Manji is a somewhat lazy samurai that is immortal and must kill a thousand men before he can be allowed to die
Rin is the heroine of Blade of the Immortal, along with the titular immortal swordsman Manji.
Member of the Ittō-ryū.
Former member of the Ittō-ryū, she is small in stature but the aggressive individual in the duo of herself and her giant companion, Isaku.
A naturally gifted sword fighter, Makie brought shame upon her family thus driving both she and her mother to prostitution. She fell in love with Anotsu Kagehisa, fought against Manji, but failed to kill him. Her skills were only flawed by her own troubles emotions.
An eight-hundred year old nun (that is also the meaning of her name) who's goal is to save all the lost souls in Japan. She is kept alive by the Bloodworms, which she also bestows to Manji, who doesn't really want them.
Kurose's wife and Rin's mother, after Kurose was murdered, Anotsu's men raped O-Toki and took her away from her daughter. She didn't live long after as Kuroi Sabato killed her and sewed her stuffed head to his shoulder to preserve her beauty forever.
Member of Anotsu's Ittō-ryū, it was he who was given the privilege of killing Rin's father, Kurose. Later he almost managed to best Rin in a twisted suicide love pact he desired but Manji killed him before Rin went through with it. The lumps on his shoulders are the severed heads of two women, their beauty preserved forever.
Kurose's father and Rin's grandfather, his weakness would cause turmoil in his family a few generations down the line.
Kagehisa's grandfather, his lack of class and proper sword technique had him expelled from Asano's school and it would be a grudge that would last in his family for generations. It resulted in his grandson later destroying the school his grandfather had been expelled from and killing everyone who had learned its ways.
Former member of the Mugai-ryu, he is a seriously depraved individual and if you find yourself cheering for him, you should probably check yourself into a mental hospital. One of his favorite past times is mutilating women while he has sex with them and then killing them while still inside because when you die your muscles all tighten up...ooooooh yeah.
Dōa's constant companion, and guardian of sorts. He is a Christian and therefore despite his great size, he is ironically much less aggressive then Dōa.
