John is Gin's best friend. John used to be a hunting dog and owned by the man Hidetoshi, but he joined Gin a long time ago.

After a mission to the Northern Alps, he, Gin and Akame gets trapped by the Great Dane Hougen. John fights the best he can, but is ordered to surrender when Hougen takes the female Reika as a hostage. John manages to escape on Gin's order, but is quickly found again by Hougen's soldiers.

Hougen himself appears and John fights him. Unfortunaly, John is already wounded and cannot win this battle. He gets tortured and left to die in the snow.

Before John takes his last breath, he meets Weed. John tells what has happened and about Hougen. He is fooled by Weed to think that Weed's army has won a final battle against Hougen so that he can die in peace. He then closes his eyes, never to open them again.
