Kyokan is a Senjutsu master and member of the Kei Pirate Guild.


"Creeping Evil"

When Yase and Kyokan learn of the location of the XGP 15A-II from Fred Luo, they head for Sentinel III. They bugged Jim Hawking's car, the Ehefrau, to overhear conversations held by the Gene Starwind and his group.[1]

The day Yase attempts to take the Outlaw Star, Kyokan visits Starwind and Hawking to capture Melfina. He knocked on the door and fooled her into thinking he was Gene or Jim. She attempted to run from him, using another exit of the building. However, he used a spiked mace to destroy the wall she approached, blocking her escape.[1]

His attempt to incapacitate her was stopped by the arrival of Suzuka. Kyokan warns her not to interfere with his mission. Suzuka declares that Gene Starwind's life is hers to take, ignoring Kyokan's warning. The two engage in a heated battle, using their respective techniques against one another.

During their fight, Suzuka acknowledges that Kyokan is a Senjutsu master, and Kyokan pays her a compliment and calls her techniques "interesting". Despite their mutual respect for each other's abilities, Suzuka was able to kill Kyokan using the first of her techniques.[1]



Kyokan is a large adult male with brown eyes and long, brown hair.


Kyokan is in many ways the opposite of Yase, with whom he comes to Sentinel III to recapture Melfina and the XGP. While Yase will tease and taunt his enemies with glee, Kyokan rarely speaks at all, and when he does speak, his voice is calm and fairly soft. Where Yase is cowardly and fears death, Kyokan is honorable and accepts death. Following his defeat, acknowledges Suzuka as a worthy opponent.


Kyokan is a talented master of Senjutsu, able to use said ability to create a powerful shield around himself that protected against Suzuka's attacks. He was also shown to be highly proficient with his flail, easily smashing through stone walls and ultimately forcing Suzuka to use one of her secret techniques to defeat him.
