As the youngest member of the Shinsengumi, Heisuke Toudou is an idealistic yet capable Captain. Although the once-dominant police force of the Shinsengumi is now in decline, Toudou is compelled to carry on its legacy. Throughout Edo Blossoms, Toudou struggles to cope with the changes within Shinsengumi and the rise of Imperial Nationalism in Edo. Eventually, he moves beyond his naivety to reconcile his place in the world and his love for Chizuru.
Susumu Yamazaki, a shy and skillful ninja, is well versed as a medic. He works as a member of the Watch and works as the Shinsengumi’s primary medic when not serving the Watch. As Hijikata’s Page, Chizuru is not allowed to leave the house on her own, so Yamazaki is often seen with her heading to the market to grab groceries and medical supplies for the Shinsengumi. His knowledge of medicine helps strengthen his bond with Chizuru.
