One of the main characters, Hajime Saitoh, was a real person. Saitoh was a swordsman for the Shinsen Gumi throughout the last days of the Bakufu (Shogunate) government and the fighting leading up to the Meiji Restoration. After the defeat of the Shogunate, he did obtain a job in a provincial police organization, where he spent his days before this death near the end of the century.
