This page lists the minor characters introduced in Spindlerun: The Tale of Yajirobe. The characters are listed in order of introduction:

Butcher[]

In chapter 1, Yajirobe visited his favorite butcher shop and tried to get some free meat, as he had not enough money to buy any. The butcher was unwilling to give him anything. He also told Yajirobe that the Red Ribbon Army was coming to town soon, so he would be closing up shop until they left, as they were notorious for looting and stealing from stores wherever they went. Then, he kicked the begging boy out of his shop.

When Yajirobe returned to the butcher's shop in chapter 6, he learned that the butcher had been killed by the Red Ribbon Army several months prior.

Orange Star City citizens[]

After being kicked out of the butcher shop in chapter 1, Yajirobe noticed that many people were out in the streets of Orange Star City, preparing to leave before the Red Ribbon Army arrived. When Yajirobe and the other samurai recruits returned to Orange Star City, they found it to be a ghost town.

In chapter 2, when Yajirobe, Harotu, Brian, and Nameless Child 2 went to Orange Star City at two in the morning and stole a car, they were surprised to see how many people were out and about so late at night. Yajirobe almost hit several pedestrians as he drove.

After General Blue shot Nameless Child 2 in, Yajirobe and Harotu ran into a department store to hide. They found many other pedestrians hiding in there too. The adults, seeing the bloody children, came up to them and offered them aid. Several of them watched General Blue fight Launch outside of a restaurant, with Launch herself getting lost in the crowd after she sneezed and reverted to her blue hair form.

In chapter 4, several pedestrians were seen hiding inside the grocery store with Harotu and Yajirobe. When Harotu ventured outside, he saw many dead bodies in the streets. A waitress served Yajirobe and Harotu huge sums of food later on in a restaurant.

In chapter 7, many Orange Star City citizens watched the street fight between Mr. Satan and The Blue Meanie. One man even refereed it. Another man sold a Ƶ3 mask to Yajirobe.

Red Ribbon Army[]

In chapter 1, the butcher told Yajirobe that the Red Ribbon Army was coming to town soon, so he would be closing up shop until they left, as they were notorious for looting and stealing from stores wherever they went. After the boy returned outside, he noticed that many people were out in the streets of Orange Star City, preparing to leave before the Red Ribbon Army arrived. Yajirobe thought to himself that not even King Furry's guards could stand up to the Red Ribbon Army. Their impending arrival greatly frightened him.

In chapter 2, General Blue and his men remained waiting in the town square hoping to get a call from their client. Blue noted that he had ordered his men to burn down three blocks of houses in retaliation for what the Iboinoshishi School recruits had done to him the previous day. These soldiers later accompanied General Blue to Igaron mountain where they executed the monks of the Solipsist Colony as their client had requested.

Later, General Blue noted that his legion had been hired by a third party for a mercenary job, and due to the money they were willing to pay, Commander Red had given the green light. After changing into a new set of clothes, Blue marched his soldiers into Orange Star City, hoping for a warm reception from its citizens. They were ambushed by Yajirobe and the other samurai recruits who threw some jabillo fruit at them as a distraction in order to steal General Blue's hat.

After that insolent display, General Blue shot at them with his pistol, causing them to flee into a nearby building. Blue then ordered Captain Dark to lead the heavy weapons division up to building and destroy it. All of Blue's soldiers were distracted by the destruction of that building, which allowed Yajirobe to run up to their ranks and snatch General Blue's hat, which had fallen off after one of the jabillo fruits had exploded nearby him. After General Blue's eyebrows were singed off by Harotu, the general did not let any of his soldiers get near him for several hours, which delayed the setting up of their base of operations for a day. Many of his soldiers attested to the fact that Blue spent the whole night crying about the damage to his face.

In chapter 3, after General Blue's karaoke machine malfunctioned (as Yajirobe had driven a stolen hovercar into it), several of his soldiers consoled him. Later, after Blue shot Nameless Child 2, two of his guards went with him as he chased down Brian. After Blue accidentally shot Hasky in the shoulder (she had been trying to kill Brian herself), the three ran past her as she collapsed in the street. However, as soon as they passed her, she shot both of Blue's guards, killing them and just barely missing him.

In chapter 4, Daniel regretted the fact that he hadn't been able to pay General Blue and his men to kill Naigo. They had to leave Orange Star City after killing the solipsist monks to begin their hunt for the Dragon Balls. Under General Blue's orders, the Blue Legion destroyed much of Orange Star City on their way out due to their interactions with Launch and the Iboinoshishi School recruits. When Harotu found Brian, he noted that two Red Ribbon Army soldiers were dead nearby him (they had been killed by Launch the previous night).

In chapter 6, when Makare visited Daniel's house in Cardan, he accused Daniel of paying the Red Ribbon Army to kill the solipsist monks, as Daniel was the only one rich enough to do so who knew about those monks. When Yajirobe returned to the butcher's shop, he learned that the butcher had been killed by the Red Ribbon Army several months prior.

King Furry's guards[]

In chapter 1, Yajirobe thought to himself that not even King Furry's guards could stand up to the Red Ribbon Army.

Samurai recruits[]

When Yajirobe reached the Iboinoshishi School, there were many other recruits there, all boys and girls around his age. Soon after, a samurai named Kumo came out to greet them. Her attendants followed, asking everyone their names. Kumo led the children into another room deeper inside the compound and ordered them to fall into a pose and hold it until she returned. She warned that anyone who moved from the pose, or grew too weak to maintain it, would be asked to leave the school and never return.

Almost all of the recruits failed this test, leaving only Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, Anders, and nine others. After fifteen minutes had passed, Kumo returned, telling the remaining thirteen children that they had completed their first test. She told them that it was now time to commence the second test. They would need to steal the hat of General Blue when he and his legion of Red Ribbon Army soldiers entered Orange Star City later that day. Seven of the recruits refused to do so, for they thought they would be killed. Only Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, Anders, and two others attempted the second test.

Kumo[]

Soon after Yajirobe reached the Iboinoshishi School, a samurai named Kumo came out to greet him and the other recruits. Her attendants followed, asking everyone their names. Then, she led the children into another room deeper inside the compound and ordered them to fall into a pose and hold it until she returned. She warned that anyone who moved from the pose, or grew too weak to maintain it, would be asked to leave the school and never return.

About fifteen minutes later, Kumo returned, telling the remaining thirteen children that they had completed their first test. She told them that it was now time to commence the second test. They would need to steal the hat of General Blue when he and his legion of Red Ribbon Army soldiers entered Orange Star City later that day. Seven of the recruits refused to do so, for they thought they would be killed. She allowed them to leave the school.

Later, the six remaining recruits returned to the Iboinoshishi school and gave Kumo the hat. She did not congratulate them, but ordered her servants to show the boys to their dormitory so they could sleep. Kumo returned to the courtyard where the first test had taken place to inform Elijah, who had been maintaining his pose there the entire time, that the boys had retrieved that hat of General Blue, which completed their second test.

She told him that it had been Yajirobe who had personally recovered the item. Then, she and Elijah talked about how the previous master of the Iboinoshishi School had let Elijah into the school even though he had been a country boy - the first to be allowed into the school. He ordered her to give him the names and pictures of each of the six recruits so that he could study them. Kumo left immediately to fetch those items. She left the list of names and pictures in an envelope that she had taped to the Daimyo's door.

In chapter 4, Kumo tended to Elijah's gunshot wound. She informed him that the recruits had gone to the city the night before. He had confidence in them returning in ten minute's time, when that day's training was to start. Kumo did not agree. He admitted to her that he needed to accelerate their training, as Makare would likely attack them soon. She and one of the attendants carried the daimyo outside so he could begin his daily meditation. Upon doing so, the three of them noticed that the far-off Orange Star City was burning, with smoke rising high in the air, and that worried Elijah greatly.

Later on, Makare told Yajirobe, Brian, and Harotu that only Elijah and Kumo were capable of wielding a sword and that all other recruits had dropped out, retired, or been removed from the school, which Makare thought was far too strict.

