Person of interest: Magdaria
Personality: Stubborn, acts before he thinks, because of his idea that he
can defeat anyone, he still ends up losing the fight and embarrased himself silly.
He joined the Sekihoutai group when he was a small boy. He admired Captain Sagara so much
that he took the Captain's name as his own.
When the Meiji government won the battle. Because they could not fulfill their promise to
the people, they made false accusation to the Sekihoutai, treated them as traitors and
massacred the whole troop. When Captain Sagara was gunned down but he was able to save
Sano by throwing him to the river. Later when Sano came upon the town square he saw the
Captain's head displayed there. Sano still retains his hatred toward the Meiji government.
It was Magdaria
who captured his heart, however she didn't live long enough. His friendship with Kenshin
is sometimes confusing since he's torn between the loyalty of his friends and Captain
Sagara. He's the most comical character in the series especially when he comes across
Saitoh and Chou.
