Ginga Densetsu Riki
Tōru lives with his parents in Akita Prefecture.
Tōru complains when his parents decide to give both Yamabuki and Riki to his aunt. He is glad when the family decides to keep Riki after all, but gets a bit annoyed when the puppy starts to whine, calling him a mama's boy.
He makes his last appearance when he comes to look and heal beaten Riki along with his parents.
