Benimaru received a kimono that turned blood red to match his aura.
Benimaru has a carefree personality. His personality is that of an excited and confident man. Although his personality is easily excited, he is actually really cautious and cunning.
Benimaru felt hesitant when faced with the need to take over the Ogre tribe village chief. Thus, he is content with his current position with Rimuru as the Lord he serves. As one of the military commander, he merely wishes to rampage to his heart’s content. Had he become chief, he could not ride off to battle thus. But now was different. He can participate without any concern.
As the young master of the ogre village, Benimaru would have taken up the weight and responsibility of a leader had ten thousand Orcs not invaded his town and slaughtered all but six ogres.
Escaping the disaster, he runs into Rimuru. With the turn of fate, he pledges his loyalty to Rimuru after witnessing his lord’s benevolence and promise of retribution.
