Kakucho (鶴かく蝶ちょう, Kakuchō?) was the Defense Unit Captain of the Kanto Manji Gang. He was the head of the Four Heavenly Kings of Tenjiku and Izana Kurokawa’s right hand man, and later a member of the top administration of Rokuhara Tandai where he is addressed as “Leader”. In an alternate present timeline, he is Bonten’s Number 3.

Kakucho is a tall young man with natural black hair fashioned in a buzz cut. He has a prominent scar running from the back of his skull to the leftmost side of his face that slightly touches the corner of his left visually impaired eye. He has firm S-shaped eyebrows and always wears a single drop earring on his right earlobe.
In an alternate timeline, where he is a notable member of Bonten, Kakucho sports an aegean blue curtain hairstyle and his signature earring. He wears an all black outfit consisting of a knee-length trench coat, sweatpants, and a pair of sandals.
He has the Bonten logo tattooed on the uppermost side of his left pectoral. During his time in Tenjiku and Rokuhara Tandai, Kakucho wore the standard gang uniforms.
Due to his tragic upbringing that left him as an orphan, Kakucho is closed-off when it comes to trusting others. At the fight between the Tokyo Manji Gang and Tenjiku, Kakucho tells Takemichi Hanagaki that he will not hesitate to mercilessly kill him even if he was a childhood friend.
This is due to his unyielding trust on Izana Kurokawa, his self proclaimed “master” since childhood, because of their mutual harsh experiences as orphans, who both met and grew up as brothers in solitude at an orphanage.
His loyalty toward Izana is his drive to fight against Izana’s enemies or anyone who views them both as opponents, making Kakucho himself a compliant servant to his king.
Skills and Abilities Kakucho
As a Heavenly King of Tenjiku and Izana’s right-hand man, Kakucho’s power is second only to the gang’s leader. Nonetheless, he is able to freely order its members.
Kakucho’s strength is acknowledged to be one of the strongest in Tenjiku. He proves his mettle through his victory against Souya Kawata during the battle between the Tokyo Manji Gang and Tenjiku.
After this victory, he immediately took down Chifuyu Matsuno, and Seishu Inui in one swoop. He is extremely fast, so much so that Angry, in peak condition, was not able to react in time for his attacks.
