Sniper is the sworn enemy of Gin. He tried to kill Gin several times when he was younger and wanted to take over Ou himself. However, Sniper is now handicapped after he got crushed between some stones when he tried to drown the Great Dane, Ben earlier. He has metal legs and a small carriage that helps him walk.

He joins up with Hougen to get revenge on Gin and take over Ou. However, he has not predicted how evil Hougen is and Sniper's stamina is tested when Hougen destroys his carriage and force him to walk on his hard metal legs. He proves his loyalty to Hougen and his strength by killing Kamakiri's minion, Stone.

When Gin escapes Hougen, Sniper kills a similar dog and carries the corpse back to Hougen. The trick works and Sniper is now the only one who knows of Gin's existence. He travels out to kill Gin, but has to return empty-handed. On the way back, meets Weed who wounds him badly.

Sniper disappears for awhile but returns before the final battlea against Hougen. When Tesshin is about to kill Hougen, Sniper jumps in and cuts up Tesshin's stomach with his metal hind legs. He then jumps into a gorge to find and kill Weed. But instead he meets Gin whom he fights. Sniper falls into a hole, that's so deep that only his head is visible. When Weed arrives shortly after, Sniper tries to drag Weed down the hole. However, Sniper loses hold, falls through the hole and drowns in the river below.
