Itou Kashitaro, known as Kashitaro Itou in the localization, is an antagonist in Hakuōki. He is a temporary member of the Shinsengumi and the eventual founder of the Guardians of the Imperial Tomb. In Hakuōki: Kyoto Winds, he is Miki Saburo's elder brother.

Personality Edit

Itou is subtle, but treacherous. He knows how to employ flattery, and uses it to gain Kondou's trust. However, he also uses this skill to offer backhanded compliments, especially to Sanan, in order to undermine his colleagues. A renowned intellectual, Itou tends to think of himself as more educated and cultured than the rest of the Shinsengumi's officers. However, he rarely brags about his own accomplishments, preferring to put others down by comparison instead.

Background Edit

Itou Kashitaro is based on the historical figure of the same name, Itou Kashitarou.
