Genji Ikusabe (戦部厳至 Ikusabe Genji) is an Alchemist Warrior of the Alchemist Army and member of the Re-Extermination Squad.
Genji Ikusabe has an extreme thirst to fight Homunculi, and is the record-keeper of 'Most Homunculi killed' (332), even more than the number of homunculi killed by Hiwatari and Bravo combined.
Unlike Negoro, Ikusabe cares more about the process of battling than claiming victory, and quit the mission to kill Kazuki when he was defeated by Papillon. In the anime, it is not shown that he eats homunculi, nor does he send Papillon to Kazuki and Gōta. Instead, he falls to the ground after Papillon defeats him.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Ikusabe's powers come from his Buso Renkin, the Jumonji spear Gekisen's recovery ability, his special ability and habit to eat remains of Homunculi he's killed to increase his power and stamina, and the times he can use the recovery ability.
His Buso Renkin is Kakugane XII, Gekisen (激戦?, lit."Intense War"), a Jumonji spear (cross-like spear) that can heal any wound of its holder. The spear is even capable of reviving Ikusabe even if Ikusabe's body is blown to pieces. However, Gekisen's flaw is that since it recovers automatically and at a high speed, if something gets caught into where one of Ikusabe's body parts should be, the recovery will fail. If Ikusabe is separated from his spear, then the weapon cannot heal him.
- According to Nobuhiro Watsuki:
- He likes winning battles and losing battles.
- He dislikes a peaceful life, sneak attacks and trickery.
- His hobby is studying military history.
- His special ability eating Homunculi.
- He has a close resemblance to Seijuro Hiko from.Rurouni Kenshin.