At the start of chapter 5, Makare and Naigo prepared to assault the Iboinoshishi School. Naigo believed that having roughly two hundred thirty samurai would be enough to swarm the place, but Makare believed they would need at least seven hundred to overwhelm Elijah, Kumo, the students, and the attendants.

Later, when Elijah began his sparring training with his students, he and Kumo were both out on the training grounds waiting for them, dressed up in their battle armor. The samurai dueled for the students to show them what a real fight looked like. The fight was relatively short, with Elijah winning easily. Afterwards, Yajirobe correctly guessed that Elijah's strategy had been to allow Kumo to wear herself out before going in for the killing blow.

Then, Elijah and Yajirobe dueled while Kumo took on Harotu and Brian at the same time. Brian and Harotu only sparred with Kumo briefly before she ordered them to fight each other. The group continued their intense training session for four more weeks until on one fateful, rainy day, a servant rang the bell at the front gate. Elijah, Kumo, and the students ran to see what was the matter. They beheld a black horse and a rider, who was one of the servants. He was headless. This signaled Makare's attack. After Elijah quickly taught the students the Iaigiri attack, he and Kumo retreated to the center of the school.

When Yajirobe and Brian returned to the Iboinoshishi School after embarking upon their journey to Daniel's house, they noticed that the samurai had already attacked. Fires were burning, and bodies were lying about. They ran inside to find Kumo and some attendants fighting off the samurai. She ordered one of them to go find Elijah, for he had disappeared, and the other to take her place as she patched up a wound. Yajirobe agreed to do that, while Brian went looking for the daimyo. While Kumo was getting treatment for her wound, Makare appeared and killed her guards. He called her his favorite bitch at the academy, which prompted her to lunge at him. Just then, Naigo fired an energy blast at Kumo, which blew her away, killing her.

Iboinoshishi attendants[]

These attendants aided Kumo in the entrance exam for the Iboinoshishi School. They took all of the recruits names. Later, the six remaining recruits returned to the Iboinoshishi school and gave Kumo General Blue's hat, which completed their second test. She did not congratulate them, but ordered her servants to show the boys to their dormitory so they could sleep.

In chapter 2, when Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, Anders, Nameless Child 1, and Nameless Child 2 woke up, the attendants took them to the dining hall and served them breakfast. After Elijah dueled with Anders, the attendants rushed out to the training grounds and, in panic, took the boy away on a stretcher. Later, six attendants accompanied Elijah and the recruits to the southern bridge in Orange Star City. They removed some rubble from the bridge before the group used it to train on. Once they were finished, they returned back to the Iboinoshishi School.

While Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, and Nameless Child 2 trained in chapter 3, the attendants watched them but did not intervene or instruct them in any way.

In chapter 4, a single attendant helped Kumo carry Elijah out of his room to meditate in the sun. Upon doing so, the three of them noticed that the far-off Orange Star City was burning, with smoke rising high in the air, and that worried Elijah greatly.

At the start of chapter 5, Makare and Naigo prepared to assault the Iboinoshishi School. Naigo believed that having roughly two hundred thirty samurai would be enough to swarm the place, but Makare believed they would need at least seven hundred to overwhelm Elijah, Kumo, the students, and the attendants.

On the morning of the students' first sparring session, the attendants brought Yajirobe, Brian, and Harotu out to the training grounds where Elijah and Kumo were suited up in their armor. The group continued their intense training session for four more weeks until on one fateful, rainy day, a servant rang the bell at the front gate. Elijah, Kumo, and the students ran to see what was the matter. They beheld a black horse and a rider, who was one of the servants. He was headless. This signaled Makare's attack. Soon after, an attendant took Brian and Yajirobe to a porter-gate in the back of the school, which allowed them to run off to Daniel's house without being spotted by Makare's men.

When Yajirobe and Brian returned to the Iboinoshishi School after embarking upon their journey to Daniel's house, they noticed that the samurai had already attacked. Fires were burning, and bodies were lying about, both of the samurai and of the attendants. They noticed Harotu's backpack by the porter-gate along with the bodies of several attendants. They ran inside to find Kumo and some attendants fighting off the samurai. She ordered one of them to go find Elijah, for he had disappeared, and the other to take her place as she patched up a wound. Yajirobe agreed to do that, while Brian went looking for the daimyo.

Naigo soon found Yajirobe fighting off some of the samurai with a host of Iboinoshishi attendants at his side. Naigo threw an energy ball at them, killing all but Yajirobe, who had noticed it approaching and had dived out of the way at the last second. Almost all of the Iboinoshishi attendants were killed during the battle against Makare's Band.

In chapter 6, after defeating Makare and his samurai, Yajirobe returned to the Iboinoshishi School and noticed all the bodies of the samurai and attendants. He later asked Elijah if his samurai classes would continue, but the daimyo said they would not, as his school had been nearly destroyed and all of his servants had been killed.

Anders[]

Anders was one of the children who came to the Iboinoshishi School hoping to train to become a samurai. He, along with the rest of the recruits, attempted to complete the first test, which was maintaining a pose for several minutes without moving (until Kumo, their instructor, returned). After fifteen minutes had passed, Kumo returned, telling the remaining thirteen children that they had completed their first test. She told them that it was now time to commence the second test. They would need to steal the hat of General Blue when he and his legion of Red Ribbon Army soldiers entered Orange Star City later that day. Seven of the recruits refused to do so, for they thought they would be killed, but Anders agreed to attempt the second test.

The group of recruits soon returned to Orange Star City, finding it to be a ghost town. They wandered about, searching for the army. Eventually they heard the sound of marching soldiers approaching. Brian pointed out a house nearby that was owned by Mr. Parroda, who had several jabillo trees. He explained to the others that the jabillo fruit would explode if thrown at somebody and thought they should use that against General Blue in order to knock off his hat. The group quickly agreed to this strategy, and so Brian, Anders, and the two nameless children ran over to Mr. Parroda's house, jumped the fence, and grabbed some jabillo fruit.

They waited for the soldiers to come marching down the street, getting into position a few houses away, before throwing their jabillos. The fruit exploded, but did little damage to the soldiers, angering them more than anything else. General Blue shot at the four of them with his pistol, causing them to flee into a nearby building. Blue then ordered Captain Dark to lead the heavy weapons division up to building and destroy it. While the building was being leveled by the soldiers, Anders and the two nameless children fled out of a back door, gaining enough distance before the house exploded to save themselves. The six boys regrouped several blocks away, and Yajirobe proudly presented Blue's hat to them.

They returned to the Iboinoshishi school soon after and gave Kumo the hat. She did not congratulate them, but ordered her servants to show the boys to their dormitory so they could sleep. Later on, the Daimyo Elijah went to the dormitory to look upon the sleeping recruits with his own eyes. They each had a bunk bed, and all of them sans Brian were sleeping on their bottom bunk.

In chapter 2, Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, Anders, Nameless Child 1, and Nameless Child 2 began their training at the Iboinoshishi School. When they woke up, the attendants took them to the dining hall and served them breakfast. As they ate, the group conversed about their harrowing mission the previous day. Harotu proudly recounted how he had saved Brian from General Blue. Brian gave Yajirobe credit for running so fast to get his hat.

Not long after, Elijah entered the dining hall and everyone went quiet. The daimyo introduced himself and after Brian told him that they were expecting the man to train them, he told them to follow him outside for their first session. Once outside, Elijah ordered them to show him how skilled they were in the art of sword fighting already. He gave them wooden sticks that had been carved in the likeness of katanas. He told them he could not trust them with real swords yet, which was disappointing to the recruits.

Anders was paired with Yajirobe. Their fight did not last long, as Anders disarmed Yajirobe with little effort and bragged that he was the greatest of the recruits. Elijah told them to stop after that, calling forward the three best duelers in his opinion - Brian, Harotu, and Nameless Child 1. This outraged Anders, for Brian had lost. He challenged the daimyo to a duel to show off how good his sword fighting skills were. Elijah accepted, telling them that he was always obligated to duel when challenged, no matter the competition. Anders then charged down Elijah with his bokken, but the daimyo jumped over him and then kicked him in the chest with a single toe. The boy dropped to the ground, not even able to scream, and appeared to have been severely wounded. He did not make another sound, but blood flowed from his mouth. At that moment, Elijah's attendants appeared and, in panic, took the boy away on a stretcher. Nobody at the Iboinoshishi School ever saw Anders again.

