The Elder is the oldest dog and leader of Tomon's pack.
Karadaki no Tomon
The Elder works as the leader of the pack. He is a wise dog but rude and irresponsible youngsters (especially Toshi) make him angry.
He is starting to get ill and weak from age and once he almost faints while speaking to his pack. Little Hiromu drags him to shade to rest.
Tomon starts to gain more and more responsibility as the leader because the Elder is too weak.
The Elder warns his pack to not to touch the human property because the angry humans could kill them all if they wanted.
