is the fiercely loyal second-in-command of Benawi's cavalry men, and the former samurai leader over the country of Kenashikourupe, though neither he nor Benawi seem to care for the emperor so much as they do for the empire. When the emperor falls, he remains loyal to Benawi, and, in turn, to Hakuoro, to whom Benawi swears allegiance. Kurou tends to be a source of comedic relief of the anime. He is usually seen either arguing with Oboro, due to Kurou's teasing of Oboro, helping to plan military actions, training with his men, or using a thick, long sword with immense skill, cutting down his opponents. Even without his steed or any weapons, he is shown to be capable of defeating a small army with his bare hands, alone.