In chapter 4, as he descended Igaron mountain, Daniel looked towards the distant Orange Star City. He thought about how some kids had recently broken into his yard and stolen some of his jabillo fruit, which annoyed him greatly.

In chapter 5, when Elijah and Yajirobe sparred together, Yajirobe thought back to the last person he had seen duel with the daimyo - the foolish boy, Anders.

In chapter 7, Yajirobe returned to the Iboinoshishi School to find it overgrown with weeds. Nobody had been there in a long time. He thought about how he had been the only one to graduate - Anders (Yajirobe was mistaken about Anders, as Anders did not actually die), Nameless Child 1, Nameless Child 2, and Brian had died, and Harotu had quit.

Nameless Child 1[]

Nameless Child 1 was one of the children who came to the Iboinoshishi School hoping to train to become a samurai. He, along with the rest of the recruits, attempted to complete the first test, which was maintaining a pose for several minutes without moving (until Kumo, their instructor, returned). After fifteen minutes had passed, Kumo returned, telling the remaining thirteen children that they had completed their first test. She told them that it was now time to commence the second test. They would need to steal the hat of General Blue when he and his legion of Red Ribbon Army soldiers entered Orange Star City later that day. Seven of the recruits refused to do so, for they thought they would be killed, but Nameless Child 1 agreed to attempt the second test.

The group of recruits soon returned to Orange Star City, finding it to be a ghost town. They wandered about, searching for the army. Eventually they heard the sound of marching soldiers approaching. Brian pointed out a house nearby that was owned by Mr. Parroda, who had several jabillo trees. He explained to the others that the jabillo fruit would explode if thrown at somebody and thought they should use that against General Blue in order to knock off his hat. The group quickly agreed to this strategy, and so Brian, Anders, and the two nameless children ran over to Mr. Parroda's house, jumped the fence, and grabbed some jabillo fruit.

They waited for the soldiers to come marching down the street, getting into position a few houses away, before throwing their jabillos. The fruit exploded, but did little damage to the soldiers, angering them more than anything else. General Blue shot at the four of them with his pistol, causing them to flee into a nearby building. Blue then ordered Captain Dark to lead the heavy weapons division up to building and destroy it. While the building was being leveled by the soldiers, Anders and the two nameless children fled out of a back door, gaining enough distance before the house exploded to save themselves. The six boys regrouped several blocks away, and Yajirobe proudly presented Blue's hat to them.

They returned to the Iboinoshishi school soon after and gave Kumo the hat. She did not congratulate them, but ordered her servants to show the boys to their dormitory so they could sleep. Later on, the Daimyo Elijah went to the dormitory to look upon the sleeping recruits with his own eyes. They each had a bunk bed, and all of them sans Brian were sleeping on their bottom bunk.

In chapter 2, Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, Anders, Nameless Child 1, and Nameless Child 2 began their training at the Iboinoshishi School. When they woke up, the attendants took them to the dining hall and served them breakfast. As they ate, the group conversed about their harrowing mission the previous day. Harotu proudly recounted how he had saved Brian from General Blue. Brian gave Yajirobe credit for running so fast to get his hat.

Not long after, Elijah entered the dining hall and everyone went quiet. The daimyo introduced himself and after Brian told him that they were expecting the man to train them, he told them to follow him outside for their first session. Once outside, Elijah ordered them to show him how skilled they were in the art of sword fighting already. He gave them wooden sticks that had been carved in the likeness of katanas. He told them he could not trust them with real swords yet, which was disappointing to the recruits.

Nameless Child 1 was paired with Nameless Child 2. Nameless Child 1 beat Nameless Child 2 in their fight. Elijah told them to stop after that, calling forward the three best duelers in his opinion - Brian, Harotu, and Nameless Child 1. This outraged Anders, for Brian had lost. He challenged the daimyo to a duel to show off how good his sword fighting skills were. Elijah accepted, telling them that he was always obligated to duel when challenged, no matter the competition. Anders then charged down Elijah with his bokken, but the daimyo jumped over him and then kicked him in the chest with a single toe. The boy dropped to the ground, not even able to scream, and appeared to have been severely wounded. He did not make another sound, but blood flowed from his mouth. At that moment, Elijah's attendants appeared and, in panic, took the boy away on a stretcher. Nobody at the Iboinoshishi School ever saw Anders again.

Elijah then told the remaining five recruits that he would not tolerate arrogance from them. He told them that none of them were exceptional yet, or more skilled than he had expected. His training would make them exceptional, but they should not have any false beliefs about their abilities so early into their training. Then, he walked off, their training for that morning having been completed.

The next night, Elijah took his recruits to the crumbling southern bridge in Orange Star City to train. He ordered six attendants to clear some rubble from it before they began. Once his attendants had done so, he dismissed them. Then, he told the children that their task was simple: reach the other end of the bridge without dying. The bridge, with so many holes in it, the gusting winds, and the roads crumbling, was a treacherous obstacle course to navigate. Brian said that he thought they would fall. Harotu told him that it wasn't as bad as it looked, because Elijah would never let them die. The daimyo gave no reply to that. Brian was incredulous, reminding Harotu of the dangerous mission to get General Blue's hat.

Then, having heard enough of their talk, Elijah began the training by leading them across the bridge. Everyone waited a few seconds before following. Harotu, Nameless Child 1, and Nameless Child 2 were the first to begin the obstacle course. When the explosives that Launch had rigged to the bridge went off, Nameless Child 1 was able to dodge most of them. He was the first to reach the daimyo when Elijah stopped near the end of the bridge. That was when the bullet Launch had sent towards Elijah hit Nameless Child 1 instead, ripping through his throat and killing him. He staggered for a few moments before falling through a hole in the bridge to the waters below.

In chapter 3, Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, and Nameless Child 2 continued their training in the Iboinoshishi School. They used their bokkens on stuffed dummies. Not long into their training, Elijah appeared. All of the recruits huddled around the man, but before he could say anything, they demanded to know who had shot Nameless Child 1 and Elijah. He told them it was Makare.

In chapter 4, as he descended Igaron mountain, Daniel looked towards the distant Orange Star City. He thought about how some kids had recently broken into his yard and stolen some of his jabillo fruit, which annoyed him greatly.

In chapter 7, Yajirobe returned to the Iboinoshishi School to find it overgrown with weeds. Nobody had been there in a long time. He thought about how he had been the only one to graduate - Anders (Yajirobe was mistaken about Anders, as Anders did not actually die), Nameless Child 1, Nameless Child 2, and Brian had died, and Harotu had quit.

Nameless Child 2[]

Nameless Child 2 was one of the children who came to the Iboinoshishi School hoping to train to become a samurai. He, along with the rest of the recruits, attempted to complete the first test, which was maintaining a pose for several minutes without moving (until Kumo, their instructor, returned). After fifteen minutes had passed, Kumo returned, telling the remaining thirteen children that they had completed their first test. She told them that it was now time to commence the second test. They would need to steal the hat of General Blue when he and his legion of Red Ribbon Army soldiers entered Orange Star City later that day. Seven of the recruits refused to do so, for they thought they would be killed, but Nameless Child 2 agreed to attempt the second test.

When they woke up, the attendants took them to the dining hall and served them breakfast. As they ate, the group conversed about their harrowing mission the previous day.

Nameless Child 2 was paired with Nameless Child 1. Nameless Child 1 beat Nameless Child 2 in their fight.

The next night, Elijah took his recruits to the crumbling southern bridge in Orange Star City to train. He ordered six attendants to clear some rubble from it before they began. Once his attendants had done so, he dismissed them. Then, he told the children that their task was simple: reach the other end of the bridge without dying.

