Great General Budo (ブドー大将軍, Budō Daishogun) was one of The Empire's most feared and well-respected generals, as well as leading the Imperial Guard, the force in charge of protecting the palace. Noted for his immense strength and all-round battle prowess, he commanded a great deal of respect from his subordinates and other factions alike.
Budo was a tall muscular man with spiky blond hair and blue eyes. He wore a dark gray suit of armor with his Teigu Adramelech, white pants and a red cloak. His shoulder guards were notably large and have yellow tomoe markings on them.
Described as a man who rarely leaves the imperial training grounds, General Budo was a hardened man, with years of training and military hardship shaping him to his current state. As a general born from a celebrated lineage, Budo took great pride in his honor, and that of the empire. Unlike most generals, he didn't affiliate himself with the Prime Minister, instead downright detesting him. He even went on to state that once the rebels would be crushed, those who caused chaos in the country would incur his "wrath".
