Itou Takahisa (伊東 鷹久) was the sickly older child of a pair of twin brothers. His younger brother Itou Kamotarou was a healthy child, who excelled in both the literary and martial arts, earning the nickame of 'gifted child'. Itou's mother blamed him for his older brother's condition as Itou was healthy.



  • The manga author's choice of the names for the 2 brothers is noteworthy. Itou Takahisa's name has the kanji character 'eagle' while Itou Kamotarou's name has the kanji character 'duck' in it. The almost antithetical connotations of the 2 birds are hard to miss.
