Afro (アフロ, Afuro), or better known as Afro Samurai (アフロサムライ, Afuro Samurai) is the main protagonist of the Afro Samurai series.
Afro is an incredibly talented swordsman whose father was decapitated in front of his own eyes as a child. That traumatic experience caused an innocent little boy to have a mind flustered with revenge and, with that, Afro grew into a cold-blooded killer, spilling the bloods of countless souls in his wake.
As the number two, Afro has killed many in defense and revenge for the ultimate goal of avenging his father.