Harotu, Nameless Child 1, and Nameless Child 2 were the first to begin the obstacle course. When the explosives that Launch had rigged to the bridge went off, Nameless Child 2 was able to dodge most of them. He witnessed the bullet Launch shot, hoping to kill Elijah, tear through Nameless Child 1's throat, which killed him. He staggered for a few moments before falling through a hole in the bridge to the waters below. Yajirobe, Nameless Child 2, and Harotu all dropped to the ground, fearful of being shot at. When no more shots came, they raised their heads and saw that the daimyo had been hit. Yajirobe ran over to him and noticed he was unconscious. He picked the man up, slinging him over a shoulder.

Just then, the bridge started to completely collapse. Everyone ran as fast as they could to the end of the bridge, though only Yajirobe and Elijah made it off the bridge. The other three - Brian having caught up to them - were on a small section of the bridge that had fallen ten feet below the road Yajirobe was standing on. They were clinging to pieces of bridge, trying not to fall off. Yajirobe ran off into the city to search for help.

In chapter 3, Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, and Nameless Child 2 continued their training in the Iboinoshishi School. They used their bokkens on stuffed dummies. Not long into their training, Elijah appeared. All of the recruits huddled around the man, but before he could say anything, they demanded to know who had shot Nameless Child 1 and Elijah. He told them it was Makare. He had not expected Makare to attack his recruits and promised the four of them that he would not allow the man to hurt them in the future. Then, he told them that they were going to do some new training that day and bade them follow him out of the school.

The daimyo and his samurai recruits went to Daniel Parroda's vineyard in Cardan where they met Mark, his younger brother. Elijah asked the boy for 157 barrels, for he planned on rolling them down a hill. Elijah paid for the barrels, handing Mark some zeni, and asked the boy to give that to his brother. Mark demanded to watch their training and Elijah agreed. Then, the daimyo and the recruits tied the barrels together and pulled them through the forest.

While they were going, Brian asked Elijah what they were going to be doing with the barrels. He told them that he was going to roll them down a hill at the recruits, forcing them to dodge the barrels. This shocked Brian, who said that they could die if they weren't fast enough. Elijah did not care, stating once more that they could leave his school at any time if the training got too intense for them. He also revealed that this barrel training was the first test his master had given to him at the school.

It took the five of them more than five hours to move all of the barrels to the chosen hill. Mark accompanied them, but did not help, instead incessantly talking to Elijah the whole time, which irritated the recruits. He boasted that he had filled two hundred barrels with wine that day - including the 157 Elijah had bought. The recruits didn't believe him, but Elijah confirmed it. When they finished moving all of the barrels, the sun was setting. Brian asked Elijah how he had completed this test back in the day, and Elijah showed them the seven-star Dragon Ball, stating that he had found that ball as a kid and the master let him use it during his training. None of them, even the daimyo, knew how it was sturdy enough not to shatter against the barrels.

Afterwards, they began their test. Elijah cut some barrels loose and rolled them down the hill at the four recruits, gradually increasing the pace over time. Brian thought that they should use their bokkens to stop the barrels from hitting them. Nameless Child 2 was decent at that strategy. After Harotu lost his bokken, he asked Nameless Child 2 to help him climb into a tree so he wouldn't have to dodge anymore. The boy agreed to help him up there. The training session finally came to a close with all four recruits succeeding in never getting hit by the barrels.

That night, Yajirobe lay in bed, unable to sleep. When he got up to go on a walk, he noticed Harotu was up too. The other boy and him talked outside of their dormitory, with Harotu putting forth the notion that the four recruits should have fun sometimes by going into the city some nights. Yajirobe was not really up for that, but Harotu did not want to go into the city by himself. Yajirobe suggested Harotu take Nameless Child 2 and Brian with him. Their talking caused Brian to wake up. Harotu told him the plan and the two of them began working out the best places to visit in the city. Soon after, Nameless Child 2 work up and joined in on the fun.

Their first idea was to sneak into a movie theater to see a movie for free. Then, they talked about getting food at some restaurant. Thirdly, they thought about going to Harotu's house to see his family. Finally, they decided to go back to the place where they had stolen General Blue's hat. They also wanted to steal a car. This piqued Yajirobe's interest, for stealing cars was one of his few passions in life. He agreed to go with them to Orange Star City.

They reached the city by two in the morning. Yajirobe found a car, hot-wired it, and drove them down the streets. He almost hit several pedestrians as he drove. He crashed the car in the town square after he hit a tent. When they got out of the mangled car, they heard General Blue singing a Justin Bieber song horrendously nearby. As the car had crashed into his karaoke machine, he grew angry at the device malfunctioning. He shot it four times with his pistol, demanding it to turn on again. When it did not, several of his soldiers consoled him.

Then, he noticed Yajirobe, Harotu, Brian, and Nameless Child 2. In a rage, he raised his pistol at them. He fired once, hitting Nameless Child 2 in the head and killing him.

In chapter 4, as he descended Igaron mountain, Daniel looked towards the distant Orange Star City. He thought about how some kids had recently broken into his yard and stolen some of his jabillo fruit, which annoyed him greatly.

In chapter 7, Yajirobe returned to the Iboinoshishi School to find it overgrown with weeds. Nobody had been there in a long time. He thought about how he had been the only one to graduate - Anders (Yajirobe was mistaken about Anders, as Anders did not actually die), Nameless Child 1, Nameless Child 2, and Brian had died, and Harotu had quit.

General Blue[]

For their second test, the samurai recruits of the Iboinoshishi School were tasked with stealing General Blue's hat as soon as he entered Orange Star City. Before he and his legion did so, he changed into a new set of clothes. He noted that his legion had been hired by a third party for a mercenary job, and due to the money they were willing to pay, Commander Red had given the green light.

After changing into his new set of clothes, Blue marched his soldiers into Orange Star City, hoping for a warm reception from its citizens. Instead, he was ambushed by Brian, Anders, and the two nameless children, who threw a bunch of exploding jabillo fruit at them to distract the man and his army while Harotu and Yajirobe ran in to steal the hat. General Blue shot at the four of them with his pistol, causing them to flee into a nearby building. Blue then ordered Captain Dark to lead the heavy weapons division up to building and destroy it.

While the building was being leveled by the soldiers, Brian jumped from a window out of the side of it and threw the last jabillo fruit at General Blue. It exploded close enough to him to knock his hat off his head. The irate general unloaded another magazine of his pistol at the boy and ran after him, but missed every shot. Brian pled for his life, but Blue would not hear it. Before Blue could reload his pistol, however, Harotu attacked him from behind. After a brief struggle, the boy opened his lighter in Blue's face, which damaged the general enough to allow him and Brian to escape.

Blue remained where he fell for some time, crying and cursing, not letting any soldier get near him, which delayed the setting up of their base of operations for a day. Many of his soldiers attested to the fact that Blue spent the whole night crying about the damage to his face and his vaporized eyebrows.

In chapter 2, when Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, Anders, Nameless Child 1, and Nameless Child 2 were eating breakfast at the Iboinoshishi School, the group conversed about their harrowing mission the previous day. Harotu proudly recounted how he had saved Brian from General Blue. Brian gave Yajirobe credit for running so fast to get his hat. When Harotu asked Yajirobe to back him up, as Yajirobe had seen him save Brian from General Blue, Yajirobe ignored him.

Later, General Blue and his men remained waiting in the town square hoping to get a call from their client. He noted that he had ordered his men to burn down three blocks of houses in retaliation for what the Iboinoshishi School recruits had done to him the previous day. Then, the client called up General Blue, revealing that he was the man who had paid for the Blue Legion to come to Orange Star City. He asked Blue to keep the mission a secret and to only tell his top commanders what they were being paid to do. He also ordered Blue to leave the bodies where they fell, indicating that he was sending the Red Ribbon Army to kill some people, but who those victims were was not revealed on the phone call. He told Blue that his name was Daniel, though did not reveal anything else. He asked Blue not to call him back until he had completed his task. Then, he hung up and texted Blue the instructions for what he was to do.

The general was a little unnerved by what he had to do. He reminded himself that Commander Red had trusted him with this task, and thus he had no choice but to do it. He later called Daniel up to tell him that he had succeeded in his task: killing all of the Solipsist Colony monks. Daniel was relieved, thanked the man, and hung up.

