Better known as Umibozu(海坊主), he is another "sweeper" working the rounds in Tokyo.
Personality & AppearanceEdit
A skinhead who is a tall and large individual with muscular physique and is usually seen in an olive green military uniform and black shade. Despite his fearsome appearance, he has a phobia of cats, especially kittens and is extremely shy with women( he is often blushing).
He and Ryo have a history dating back to the civil war in Central America and goes by the professional name Falcon, while his real name is Hayato Ijuin(伊集院 隼人) (borrowed from Hayato Ichimonji). His nickname Umibozu was given by Ryo. In the later part of the manga, he loses his sight after his optic nerve was injured and became the shopowner of "Cat's Eye Cafe", though much of his skills still remain.
Umibozu also appears in Angel Heart, a work based on a parallel world of 'City Hunter'. Proceed here to learn more about it.
As a mercenary, he is well adept with laying traps and guerilla tactics and seems to be skillful in many other aspects of things as well. As a sweeper, his level is nearly on par with Ryo.
Weapons & TransportEdit
His choice of weapons are heavy weapons like the bazooka, German MG42 and Stielhandgranate 24, but he likes the Smith & Wesson Model 29 six-shot, double-action revolver, which he would choose should there be a duel with Ryo.
They share a kind of frenemy relationship. As partners, they have joined hands in many cases for the jobs in Japan. In the later part of the manga, though Umibozu was being robbed of his sight by Ryo in an incident, he held no ill-feelings for Ryo and merely accepted it as a Cause & Effect of a conflict.
