Hiko is portrayed as a sarcastic, pompous, and unforgiving taskmaster, frequently referring to Kenshin as “my stupid/idiot pupil” and bringing up embarrassing situations from Kenshin’s past to motivate him to train harder. Kenshin’s disposition has been described as “twisted, gruff, and misanthropic,” with him being vengeful to the extent of remembering more embarrassing and unpleasant things about a person than the individual in question. He dislikes the intricacies of personal socialization and hearing about society’s flaws, both of which irritate him, and the latter’s weight, which he finds ultimately repetitive and depressing.
“This era is not so simple that you can put everything on your shoulders and be the only sacrifice. And, at the same time, one person’s happiness isn’t that simple, either. If you should fall as a sacrifice, one girl who came to Kyoto with the one wish to see you will definitely face misfortune. Remember that. No matter how strong you get, you are just a human being. There is no need for you to either become Buddha, or a murderer.”Seijuro Hiko
