Hijikata Toshizou, the vice-commander of the Shinsengumi, a volunteer independent unit of roshi (or ronin) mostly of peasants’ origins, who faithfully served the shogun in the tumultuous years (1863-1869) leading to the Meiji restoration and gave up his life at the early age of 35 (34 depending on whose calender your’re using to count his age), refusing to retreat in the last battle with the Imperial forces.
