Takamichi Hakataminami (博多南 宝路 Hakataminami Takamichi), now known as Takamichi Crystalia (クリスタリア宝路 Kurisutaria Takamichi) is Kiramai Silver (キラメイシルバー Kiramei Shirubā), the Sixth Ranger and the Silver Ranger of the Kiramagers. He is 47 years old, making him the oldest Kiramager. However, due to a Kiramai Stone implanted in his body, he looks 17. He is also the biological older brother of Muryou Hakataminami, the adopted older brother of Princess Mabushina, the adopted son of King Oradin and Queen Mabayuine, and the adopted nephew of Galza.
When he was briefly possessed by Jamental power from Galza, he turned into Dark Kiramai Silver (ダークキラマイシルバー Dāku Kiramei Shirubā) an evil version of Kiramai Silver.
Takamichi Crystalia was born two years earlier than his brother Muryou Hakataminami. 30 years ago, at the age of 17 when he was still a high schooler, he was introduced to King Oradin, a friend of his father. During a White Valentine’s Day, Takamichi used to like marshmallows from his former crush named Akiho, but he did not mean to break her heart because of being misunderstood of hating marshmallow she made for him when he found out she overheard it. In truth, he was too shy to gratefully confess her gratitude to him, not disliking of marshmallows.
During an expedition with the king, Takamichi was in the middle of digging an unearthed treasure in a forest. Unfortunately, the treasure was revealed to be a Monstone. The Monstone went into Takamichi, endangering his life. Oradin brought Takamichi to Crystalia and implanted a Kiramai Stone into his body to regulate the effect of the Monstone.
Afterward, Takamichi was adopted as the prince of the Crystalian Kingdom and met the kingdom’s sole heir, Princess Mabushina, at cost of unable to have a chance to apologize to Akiho. Also, during his time in Crystalia, he came into contact with Galza, who manipulated him into believing that he was better at working solely than teamwork. Later, after the Queen's death, Takamichi tried to prevent the same fate from falling down upon his sister, so he acted like he had a change of heart and planned to return to Earth for treasure hunting, taking both the Shiny Kiramai Changer and Shiny Breaker along with him, disregarding Mabushina's objection. His main target was actually the Kanaema Stones, whose power can remove the Yodonheim curse that killed their mother.
Takamichi first appears where he discovers Sayo Oharu laying against a rock with a sprained ankle after she experienced a string of bad luck attending to an emergency regarding stranded hikers. He uses what he calls "Wonder Medicine" to heal her ankle, which she initially disbelieved would work thanks to her medical background.
Later, he introduces himself as Takamichi Crystalia to Meteorite Jamen in front of the Kiramagers, surprising them. After the defeat of Meteorite Jamen and gaining their admiration, Mabushina approaches Takamichi and slaps him, blaming him for what had happened to their home and their father because of his treasure hunting habits.
After being brought to CARAT, he reunites with his long-lost younger brother Muryou and eventually learned of Galza’s betrayal.
Takamichi is quick, positive, and very strong. He also has a 6th sense and doesn't really think when he goes into action. Takamichi uses English words in his speech, especially the word "wonder", in "Wonder Cute" and "Wonder Thank You".
As evaluated by Juru Atsuta, Takamichi is a kind and caring person deep down, who loves helping people, yet appears to pretend to act cold-hearted and selfish. He is shown to have happily greeted Mabushina before she berated him for his absence. Takamichi also has a habit of suddenly changing moods (such as going from disappointed/serious to happy and animated) when promised something or just in general. Takamichi also heavily followed Galza's advice about going solo, meaning he rarely accepted assistance, though after he lost the Shiny Kiramai Changer, he realized that Galza was trying to sabotage him, something that was hidden by his own ego. Most of this mood shift and loner personality stems from him knowing a dark secret that involves the potential loss of his sister. Rather than letting her get involved, he started to act uncaring instead of letting her know the truth.
When Muryou reveals Takamichi to be a Showa Era individual, Takamichi leaves the CARAT base by doing what Muryou says was a common Showa sign-off.
He is also implied to have a crush on, or at least some sort of feelings for Sayo Oharu multiple times, including two seconds into his first appearance, when he calls Sayo "Wonder Cute".

Using the Shiny Kiramai Changer, Takamichi can access his Kiramaiger Form by pressing on the middle button that symbolizes his Kiramaiger Helmet and then spins the disc to transform into his Kiramaiger Form allowing him to become Kiramai Silver. In this form he has access to his Shiny Breaker and his personal mecha that he can use in battle against Yodonheim and their Jamenshi. In one of the previous episodes of Kiramaiger, Kiramai Silver also obtained the Mashin Express and used it in battle. Unlike his fellow teammates, Kiramai Silver's suit design differs from the Kiramaigers

Kiramai Silver can also change into a Silver Kiramai Stone. Known as the Shining Kiramai Stone, in this form, he can combine with Drijan into GigantDriller, which essentially gives his mind a bigger body to control.
