Maruge was a commander from Soukai.
Maruge was a middle-aged man with dark hair. He has a mustache and a goatee. He also wears expensive clothes and a hat.
Maruge was a cowardly man who always tries to be at the safest possible place on the battlefield and prefers avoiding combat whenever possible. He is also henpecked by both his wife and his mother-in-law. After his wife dies and the war has ended, he wants to live a long life surrounded by four beautiful women.
Maruge convinced Shion of his plan to send an army to Mt. Kageboushi. He thought that he would be safe on the mountain. However, his army was attacked by Yomihime's army right after they arrived at Mt. Kageboushi.
