Ikoma (生駒, Ikoma) is the main protagonist and a young steam smith who formerly made a living in Aragane Station working with steam engines. He and his friend Takumi developed a steam weapon called "Tsuranuki Zutsu" which Ikoma believes is the best way to fully destroy a Kabane. However, during a Kabane attack on Aragane Station, he got bitten and was forced to use metal (bolted into his body) in order to control where the infection occurred. Fortunately, Ikoma was fast enough for one part of his body not to be affected (his brain) and so he became Kabaneri. Boarding the Koutetsujou in hopes of arriving at Kongoukaku to investigate the Kabane.
