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 blue eyes and dark brown hair decorated the front as a pompadour. He 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 dailect.

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.


Wave Attack: Ricardo can also unleash the same wave interference attack as the triplets, but all on his own.

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

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.
