Hajime Saito

Of all the characters in the show, Hajime Saito was actually based on the real-life historical figure. He was the captain of the 3rd unit of the Shinsengumi and would later become a police officer under the alias of Fujita Goro. His sword technique is more of an offensive one that is highlighted by his signature left-handed sword thrust. He and our main protagonist have history during Kenshin's days as an assassin. Hajime Saito lives by a code of harsh justice that believes that evil must be slain at any cost. The two cross paths again resulted in a deadly duel that almost ended one of them. Since then, he has begrudgingly worked with Kenshin to help thwart various threats to the country's safety and security.
