Lifetime Mending Era

Satoru Umezawa is a human ninja and leader of the Hyozan Reckoners. He is part of the Clan Umezawa that is still in Kamigawa.


He has bright tattoos up to the bottom of his ears. His black hair is wound in a tight bun and metal armor is latched strategically across his chest and arms, with windowed panels across his shoulders and stomach that show off his colorful markings. A gas mask hangs from his neck, neon green with painted blue swirls, making it look like the jaws of a monster.[1]


Satoru Umezawa is the ruthless leader of the Hyozan Reckoners, the largest and most well-known Reckoner gang on Kamigawa. Under his rule, the Hyozan Reckoners have grown bolder and more daring in their activities, sometimes even going so far as to attack Imperial patrols in their territory. Satoru is infamous for having once exterminated the family of another rival Reckoner who was thinking about challenging him, just to send a message. He claims to be a descendant of the fabled Toshiro Umezawa, a claim that no one has ever been able to verify, but that no one dares question, either.[2]

Neon Dynasty[]

Before becoming a planeswalker, Kaito Shizuki participated as a member of the Hyozan Reckoners in an attempt to gain information about the Emperor's whereabouts. It is Satoru who gives Kaito the mission to steal information about the technology that Tameshi has been developing. Suspicious of Kaito's loyalty, Satoru sends his henchmen to follow him.[1]