In chapter 3, after crashing their hovercar into a tent at two in the morning in Orange Star City, Yajirobe, Harotu, Brian, and Nameless Child 2 got out of the mangled car and heard General Blue singing a Justin Bieber song horrendously nearby. As the car had crashed into his karaoke machine, he grew angry at the device malfunctioning. He shot it four times with his pistol, demanding it to turn on again. When it did not, several of his soldiers consoled him.

Then, he noticed Yajirobe, Harotu, Brian, and Nameless Child 2. In a rage, he raised his pistol at them. He fired once, hitting Nameless Child 2 in the head and killing him. The other three fled. Blue and two of his guards pursued Brian. He ran down the road, but was soon attacked by Launch, who had noticed him and the others crawl out the crashed hovercar. She attempted to attack him, drawing a knife after he kicked her off of him. The boy managed to evade her in close quarters long enough for General Blue's next shot, which was aimed at him, to hit Launch in the shoulder.

Brian ran off, the woman collapsing in the street, as Blue pursued him with two of his guards. As they ran past the woman, she shot both of Blue's guards killing them and just barely missing him. Outraged, Blue stopped his pursuit of Brian and fired upon Launch. However, he missed. She fired at him and missed. He ran up to her before she could get another shot off and kicked her across the face. She managed to punch him, and then the two rolled around on the ground, trying to suffocate one another. Blue's aversion to women made him indecisive, and eventually he had to jump off of her. However, Launch was still armed with a snub pistol. She fired it at him, but his body armor was strong enough to absorb all but one of the bullets (which knicked him on his arm between the pieces of armor).

Then, she threw a chair at him. He ran at her, but she threw a ketchup bottle at his face, which broke his nose and dazed him, sending him to the ground. He was barely conscious as Launch jumped on him and tried to suffocate him. Blue rolled around as she held onto his throat, knocking over tables. One of those tables had salt and pepper condiments on it, and when they knocked it over in their fighting, the two shakers landed on them, causing Launch to sneeze and revert to her blue hair form. When General Blue got to his feet, he could hardly see or breathe. He did not notice that the blue-haired woman who stood amongst the pedestrians dining at the restaurant he had just fought his way through was actually Launch.

In chapter 4, Daniel regretted the fact that he hadn't been able to pay General Blue and his men to kill Naigo. They had to leave Orange Star City after killing the solipsist monks to begin their hunt for the Dragon Balls. Under General Blue's orders, the Blue Legion destroyed much of Orange Star City on their way out due to their interactions with Launch and the Iboinoshishi School recruits. Later, Yajirobe silently thanked General Blue for clearing out so many people, as it made the western park a tranquil place.

Captain Dark[]

Captain Dark accompanied General Blue and the Blue Corps. to Orange Star City. He handed the general his capsule full of fresh clothes before they did so. Later, he and the rest of Blue's men followed him into the city. After the Blue Legion was attacked by Brian, Anders, and the two nameless children with exploding jabillo fruit, General Blue shot at them with his pistol, causing them to flee into a nearby building. Blue then ordered Captain Dark to lead the heavy weapons division up to building and destroy it.

Commander Red[]

In chapter 1, General Blue noted that his legion had been hired by a third party for a mercenary job, and due to the money they were willing to pay, Commander Red had given the green light.

In chapter 2, after General Blue got a text message from his client, Daniel, telling him what the Blue Legion's mission was in Orange Star City, the general felt a little unnerved by what he had to do. He reminded himself that Commander Red had trusted him with this task, and thus he had no choice but to do it.

Brian's mother[]

When Brian, Yajirobe, Harotu, Anders, and the two nameless recruits were formulating a strategy to steal General Blue's hat, Brian brought up that his mother had known a man named Mr. Parroda. Pointing out the man's house, Brian got an idea for how to get the hat by using the jabillo.

In chapter 4, while Yajirobe, Brian, and Harotu were eating in a diner, Yajirobe noticed a photo of Daniel Parroda and remembered that that man had given him a flyer of the Iboinoshishi School in chapter 1. He asked a waitress who the man was, and she told him that Daniel was the regional lightweight boxing champion. Brian once again brought up the fact that he and his mother had gone to Mr. Parroda's house sometimes to have dinner.

Brian's brother[]

When Brian was explaining the jabillo fruit to the other samurai recruits, he mentioned that he and his brother had used to play at Mr. Parroda's house and had messed around with the jabillo fruit, leading to some pretty bad injuries.

Elijah's master[]

Near the end of chapter 1, Kumo and Elijah talked about how the previous master of the Iboinoshishi School had let Elijah into the school even though he had been a country boy - the first to be allowed into the school.

In chapter 3, Elijah told his four remaining recruits that the barrel test - rolling barrels down a hill and forcing the recruits at the bottom to dodge them - was the first test his master had given him when he joined the school.

In chapter 4, when Makare confronted Yajirobe, Brian, and Harotu, he disparaged Elijah's leadership, stating that the previous master of the school had been brash to make Elijah his successor.

In chapter 5, when Elijah confronted Makare, he remarked that it had only been their old master who had prevented Elijah from killing Makare in the past. Soon after Elijah declared that only Yajirobe and Brian knew where the old master's grave was (an obvious lie), and if Makare killed them, that secret died with them. Makare was taken aback, for he had loved his old master. He ordered Naigo to take the children prisoner so they could be interrogated about the grave's location.

In chapter 6, Brian told Yajirobe that they had been brought to Igaron mountain to be questioned by Makare and Naigo about the location of the grave of Elijah and Makare's master. While torturing Brian, Naigo claimed that Elijah had killed Makare's master, though there was no way of knowing if that was true.

Solipsist Colony[]

In chapter 2, Makare met with Naigo on the side of Igaron mountain. Naigo told him that his training in creating ki attacks with the Solipsist Colony, a group of forty-nine monks, was still ongoing, though their constant philosophical debates were draining his patience. Naigo showed him a ki blast, but it wasn't very large. He promised to complete his training with the monks within a few weeks. These monks were later killed by the Red Ribbon Army after the Blue Legion was hired by Daniel to perform that task.

In chapter 3, Naigo updated Makare on his ki control training, stating it would only take him one more week to master. The two samurai were unaware that the monks had been murdered earlier that morning. The next day, Naigo stumbled upon the dead solipsist monks in their lair inside Igaron mountain and grew furious. He immediately suspected Daniel.

Naigo called up Makare to tell him what had happened. Makare asked him if the monks had kept manuscripts for their training sessions, and Naigo said that they did. This was a relief for both of them, as it meant that Naigo would be able to teach himself how to master ki control, although it would take much longer for him to do so without having a teacher guiding him. Makare ordered Naigo to dispose of the bodies before he and the rest of their army took arrived to take up residence in the monks' cave in Igaron mountain.

Naigo told one of the corpses that he was going to eat him that night, implying that he was going to cannibalize at least some of the dead men.

In chapter 4, Elijah revealed to Makare that he knew about the solipsist monks teaching him (though it had actually been Naigo who they had taught), calling their philosophy delusional and their ki attacks cheap tricks.

In chapter 5, Elijah told Brian that Daniel had not gotten to the solipsist monks quick enough, as Naigo had still been able to learn how to control ki blasts.

In chapter 6, a flashback revealed what happened to Daniel in the previous chapter. In it, he was called up by Makare to discuss some matter in person. He feared that Makare had figured out that it had been him who had killed the solipsist monks. When Makare visited Daniel's house in Cardan, he accused Daniel of paying the Red Ribbon Army to kill the solipsist monks, as Daniel was the only one rich enough to do so who knew about those monks.

Launch[]

In chapter 2, Launch met with Makare and Naigo on the side of Igaron mountain. Naigo did not seem to like her. Makare told her that Elijah, the Daimyo of the Iboinoshishi School, had begun taking in new students. He put out a hit on the students, as well as Elijah, if she could manage it. Launch agreed to try and then left. Naigo was annoyed that Makare had not mentioned their alliance with Launch beforehand and also did not believe that she would succeed in her mission. Makare agreed, thinking that she would serve more as a distraction than anything else.

