Isami Kondou

近藤 勇

Hair: Black Eye: Dark Brown Affiliation: Shisengumi Position in Shinsengumi: Kyoukuchou (the head) Most notable quote: "I'll never forget why we started this. If we have to, we're ready to die anytime." Though he's the Kyoukuchou, he plays a relatively minor role in the series and is often seen to be overruled by Hijikata. He's much more tolerant of the errant Tetsunosuke as well as Souji's childish antics. He is, however, more willing to take risks than Hijikata.
