He is caught and is thrown into jail with Kenshiro at the start of the series. After revealing Rin's past to Kenshiro, he respects the wanderer as his older brother figure and follows him. He uses his mechanical expertise and mischievous pranks to sometimes aid their journey.
He matures as he travels with Kenshiro and eventually becomes a respectable freedom fighter who opposes the tyrannical Celestial Emperor army. In memory of Kenshiro, Bat and Rin dub their group the Hokuto army. As he ages, he falls in love with Rin.