Later, Launch used a TC-150 anti-material long rifle to snipe at Elijah, Yajirobe, Brian, Harotu, Nameless Child 1, and Nameless Child 2. The group was training on the crumbling southern bridge in Orange Star City. With them were six attendants who were clearing some rubble from the bridge. She waited for them to leave before proceeding and verified the identities of all the samurai before attacking them. She had also rigged the bridge with explosives the night before.

When the group began running across the bridge, she detonated the explosives one by one, which she believed killed several of the recruits. Then, she aimed for Elijah. When he stopped near the end of the bridge, waiting for his pupils to catch up, she took her shot. However, just then, Nameless Child 1 came to a stop right in front of Elijah and took the bullet to the throat, killing him. The bullet tore through him and hit Elijah in the upper leg, significantly wounding him. She believed this killed him. As she did not see any other students who had survived the detonations, she left, deciding to return to Makare with the good news.

In chapter 3, Naigo asked Makare what had happened with Launch. The other samurai said he had not heard from her yet, but was not worried, for he did not believe that Daniel would have killed her. Later, Launch was seen in Orange Star City relaxing following her destruction of the southern bridge the previous night. She was annoyed by the Red Ribbon Army soldiers making a ruckus in the city. She noted that she had inspected the collapsed bridge after shooting Elijah, though she had not found any bodies. She decided to celebrate a bit with some bar hopping before calling up Makare.

When she decided to call Makare, she noticed General Blue singing a Justin Bieber song, which distracted her until Yajirobe crashed a hovercar into the karaoke machine. She called up Makare, but he didn't answer, so she left him a message stating that she had killed Elijah and his five students. She demanded that Makare pay her. Then, she noticed that the four boys crawling out of the wreckage of the crashed hovercar were some of Elijah's recruits (recognizing Yajirobe in particular).

Outraged that they had somehow survived her attack the previous night, she dropped to a knee, unshouldered her sniper rifle, and aimed it at them. Before she could shoot, General Blue shot Nameless Child 2 in the head, killing him. As the other three ran off, she chased after them. She reached Brian, drawing a knife after he kicked her off of him. The boy managed to evade her in close quarters long enough for General Blue's next shot, which was aimed at him, to hit Launch in the shoulder. Brian ran off, and General Blue pursued him with two of his guards.

As they ran past the woman, she shot both of Blue's guards, just barely missing him. Outraged, Blue stopped his pursuit of Brian and fired upon Launch. However, he missed. She fired at him and missed. He ran up to her before she could get another shot off and kicked her across the face. She managed to punch him, and then the two rolled around on the ground, trying to suffocate one another. Blue's aversion to women made him indecisive, and eventually he had to jump off of her.

However, Launch was still armed with a snub pistol. She fired it at him, but his body armor was strong enough to absorb all but one of the bullets (which knicked him on his arm between the pieces of armor). Then, she threw a chair at him. He ran at her, but she threw a ketchup bottle at his face, which broke his nose and dazed him, sending him to the ground. He was barely conscious as Launch jumped on him and tried to suffocate him. Blue rolled around as she held onto his throat, knocking over tables. One of those tables had salt and pepper condiments on it, and when they knocked it over in their fighting, the two shakers landed on them, causing Launch to sneeze and revert to her blue hair form. When General Blue got to his feet, he could hardly see or breathe. He did not notice that the blue-haired woman who stood amongst the pedestrians dining at the restaurant he had just fought his way through was actually Launch.

Later, when Naigo called up Makare on the phone, Makare told him that Launch had sent him a message stating that she had killed Elijah and his pupils, which Makare did not entirely believe.

Yajirobe's mother[]

In chapter 2, during his first breakfast at the Iboinoshishi School, Yajirobe found bacon and thought it was the most delicious thing in the world. He asked everyone what it was. Harotu told him and was shocked that Yajirobe had never encountered it before. He asked if Yajirobe's mother had ever cooked it before. Yajirobe had not known his mother, however. His father had never spoken of her.

Yajirobe's father[]

In chapter 2, during his first breakfast at the Iboinoshishi School, Yajirobe found bacon and thought it was the most delicious thing in the world. He asked everyone what it was. Harotu told him and was shocked that Yajirobe had never encountered it before. He asked if Yajirobe's mother had ever cooked it before. Yajirobe had not known his mother, however. His father had never spoken of her.

Daniel's housemates[]

In chapter 2, Daniel noted that his house reeked of mandarin oranges due to his roommates. Later, one of his female roommates entered his room to converse with him about something, though he was tired and his leg still hurt from a wound he had sustained in a boxing match the previous night.

Daniel's servants[]

In chapter 2, Daniel thought that perhaps one of his servants had been in his room and moved the box with the Dragon Ball on top of three books. Then, he remembered that he told them not to clean his room that day and had locked the door. Since he had the only key, it was not possible for them to have entered his room.

Mark[]

In chapter 3, Elijah and his samurai recruits went to Daniel Parroda's vineyard in Cardan where they met Mark, his younger brother. Elijah asked the boy for 157 barrels, for he planned on rolling them down a hill. Elijah paid for the barrels, handing Mark some zeni, and asked the boy to give that to his brother. Mark demanded to watch their training and Elijah agreed.

Mark accompanied the group as they moved the barrels to the hill, but did not help, instead incessantly talking to Elijah the whole time, which irritated the recruits. He boasted that he had filled two hundred barrels with wine that day - including the 157 Elijah had bought. The recruits didn't believe him, but Elijah confirmed it.

As the recruits dodged the barrels that Elijah cut loose, Mark screamed from the top of the hill, wishing for the barrels to hit the recruits. Unfortunately for him, the four kids were expert dodgers. The training session finally came to a close with all four recruits succeeding in never getting hit by the barrels. Walking down the hill with Mark, he asked the boy to tell his brother Daniel that he wanted to meet with him soon, as it had been a long time since they had seen each other. Mark agreed to relay the message.

In chapter 4, Daniel thought about the fact that he was being forced to pay Makare, and thus fund part of his operation, so that Makare would not kill his brother Mark and destroy their winery.

Later in the chapter, Yajirobe, Brian, and Harotu noticed that someone was following them down Pallard Street in Orange Star City. They hid inside a half-ruined building in order to catch a glimpse of who was following them. They realized it was Mark, the boy who had been at that winery. Yajirobe was enraged and attacked the boy, beating him into submission. He wanted to set off a firecracker in Mark's face, but Harotu thought that was too violent.

Mark then revealed that he was walking home, having just come from a karate class his brother had been teaching. He demanded a rematch with Yajirobe, confidently stating that he would punch the older boy in the face. They fought, though Mark got the better of Yajirobe until the older boy distracted him (by goading him into boasting about his abilities and his brother Daniel's abilities), allowing him to untie his show and then kick it at his opponent. The force of impact sent Mark flying back, breaking his nose.

The delirious boy was unable to block several of Yajirobe's punches, though he finally dodged one, which caused Yajirobe's momentum to almost make him fall over, allowing Mark to gain distance from the boy. He picked up the shoe that had been thrown at him, hopped on Yajirobe's back, and began to choke him with the strings. Yajirobe dropped to the ground, slamming his back against it to get Mark to fall off. They rolled around on the ground for a while until Harotu, having had enough, ran up to Mark and smacked him in the back of the head with his backpack, sending the boy flying to the sidewalk, where he landed in a pool of blood. Later, as Yajirobe left the street, he stepped on Mark's body purposefully as he went.

In chapter 5, when Brian and Yajirobe reached Daniel's winery, they found no sign of Mark amongst the wreckage.

In chapter 6, a flashback revealed what happened to Daniel in the previous chapter. In it, he was called up by Makare to discuss some matter in person. He feared that Makare had figured out that it had been him who had killed the solipsist monks. He woke up his brother Mark, who was sleeping at the time, preparing to move him from the house. Daniel told him to pack a bag and head for their house in the city. His little brother did not understand, but there was no time for Daniel to say anything more, as that was when Makare showed up. He threw his championship belt in Mark's bag before he left. As Makare kicked the back door in, Mark ran out the front door, back to Orange Star City.

