Hulking, very muscular man who wears a very tiny Terakado Imperial uniform along with red bandanna on his head. He has blonde hair and mustache.
He cannot speak japanese at all and instead utters english phrases like "french bread" and "time is money". He works for Gintoki for french bread during Otaku arc.
He was introduced when Takachin タカチン collapsed after Okita Sougo ran over him in a taxi. Gintoki took Takachin to the hospital and came back hiring a foreigner as a sub for Taka-chin during the Otsuu Fan Club Battle. He demands 10,000 yen per hour (1 french bread each hour from 3 hours onwards). Hijitaka claims that this fraud but Gintoki claims that Takachin evolve as he ran over to the finish line.
