Gou is a pure white male Akita Inu with a muscular build, seemingly a result of hunting and fighting in the countryside of his birth place. There is a tint of light red on the tip of his ears and underneath his eyes. Akitas are large dogs with a strong constitution, balanced and capable of carrying out the work of a large specimen, Gou presents this characteristics. He is also slightly longer than he is tall, and has a wide, deep chest and a leveled back. His countenance is serious and mature, he normally holds a scowl and rarely softens his expression. His eyes are caramel brown. Finally, Gou's whole body is covered in deep scars. On his face, two of them are parallel and run down his cheeks. There's another two small ones on his forehead, next to his ear and one small nick on his lips.

Attire - He wears a thick braided rope around his neck (shimenawa) with a wooden talisman called tsuko tegata that has a small graven of his homeland next to some signatures in Japanese.

Scents - Gou smells like moist dirt and green tea.

Nicknames - Inugami, White demon, Goo, Glue, Play-gouh, Tochi, Little moon

Voice claim - Genichiro Ashina from Sekiro: Shadows die twice (English dub)

Personality

Summary - Gou is incredibly kind and valorous, and has a strong sense of honor and loyalty, not to mention the passion he puts into almost anything he does, but don't mistake his kindness for weakness. He's recognized for being unstoppable in a fight. When he has identified an enemy, he fights to kill and aims for the quickest, most brutal way to do so. Arguably the only thing Gou is better at than destroying thugs in a bloody combat is being a Caretaker. Nothing brings out the best in Gou like pups. Nothing brings out THE WORST in Gou like hurting one of the pups. Gou generally lets his actions and mannerisms speak for him when possible. He is the type of canine to give a response to his environment rather than seeking out conversations. He often tries to take the higher route whenever he can, but sometimes it backfires, and ends up getting him seriously injured, causing others to question his judgment. He also tends to get into fights when completely unnecessary in a refusal to back down from a challenge. Gou is disposed to go out of his way to help others and is accepting of anyone who is friendly towards him as long as he doesn't suspect foul play.

He is first portrayed as hostile and violent. However, despite his stoicism, Gou posses a softer side that he himself was largely unaware of. He normally means well for those around him, which makes him surprisingly pragmatic and well-liked. Gou tends to open up significantly around those he is comfortable with.

Caretaker - He's undeniably rough, but he's definitely got a soft spot for human kids and pups alike, and doesn't feel embarrassed about partaking in certain activities geared towards them. A role he considers his true calling in life.

Berserker mode - Gou will enter a berserker-like state whenever he is pushed too far during a fight. His autonomic nervous system is disturbed if he ever takes a large amount of hits, making him to lose control of his bodily functions and driving Gou to become extremely violent and dangerous.

Rival of the Ookami - Gou is known to feel certain hatred towards wolves and foxes due to past conflicts involving them. One of his main goals is to defeat a wolf. However, after several fights with different characters, Gou always ends losing the brutal encounter.

Nonetheless, Gou is not a show dog and his owners never intended to put him in competitions unlike the rest of his relatives. He was sent far away from the city to the countryside, where he lives with a large family and protects the fields from wild animals that came down from the mountain. He rarely thinks about his biological family, and considers his mentor Yama and the humans he lives with as his real family.

BACKGROUND

ABOUT THE AKITA

The Akita is a Japanese breed named after the mountainous, northern province where it originated. Legend has it that 500 years ago the Japanese Emperor decided to create a new type of dog breed in order to hunt down the Yezo bear that overrun the islands. Akitas were created from combining two types of wolf, an ancestor to the modern Mastiff, a Japanese spitz, as well as several other breeds. Resulting in these giant dogs that closely resemble the bears that they were bred to hunt. The black mask pinto Akita especially look like an adolescent Yezo bear, most likely this is not a coincidence.

The Emperor was so taken with these dogs that he decreed from that day forth that each of his Samurai warriors was to keep his dogs. It is said that for five centuries this amazing dog became an integral part of Imperial Samurai culture, and only Emperor’s Samurai were allowed to keep them.

Whether or not they were bred by samurai, one thing is certain, they act like the samurai that may have bred them. They are fearless, and their loyalty is unparalleled. In fact legend has it that the Imperial Samurai were so enamored with these dogs that they actually believed that if one them died dishonorably, sometimes he would be given a second chance by being born into the body of an Akita, so he could have the opportunity to die defending the life of his master, thus regaining his honor. It is easy to see where this myth originated when you have had the chance to know one of these dogs. They are so human, and noble, it is easy to believe that the spirit of the Samurai dwells within them.

White Demon

Gou was born in Akita prefecture, during Spring. His mother said that day the cherry blossoms were twice as as beautiful. It was her third litter from the unbroken lineage of pure breed Akitas that the descents of the Ashina Clan bred.

Gou and his brothers and sisters were gifted to other high class people in Kakunodate, which was firstly a castle town under the Ashina Clan from around 1620 in the Edo period. Today it is known as the Tamachi Bukeyashiki Street, the samurai residence district, where a few descendant families from the warriors live. Unlike his brothers and sisters who became important show dogs, Gou was sent to a much farther place, away from the city, the mountains of Kazuno Towada-Hachimantai. He was entrusted to a family of farmers in a secluded village.

Training began very early with the help of a retired Meikken Yokozuna champion Tosa Inu, called Yama, who'd mentor Gou at a very early age, and soon he would become a hunter and a watchdog, going after wild animals that would often trespass the fields. He quickly adapted to the mountains and the forest. His most brutal fight happened to be with a medium sized bear, Gou nearly died but he managed to kill off the bear. That day he received a special treat from his master. Gou was treated with a lot of love and respect for guarding the family and the village. The village gave Gou the nickname "White Demon" for his combat and hunting skills.

Abilities

Summary - As a former watchdog and hunter, Gou is proficient in combat with larger animals and predators. Gou looks for the most efficient way of ending his opponent, often very violently while disregarding the wounds he suffers at the same time. He has an incredible tolerance of pain. His fighting style is generally fairly straightforward and no-frills, but he also includes large swings, chokes, and skin rupture. Not only can he withstand a lot of punishment, but he hits like a truck, and can move incredibly fast. He also makes a creative use of his environment. Gou has an indomitable spirit when he fights, but he yearns for a life without more blood shedding and cruelty, so he's taken the route of a Caretaker to bring out his paternal instincts that he once portrayed with the human kids before they disappeared.

Trivia

· He likes to eat anything prepared with rice but his favorite dish is Ohagi, which is a sweet cake made with glutinous rice and azuki (red bean paste).

· The tsuko tegata tied to the rope around his neck was used during the Edo period as a passport.
