Kenzan Takakura (高倉 剣山 Takakura Kenzan?) is the husband of Chiemi Takakura and the father of Kanba Takakura, Shōma Takakura and Himari Takakura.


An archtypical father figure as he is strong-minded, determined and very protective of his family.


Kanba Takakura[]

Kenzan pays a special interest in his son Kanba. He relies on him to follow his example, acting like a father with Himari and Shoma. He also educated him on his own ideals and vision of the world.


  • Spoilers ahead

Kenzan was a member of the 36th Antarctic Environmental Defense Team which later became Penguinforce, of which he was the first leader.

On March 20th, 1995, he led the Penguinforce bombings. The same day, his wife Chiemi gave birth to Shouma Takakura.

He later became the adoptive father of Kanba Takakura, the son of a fellow Penguinforce member, and Himari Takakura. He and his wife and children settled down in a small house where they lived peacefully.

However, later on, the authorities came after him and his wife for their role in the Penguinforce bombings. Abandoning the children, the two of them went into hiding.

While working for Kiga Group, Kanba appeared to see him. However, this was just a hallucination- the real Kenzan had died years ago.


  • The name Kenzan means "healthy, strong" (剣) (ken) and "mountain, hill" (山) (zan).
  • Kenzan's surname Takakura means "tall, high" (高) (taka) and "warehouse" (倉) (kura).


  • Kenzan's attack parallels the Tokyo subway sarin attack, as they both targeted the Tokyo subway systems on March 20, 1995 by planting bombs and detonating them. However, it did not seem to be a religiously motivated attack like the one done in real life.