Later, when Yajirobe returned to the Iboinoshishi School, he found Mark and Elijah inside the daimyo's chambers. Elijah was lying in bed while Mark applied bandages to his wounds. The two samurai talked for a while. Elijah told Yajirobe that the Iboinoshishi School would be closing down and that he was going to go see his old friend the Ox-King. Then, Yajirobe took his leave. He returned the seven-star Dragon Ball to Elijah. The man thanked him and asked Mark for more water, for if he were going to travel to see the Ox-King, he would need lots of water.

In chapter 7, when Yajirobe returned to the Iboinoshishi School, he noted that Elijah was no longer living there. He wondered if the man was living with the Ox-King. He also wondered what had happened to Mark. He hoped the boy had become a beggar. When Yajirobe returned to Orange Star City, he found it quite changed. There were posters all over the place of famous street fighters, such as Manotaur, Bastion Booger, M.I. Smooth, Tugboat, Mr. Satan, Ze Gangsta, and the most famous one: The Blue Meanie. Yajirobe and Yamcha made their way to a restaurant, but before they could step inside, they were swept up by a crowd of people who were watching Mr. Satan fight The Blue Meanie. Mr. Satan won in seconds, after chopping his opponent in the neck and knocking him unconscious. Mr. Satan boasted quite a bit about his win. Yajirobe found Mr. Satan to be vaguely familiar but could not remember if he had met him before or not.

Harotu's family[]

In chapter 3, while discussing where to run off to in the city to have some fun, Harotu floated the idea of visiting his family. Ultimately, the samurai recruits did not go to see his family.

Makare's Band[]

In chapter 3, after learning of the deaths of the solipsist monks, Makare ordered Naigo to bring all of their samurai to the monks' cave in Igaron mountain, as he planned on using them against Elijah (assuming Launch had lied about killing them) in his future assault of the Iboinoshishi School. Naigo was unconvinced that the low-level samurai would be worth using, as Elijah would be able to kill all of them single-handedly. Nevertheless, he agreed to bring their soldiers to that cave when Makare reminded him that Elijah's pupils would surely die to their men.

In chapter 4, Daniel visited the Solipsist Colony's cave dwelling in Igaron mountain, where Makare, Naigo, and their samurai had taken up residence. He rigged the place with explosives, noting that Makare and Naigo would kill him if they found him.

Later in the story, Yajirobe, Brian, and Harotu noticed two men (who were members of Makare's Band) enter a diner and watch them. This caused the boys to leave, as they felt threatened. The men showed up again on the streets of Orange Star City shortly after Harotu knocked out Mark. They drew katanas and attacked the boys. Brian was wounded by one man, although Yajirobe saved him from certain death by throwing his body at the man. The samurai calmly knocked Yajirobe out with the hilt of his blade and then went after Brian and Harotu. They attacked him with fists and a backpack, causing the other man, who had slunk off down a side alley to come up behind them, to return and help his comrade overcome the children. He picked up Brian by the hair, but the boy stabbed him in the arm with a piece of glass, causing him to drop him and his katana. Brian scooped it up and stabbed him, but it didn't go in very far, and the man was able to wrench it loose from Brian's control immediately after. He drew a dagger and charged the boy, but he stepped on Yajirobe on his way over. This woke the bigger boy up. He kicked the samurai in the shin, causing him to fall screaming.

Meanwhile, Harotu was chased into a building by the other man. The two other boys questioned their prisoner on who he was and why he was attacking them, but just then the second samurai returned from the building, holding Harotu by the hair. Brian attempted to duel him, but before he could, Makare appeared and beheaded the samurai who was holding Harotu after he refused to let him go.

Makare fled after Elijah appeared, leaving the last samurai in the possession of the Iboinoshishi School. Harotu asked the daimyo what they were supposed to do about their prisoner. The man attempted to run off, but Yajirobe and Brian stopped him. Elijah threw his knife to them and told them to deal with the threat however they wished. Then, he walked off, returning to the Iboinoshishi School. Brian and Harotu refused to kill the man, leaving the task to Yajirobe. They returned to the Iboinoshishi School, not wanting to watch him do it.

Once alone with the man, the samurai tried to get away, but Yajirobe knocked the wind out of him. The man begged for mercy, but the boy did not listen at first. He pressed the blade to the man's neck and cut it just a little bit. The man violently thrashed, pushing Yajirobe away from him. It was at that moment that Yajirobe grew disgusted with his task. He couldn't go through with it anymore, so he let the man go, though he told him not to forget this mercy. The man ran off.

At the start of chapter 5, Makare and Naigo prepared to assault the Iboinoshishi School. Naigo believed that having roughly two hundred thirty samurai would be enough to swarm the place, but Makare believed they would need at least seven hundred to overwhelm Elijah, Kumo, the students, and the attendants. Naigo doubted that there were that many samurai left in the entire world. Makare told him that none of the 143 samurai who had graduated from the Iboinoshishi School in the past were following him now, and those who were still alive were either mercenaries or petty thieves anyways. He was unwilling to hire them to bolster his forces. He promised to get more money from Daniel in order to hire more samurai before assaulting the Iboinoshishi School, leaving Naigo in charge of the group while he was gone.

As Elijah trained his students over the next few weeks, Makare's Band began setting up camp on the mountainsides all around the Iboinoshishi School. Their numbers frightened Harotu and Yajirobe. They held back for four weeks as their numbers built up. The Iboinoshishi recruits continued their intense training session throughout those weeks until on one fateful, rainy day, a servant rang the bell at the front gate. Elijah, Kumo, and the students ran to see what was the matter. They beheld a black horse and a rider, who was one of the servants. He was headless. This signaled Makare's attack.

The samurai began marching towards the school, spilling out from the mountainsides. Later, when Brian and Yajirobe ran to Daniel's house, they met eight of Makare's men on the road, but made short work of them after Brian snuck up behind them and Yajirobe charged them headlong at the same time. Hundreds of these samurai fought in the assault of the Iboinoshishi School, and hundreds of them died in the battle. Some were even killed by Naigo's energy attack that had been aimed at Yajirobe. They eventually won the battle at the Iboinoshishi School. Several were tasked with binding Yajirobe and Brian's arms and legs. After taking the boys hostage (for they supposedly knew the location of Makare's master's grave), they, Naigo, and Makare retreated to Igaron mountain to interrogate the boys.

In chapter 6, a flashback revealed what happened to Daniel in the previous chapter. In it, he was called up by Makare to discuss some matter in person. He feared that Makare had figured out that it had been him who had killed the solipsist monks. He took out his TACPAD. He could destroy the cave where Makare's Band was staying if he pressed a button, but he did not know if they were still in there or not. He was waiting on a message from Elijah for when to press the button.

Brian later mentioned to Yajirobe that it was no use trying to escape from their prison cells in Igaron mountain, as many samurai guards were stationed outside, and the boys did not have their katanas. Soon after, Naigo and two guards came and took Brian away.

Later, when Yajirobe threw himself at the metal door, hoping to knock it over, this roused the suspicion of a guard. This guard was the same man Yajirobe had spared in Orange Star City a little more than a month prior. After a short talk, Yajirobe got the man to set him free in order to pay him back for saving his life previously.

Naigo took Brian to the center of the cave, where Makare and several other soldiers were. After Naigo wounded Brian to the point where the boy could hardly breath, let alone talk, he ordered some soldiers to bring Yajirobe in. None of the soldiers saw Brian escape from Naigo, as his exploding ki attack had lit up the room. Several of these samurai ran with Naigo after Brian moments later. Soon after, Harotu's back of fireworks caused Daniel's explosives to go off, and this caused every single samurai in Makare's Band (save for Makare himself) to die in the explosion and subsequent cave collapse.

After defeating Makare and his samurai, Yajirobe made his way back to the Iboinoshishi School and noticed all the bodies of the samurai and attendants. Later, Yajirobe returned to Elijah and reported on the deaths of Makare, Naigo, and all of Makare's Band.

Elijah's parents[]

In chapter 4, Daniel thought about how Elijah's parents had owned his land before he had come into possession of it.

Previous Iboinoshishi recruits[]

When Naigo asked Makare why he didn't have any former recruits following him, Makare told him that none of the 143 samurai who had graduated from the Iboinoshishi School in the past were following him now, and those who were still alive were either mercenaries or petty thieves anyways. He was unwilling to hire them to bolster his forces.

