Tetsuo is one of the sons of Jerome and Lydia born at the end of the Ginga Densetsu Weed manga, in the Futago Pass during the beginning of Autumn. When Monsoon attacks Ōu, Tonov, Sunny and Maru are the only survivors of the litter. 


He has the same fur color as his mother, Lydia.

Ginga Densetsu Weed

Tetsuo was born in the early autumn, three days after Weed and Koyuki's puppies were born.

Tetsuo as puppy

When a volcano erupts in Ōu, the dogs are forced to flee. Tetsuo is too small to run fast enough and is carried by the Ōu army to safety but they pass out from the smoke and ash in the air. Kurohabaki Jinemon finds them and takes them to an abandoned mine where he locks them up. Tetsuo and the others are later released by Daisuke who acquires the key from Jinemon.

Ginga: The Last Wars

A few months have passed in Ōu when the son of Akakabuto, Monsoon, attacks the Ōu Army intending to kill them all and take back his father's land. His brother, Lenov, is crushed and killed by one of the bears. Tetsuo and his brother Akira try to help their brother but both are slashed and instantly killed by the bears.
