Character Description: Ryusaku Murasame

Ryuusaku, or "Ryu", was Kenji Murasame's older brother and guardian after the death of their parents in World War II. Ryu was supposed to be one of the Kamikaze Pilots, but fled for unclear reasons. The brothers went to live in Tokyo, adopting Tatsu soon after.

Ryu taught Kenji that weapons were unnecessary, leading to Kenji's self-imposed ban on guns. After Tetsujin landed in Tokyo and accidentally killed Tatsu, Ryu got in a truck with Tatsu's body, drove into Tetsujin, thus knocking him over. Ryu died shortly after that.

He returns as a ghost near the end of the series, encouraging Kenji to not be afraid of guns, so Kenji could take down the PX Syndicate troops.
