Gon is a minion for Hōgen.
Ginga Densetsu Weed
He discovers Gin, Akame and John in a hut and tries to escape to tell Hōgen of his discovery. However he's captured by Akame and taken to Gin. After he tells that he has worried puppies and wife waiting for him, Gin pities and releases him.
However, Gon runs straight back to Hōgen and reveals their hideout, which causes the captive of Gin. It seems like Gon raised in rank thanks to his discovery as he is later seen ordering the lower soldiers in Hōgen's hideout.
- The kanji in Meishoubu Retsuden/Legendery Battle is 和犬の雑種 and stand for Dog of Japan (+mix). This is just what dogs in Japan were called before they were separated into breeds; the generic Japanese dog before classification (important note: although it's tempting to say it, 'original' dog is an incorrect term for this because it wasn't one breed that many stemmed from, it was a term for the group of dogs before they were separated into small [Shiba], medium [Shikoku], large [Akita] etc).
