man that is constantly happy, however, it is revealed that he was terribly burned and disfigured by Asakura Hao in the past, and that the main reason why he wears the mask, the Tyrolean hat and the gloves, is to hide the fact that there is not so much skin left on his body left.
Because of his icon mask it is difficult to see what mood he is in, and what emotions he has. However he seems to remain calm and collected, and is like the other X-Laws members a heavy believer in their justice and their the ideals of Jeanne. Unlike Marco Lasso, he can still see the shades of gray in the world and does, like his teammates, and see Lyserg`s kindness as a great addition for the team.
However when he came to face to face with Asakura Hao in the fourth fight of the Shaman Tournament, he finally showed his true colors. When Meene was quickly killed he acted as if nothing had happened, and revealed his large personal grudge against Asakura Hao for disfiguring him ten years ago. It is then revealed that he does not actually care about anyone anymore and is only in the Shaman Fights for his own personal revenge.
Abilities and PowersEdit

His guardian ghost is that of the Archangel Remiel, that, according to himself, is the archangel in charge of the souls being reincarnated. It was first seen when the X-Laws revealed themselves and were then attacked by "Big Guy" Bill Burton.
Born on September 18, 1971, Cebin comes from Salzburg, Austria where he eventually joined a military group, becoming a sniper in the unit known as the EKO Cobra Unit, helping the Austrian Federal Police. Ten years prior to the current storyline he met with Asakura Hao, mistaking him and his followers as a terrorist organization and so decided to attack. Hao ended up killing everyone except for Cebin, but he lost both his arms and burned the majority of his face and body. He was between life and death when Marco Lasso and Iron Maiden Jeanne found him and saved him. This incident with Hao awakened his shamanic powers, so he decided to join the X-Laws to take revenge.
Travel through AmericaEdit
He and the X-Laws were dropped somewhere in American. Not much is known about what he and his teammates did but he later showed up at the fight between Ryu and Boris. The X-Laws killed Boris and went straight to the Patch village. Cebin like all others gained a power increase from the Great Spirit.
Shaman Fights Second RoundEdit
The X-laws recruited Lyserg and waited the rest of the three months. He teamed up with Chris Venstar, and Meene Montgomery to form the X-III team. They were the first to face Asakura Hao and his team. Although all three of them attack Hao at the same, Hao targeted them one by one and Meene was the first to go, by having her spirit sliced in two and then being impaled herself by one of the Spirit of Fire's fingers.
Cebin stepped up and revealed himself, his reason for entering, and his face. He fought with everything he had but was killed by the Spirit of Fire, who crushed not only his Archangel, but also he himself, burning to cinders and thus killing him.
Invading the PlantsEdit
In the anime, he lives a lot longer until the end of the series where he dies being crushed by his own O.S. while all the X-Laws were fighting against Hao, while in manga, he is killed by Hao and Spirit of Fire ate his soul.
In anime he doesn't have hair (or his hair is very short, sometimes, though this may be a wig). In the manga, has dark, spiked hair hidden under this hat. Cebin Mendel does also appeared in casual clothes several times, without the hat. His disfigured face is never shown in the anime.
