Ricardo Welkin (リカード・ウェルキン) is one of Anastasia Hoshin's followers and the captain of mercenary group Fang of Iron.


Ricardo has green eyes and dark brown hair decorated the front as a pompadour. He also has two large tusks hanging on the sides of his mouth. Ricardo has a muscular build and wears a black pants, black wrist guards, and white wrappings in his dark colored clothes. He also wears a shoulder guard that has a logo, represents the Hoshin Trading Company.

In Anastasia's flashback of the manga, Ricardo legs are covered in a white wrapping on his ankles and wears waraji on his feet.


Ricardo is occasionally outgoing, he talks in a loud voice like a heavy wind blowing. As the captain of the Fang of Iron, he usually calms his teammates down right before battling, such as making jokes to make others laugh. Like Anastasia, Ricardo speaks with a Kansai dialect.

Ricardo also tends to be rash and due to his habit of heading straight into battle, he usually listens to Hetaro's orders while in battle.


Ricardo was formally a slave until the collar was removed and freed by Anastasia, but he deliberately keeps his slave collar.


Resonance Wave: Ricardo unleashes burst of a violent destructive mana from his mouth. Unlike the Pealbaton triplets, he can do it all on his own.

Physical Fighter: Ricardo mainly fights hand to hand using both instinct and intuition honed over many years.

Ricardo's Sword

Equipment: Ricardo wields a large cleaver-like sword.

Liger Anime

Liger: Ricardo and the members of the Fang of Iron ride on large grey wolves called Ligers. Although they are similar to Earth Dragons, Ligers lack strength, but they are more agile and have higher speed. They have a high chance of winning if they were to fight in a melee combat.
