Takechi was born into the same situation as his sworn brother, Ryoma, who he has protected since they were young. The two were discovered by Yoshida Toyo, the most influential man in Tosa, and raised under his wing. His skill with the sword is on par with Ryoma, who is famed to be the strongest in Tosa. Many members of the Tosa Loyalist Party joined because they admire Takechi.



Takechi and Ryoma trust each other deeply. When Ryoma returns from Edo, Takechi invites him to the Tosa Loyalist Party and entrusts him with the position of “Party Representative”, second-in-command of the party. However, the two go their separate ways due to the death of their foster father, Yoshida Toyo.
