Aditional Info:

Jin is of noble heritage and spent the vast majority of his life training in kenjutsu dojos. Unlike Mugen, it is legal for him to carry a daisho (two matching swords: a katana and a wakizashi), as he is of the samurai class. His swords have a lightning and twin-eyed design on the tsuba. He wears traditional hakama and gi in indigo blue patterned with a white diamond kamon made up of smaller white diamonds. (This closely resembles the kamon of the great Takeda Clan, leading to speculation about his family origins.) He also sports a Buddhist rosary and a pair of anachronistic wire-rimmed glasses (which he does not actually need), the latter of which is probably the single most distinctive aspect of his appearance and the one everybody remembers. Jin is usually taciturn and unusually collected. He is an extremely skilled swordsman, using swift, refined, orthodox moves of the Mujushin Kenjutsu discipline, making him the perfect foil for Mugen. Like Mugen, he needs not rely solely on his sword. In one scene, he falls back on jujutsu techniques, disarming and incapacitating at least six armed samurai before getting his daisho back. His dedication to the sword is so intense that he seems to lack abilities in other areas like holding his liquor, playing the shamisen, cooking eel and fishing. As a testament to his intelligence and unwillingness to readily trust others, he usually is the first to suspect when someone is not who they seem.

When he was 18, he was to be assassinated in his sleep by his sensei, Mariya Enshirou, at Kariya Kagetoki's insistence. Jin killed Mariya in self-defense, to his horror. He fled the dojo, becoming a ronin. His death is sought by many, including former classmates and not limited to fame seekers. Mujushin was a real sword-fighting dojo, and Mariya Enshirou is known to have been the third master—although the circumstances of his death are unclear. The esoteric teachings of Mujushin become vitally important in the series finale. Jin is highly devoted to upholding Bushido and is in fact named after jin (benevolence), one of the seven samurai virtues.

In the last episode, he confesses to both Fuu and Kariya that he has spent his entire life with no devotion to anyone. He lived only for his sword, and no master; saying that the lords of that time have no sense of honor, only self-preservation. But he seems to change during his travels with Fuu and Mugen, saying that they are his "first friends."

Fuu is the leading lady of the show, a fifteen-year-old girl of samurai lineage, but brought up in poverty. After a not-so-successful stint as a teahouse waitress, she saves Mugen and Jin from execution and forces them to help her on a quest. She is searching for the Samurai who smells of Sunflowers, but never explains what a sunflower smells like or what the man looks like. Mugen and Jin are often reminded of their life-debt to her when they wish to fight each other, much to their chagrin. Without her father around to support them, Fuu and her mother led a difficult life until her mother died of illness.

She is a surprisingly big eater, has a bright and trusting personality, and is strongly prone to accidents and trouble although she is quite practical. She often puts on a front of being more worldly and experienced than she actually is so as not to appear completely ingenuous in front of her bodyguards. Fuu wears a deep pink kimono with a pattern of flowers and carries a matching tanto (which she never uses, but has brandished once or twice). Attached to the tanto are a skull (a Christian pendant from her father), a pair of dice (probably referencing her dice-rolling skills in "Hellhounds for Hire") and a dog. A flying squirrel by the name of "Mo-mo" (evidently short for "momonga," which means "flying squirrel" in Japanese) inhabits her clothing and frequently helps out when she's in trouble. Momo also means "Peach" in Japanese, and is a popular modern pet name in Japan.

A running gag throughout the show is Fuu becoming impossibly huge after overeating, reverting to ordinary form after her stomach has digested everything.

Mugen:Mugen has a tendency to parry attacks with the steel base of his geta. He and Jin fight from time to time, but there is an undercurrent of mutual understanding between the two. Mugen’s Japanese is quite rough and "Yanki"; he is illiterate until later in the show. The blue tattoos on his wrists and ankles indicate that he was once in prison. The circumstances of his imprisonment, and whether he escaped or emigrated legally, are unclear at first. It is later verified that he was to be executed for engaging in piracy. He was presumed dead when he plunged into the ocean. He survived.
