- Kazue Souma – A young samurai who distances himself from the Shinsengumi. Souma comes off as series and headstrong. Even with his feelings, Kondou invites him to join the Shinsengum as Chizuru’s first student.
- Hachiro Iba – A samurai from Okuzume, the guards who protect the shogun. He claims he know Chizuru, but the could prove to not be true.
