Jikaku (持覚) is the old man who used to be Keiun Temple’s head priest. He is the one who gave cigarettes and the prompt to raise his head to Genjo Sanzo , who had begun to lose sight of himself on his wild, life-threatening journey. He was Koumyou and Goudai’s old instructor.
He was easy-going and vague, but his powers and courage, enough to take on a host of attackers, were extraordinary. He had a weakness for saké, cigarettes and women.
