Utsuro is the overall main antagonist of the Gintama anime/manga series. He is the founder and first leader of the Tenshouin Naraku before Oboro took his position. He is the original identity and self of Yoshida Shouyou and now part of the Tendoshu.

Description

Appearance

Utsuro is usually shown wearing a dark-green cape with feathers on the shoulders and the mask of the Yatagarasu. In contrast to Shouyou, he's wearing his hair laid back and has red eyes filled with emptiness. Just like all Naraku assassins, he's carrying a shakujō with a hidden blade inside. The tsuba of his blade has the form of the manji.

Personality

Utsuro is a very remorseless, fearsome, cruel and sadistic psychopath who lacks empathy and compassion. Utsuro loves death, agony, and destruction, as he shows enjoyment of killing people and annihilating entire villages for no reason.

Goals

Utsuro's one true goal is to end his inmortality by destroying the world and turn the universe into nothingness.