Ox-King[]

In chapter 6, Yajirobe returned to the Iboinoshishi School after vanquishing Makare and his band of samurai. He visited the daimyo's chambers where Elijah and Mark were. The two samurai talked for a while. Elijah told Yajirobe that the Iboinoshishi School would be closing down and that he was going to go see his old friend the Ox-King. Then, Yajirobe took his leave. He returned the seven-star Dragon Ball to Elijah. The man thanked him and asked Mark for more water, for if he were going to travel to see the Ox-King, he would need lots of water.

In chapter 7, when Yajirobe returned to the Iboinoshishi School, he noted that Elijah was no longer living there. He wondered if the man was living with the Ox-King.

Goku[]

In Age 753, Yajirobe found the one-star Dragon Ball in the bottom of a pond. This ball was what led him to meeting Goku and getting involved in several quests with the boy, culminating in Yajirobe ending up living on Korin Tower with Korin himself.

Korin[]

In Age 753, Yajirobe found the one-star Dragon Ball in the bottom of a pond. This ball was what led him to meeting Goku and getting involved in several quests with the boy, culminating in Yajirobe ending up living on Korin Tower with Korin himself. It was after Yajirobe came to live there that Korin asked him why he wasn't training like Tien, Yamcha, Krillin, and Chiaotzu were. He goaded Yajirobe by saying that the four of them were getting stronger than him by training for the next World Martial Arts Tournament. Korin secretly confided to Yajirobe that he was the strongest of the five (though if he was lying was debatable). He also mentioned the Ƶ500,000 cash prize. Yajirobe agreed to enter the tournament, but first he wanted to take a nap.

In chapter 7, Yajirobe decided to finally start training for the next World Martial Arts Tournament, as Korin's words of encouragement and the promise of a huge zeni payload in the previous chapter had inspired him. He felt uncomfortable training around Tien, Krillin, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu, however, so he decided to leave Korin Tower to train somewhere else. Korin confronted him before he left and thought he should take Yamcha with him in order to have someone to spar with. Yajirobe stated that he would rather fight King Piccolo than train with Yamcha.

Despite Korin's pestering, Yajirobe refused to change his mind. He jumped over the railing and made his way back down to ground level. Korin went over to Yamcha and told him that Yajirobe had agreed to train with him, and commanded Yamcha meet up with him at the bottom of Korin Tower immediately. Yamcha frantically ran to get his gym bag, said goodbye to Krillin, Tien, and Chiaotzu, and then jumped down Korin Tower to find Yajirobe. Later, when Yamcha met up with Yajirobe, he said it had been Korin's idea to have the two of them train together.

Tien[]

In chapter 6, after Yajirobe came to live on Korin Tower, Korin asked him why he wasn't training like Tien, Yamcha, Krillin, and Chiaotzu were. He goaded Yajirobe by saying that the four of them were getting stronger than him by training for the next World Martial Arts Tournament. Korin secretly confided to Yajirobe that he was the strongest of the five (though if he was lying was debatable). This ultimately motivated Yajirobe to enter the tournament.

Tien, Krillin, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu were training throughout the opening scene of this chapter. When Yamcha left to go train with Yajirobe, he said goodbye to the others.

Yamcha[]

In chapter 6, after Yajirobe came to live on Korin Tower, Korin asked him why he wasn't training like Tien, Yamcha, Krillin, and Chiaotzu were. He goaded Yajirobe by saying that the four of them were getting stronger than him by training for the next World Martial Arts Tournament. Korin secretly confided to Yajirobe that he was the strongest of the five (though if he was lying was debatable). This ultimately motivated Yajirobe to enter the tournament.

Tien, Krillin, Yamcha, and Chiaotzu were training throughout the opening scene of this chapter.

After Yajirobe left Korin Tower, Korin went over to Yamcha and told him that Yajirobe had agreed to train with him (which was a lie), and commanded Yamcha meet up with him at the bottom of Korin Tower immediately. Yamcha frantically ran to get his gym bag, said goodbye to Krillin, Tien, and Chiaotzu, and then jumped down Korin Tower to find Yajirobe.

Yajirobe set out for Orange Star City, while Yamcha tracked him. When the samurai was only a few miles away from the city, Yajirobe noticed that someone was following him. He undid his sleeping bag and pretended to sleep in it in order to lure the person to him. When they got close, he jumped up and tried to slice them apart with his katana, but they kicked him back and then kicked him again in the arm, knocking his sword away. That was when Yajirobe saw that his stalker was Yamcha. Yamcha told him that Korin had requested they train together.

That enraged Yajirobe. He attacked Yamcha with a series of punches, culminating in him grabbing his opponent by the hair, throwing him into the air, and headbutting him as he came tumbling down. They continued to fight, with Yajirobe getting the better of Yamcha until the latter performed an afterimage technique. This confused Yajirobe, allowing his opponent to get several good punches that knocked the wind out of the samurai. Then, Yamcha tried a Wolf Fang Fist on him. In the time it took him to charge up the attack, Yajirobe grabbed his sword. As Yamcha ran at him, Yajirobe sliced him across the face twice, scarring Yamcha permanently on the cheek. This outraged Yamcha. Yajirobe refused to train with him, but the other man was stubborn too. He wasn't going anywhere. They spent the night together, though Yajirobe got little rest as Yamcha howled in his sleep.

In the morning, Yajirobe was too tired to whine about Yamcha being there anymore, so the two of them went to Orange Star City together. Yamcha accompanied Yajirobe to the Iboinoshishi School, but did not say anything as the samurai reminesced. Then, they made their way to the city. In the city, there were posters all over the place of famous street fighters, such as Manotaur, Bastion Booger, M.I. Smooth, Tugboat, Mr. Satan, Ze Gangsta, and the most famous one: The Blue Meanie. Yajirobe and Yamcha made their way to a restaurant, but before they could step inside, they were swept up by a crowd of people who were watching Mr. Satan fight The Blue Meanie. Mr. Satan won in seconds, after chopping his opponent in the neck and knocking him unconscious. Mr. Satan boasted quite a bit about his win.

However, Yajirobe was more interested in The Blue Meanie, for he thought that guy's mask had been very cool. He found a mask for sale at a kiosk down the road for three zeni and bought it. He put it on and showed it to Yamcha. Yamcha laughed. The mask made him feel confident, so he finally agreed to train with Yamcha, which delighted the other man.

Krillin[]

In chapter 6, after Yajirobe came to live on Korin Tower, Korin asked him why he wasn't training like Tien, Yamcha, Krillin, and Chiaotzu were. He goaded Yajirobe by saying that the four of them were getting stronger than him by training for the next World Martial Arts Tournament. Korin secretly confided to Yajirobe that he was the strongest of the five (though if he was lying was debatable). This ultimately motivated Yajirobe to enter the tournament.

Chiaotzu[]

He goaded Yajirobe by saying that the four of them were getting stronger than him by training for the next World Martial Arts Tournament.

King Piccolo[]

In chapter 7, Yajirobe told Korin that he would rather fight King Piccolo than train with Yamcha.

Humans[]

In chapter 7, as Yajirobe moved through cities in his journey to return to Orange Star City, he realized that there were almost no samurai left, as many of the local residents were surprised to see him and his katana.

Cymbal[]

In chapter 7, Yajirobe thought about how skilled he had been in killing Cymbal and how good that corrupted Namekian had tasted.

Orange Star City street fighters[]

In chapter 7, when Yajirobe returned to Orange Star City, he found it quite changed. There were posters all over the place of famous street fighters, such as Manotaur, Bastion Booger, M.I. Smooth, Tugboat, Mr. Satan, Ze Gangsta, and the most famous one: The Blue Meanie. Yajirobe and Yamcha made their way to a restaurant, but before they could step inside, they were swept up by a crowd of people who were watching Mr. Satan fight The Blue Meanie. Mr. Satan won in seconds, after chopping his opponent in the neck and knocking him unconscious. Yajirobe really liked The Blue Meanie's mask, and it inspired him to buy one and wear it in the next World Martial Arts tournament.
