He's a small soldier in an armor. His face is constantly covered by a helmet.
Shou Taku seem to have a friendship with Kyuu Kou as they are often seen chatting together.
Shou Taku originally served in Ou Sen Army together with the rest of Kan Jou Unit. Half a year before Chiyoyou Campaign they were transfered to Gyoku Hou Unit.
On the third day, of the Simultaneous Battle Plan, Kyuu Kou pointed out to Kan Jou that an all-out brawl wasn't their forte. Shou Taku agreed with him, stating the Kan Jou Unit's tactics had always been "hit and run." Kan Jou told them to quit complaining because that was the Gyoku Hou's way of doing things. Kyuu Kou then asked if he meant letting themselves take it easy at the back.
Swordsmanship: Shou Taku is a very capable fighter and could be listed as a reliable heavy-weight of Kan Jou's unit. During the Battle at Shukai Plains, he even managed to slay the leader of the Ten Spears.
