Yamamoto is an elderly veteran with a long military service. He reigns supreme over the Thirteen Court Guard Squads. He is very solemn and calm, but rules over the squads with an iron fist. Although he is old, Yamamoto has a rock hard body and unparalleled skills.
One unusual fact that seems a bit out of character is the hosting of monthly tea ceremonies that he enjoys as a hobby. On a similar note; Yamamoto grooms his own beard, trimming the ends every month.
Yamamoto's Assistant Captain is Chojiro Sasakibe.
