Kenshirou Yozakura 「四桜 犬士郎」 is a supporting character of the anime and web manga series. He is a guard in charge of supervising Building 4 of Nanba Prison.
He has short white hair in a flared out bob in the back with a long tightly-curled ponytail at the bottom. He has long white eyelashes and cherry blossom pink eyes. He wears the standard guard uniform with slight modifications; He dons a pink haori with sakura patterns on his shoulders and the emblem on his hat is a sakura blossom. He also wears the standards white gloves and a red armband which has the number four on it to represent the building he is in charge of. A black eyepatch covers his right eye and a fang sticks out downward from the left side of his mouth.
He has a cool and collected personality but seems to be confident in his abilities. He can be rather cold at times as he complimented Kiji Mitsuba's abilities but calls him a rotten guard.
He seems to have a one-sided rivalry with Hajime Sugoroku due to the fact that Warden Hyakushiki has a crush on Hajime. Kenshirou has feelings towards her and hopes to gain her acknowledgement by defeating him. Kenshirou also gets jealous of him due to the amount of affection the warden has for him. He also gets upset at the fact that Samon often gets stroked on the head by the warden because Samon was shorter than her, mumbling about why did he grow taller than the warden when he was with Musashi.
He also gets fascinated by a small doll of the warden, finding it extremely beautiful, but gets conflicted when Mitsuru says it was for ¥10,000.
He stated that before he became a guard at Nanba, he worked with the police force in Japan, but left after many of the reports he filed relating to Musashi and Jyugo's cases were rejected. He later became a correctional officer and worked his way up to become Supervisor of Building 4 at Nanba Prison.
