Kinro ( (キン) (ロー) Kinrō?) is the elder brother of Ginro and the son of Tetsuken and Shirogane. Serving as one half of the village guard, he technically allies himself with Senku and company once Ginro gets more involved in their schemes.

Appearance

Kinro is a muscular man of average height. He has a scar on the right side of his face and a cluster of hair hanging in between his eyes.

He wears a sleeveless karate gi-like uniform with a belt. On his back, he wears a buckler with a star pattern.

Personality

Kinro is the no-nonsense half of the two guard brothers, taking his job seriously and not being as easily distracted as Ginro. However, he has been shown to lose his composure a few times, such as when Senku blew bubbles upon meeting him.

He appears to be secretive about his problems, as no one realized he had "blurry eye disease" for a long time.

Abilities and Skills

Physical Abilities

Kinro seems physically stronger than most of the village, possibly only rivaled by Magma and Kohaku.

Equipment

Kinro wields a primitive-looking spear and a buckler. The blade of the spear became golden, after Senku applied mercury with gold dust on it. He also has one pair of eye glasses.

History

Kinro was born into Ishigami Village and at some point took up the role as guard with his brother.

Kinro see with his first custom glasses. chapter 47 page 9

Plot

Kinro is first introduced alongside Ginro, blocking Kohaku and Senku from entry into the village due to their policy on outsiders. Senku, unamused by this, blows bubbles with a bar of soap, causing the two of them to freak out until Chrome explains what's going on.

Suika eventually deduces Kinro has "blurry eye disease", prompting her to throw her hat to him so he can see during his tournament fight. However, due to him being strictly by the rules, when asking for clarification on whether the melon helmet disqualified him, Magma struck him from behind and knocked him out.

Trivia

  • Kinro's name can be translated as "golden wolf". This ties into Ginro's name, which means "silver wolf".
  • His name contains the kanji for Gold ( Kin?) and Wolf ( ?) and put together mean Gold Wolf, in keeping with the fact that all other members of Ishigami village have names referencing metals and crystals. His being the reference to the chemical element Gold, its elemental symbol is Au and atomic number is 79.
