Senshi to Doni and Fionil[1]

Senshi (センシ?) is a Dwarf warrior in Laios' Party.

Appearance[]

Senshi is a dwarf with tan skin, long black hair and round black eyes, and possesses a stocky build. He also has a long and ruffled beard, which was initially very dirty (to the point of being resistant to magic) but was later cleaned with assistance from Marcille.[4] Compared to the rest of the group, he has a more cartoonish face, with rounded eyes and a very pronounced nose. His eyes also go slit-eyed when skeptical.[citation needed]

He is almost never seen without his hat, which is a full plated helmet, with horns, two holes at the bottom right, and a "X" scar on the middle. It is noted by Laios Touden that it was somewhat sweaty.[citation needed] Senshi's helmet was once worn by Gillin, his old benefactor.[5][6] Senshi wears this helmet as a memento to him. The "X" scar on the helmet is from when Senshi himself repaired the hole the hippogriff kicked in.[6]

He wears forearm guards that are brown and fluffed. He wears some metal armor on his calf and hip area, with some sandals. The male members of the party also think Senshi is handsome, though only in their memories.[7]

As a child, Senshi had a round face, short curly hair and a relatively lithe build compared to other Dwarves, much to their concern.[5]

Personality[]

Senshi has a very traditional and obstinate personality. Since he has spent ten years learning how to eat monsters in the dungeon he can be very set in his ways, leading to clashes with other party members (especially Marcille and occasionally Chilchuck). However, since they showed interest in eating monsters, he is very happy to share his skills with them.

Senshi can be very careless. He has a savant-like interest in cooking monsters and little else. This leads him to neglect maintenance of his weapons[8] and walk into traps despite being warned of them.

He holds a strong belief in only taking what is needed[9] and giving back to the dungeon what he takes from it[10], and can get frustrated when others do not respect this.[11]

He despises all forms of magic, believing its overuse can lead to one's downfall.[10] He is initially quite stubborn about not using it at all, but eventually accepts essential spells to traverse the dungeon. He becomes unnerved at the presence of resurrection magic, as he says it is unnatural for people to come back from the dead. In other words, he treats magic with a great deal of gravity and caution.

Relationships[]

Laios Touden[]

"He shows promise."

Laios and Senshi share a common interest in the cooking and eating of monsters.[citation needed]

Marcille[]

"Big-headed elf"

Senshi's dislike of magic often puts him at odds with Marcille, the party's magic user. He believes Marcille's use of powerful spells to defeat monsters is destructive to the dungeon's ecosystem, whereas Marcille believes use of said spells is justified as the monsters are actively trying to kill them.[11]

Chilchuck[]

"He's little, but he knows a lot. Impressive boy."

Senshi likes Chilchuck but due to the physiological differences between Half-Foots and Dwarves Senshi has believed for a long while now that Chilchuck is a child who must be protected and taught the ways of the world.

Namari[]

Senshi has little to no respect for his weapons or traditional smithing, much to Namari's chagrin as a fellow dwarf.[8]

Dwarf Miners[]

The group that Senshi was part of as a young dwarf consisted of himself, Brigan, Invar, Noor, Totan and their leader Gillin, as well as their horse Anne.[5][12] Young Senshi saw them all as role models.[13] Senshi sees Brigan as scary, Invar as a hard worker around his age, Noor as a knowledgeable person, Totan as a city guy and Gillin as his sworn big brother.[14] They used to be exasperated by Senshi's carelessness with his weapons.[15]

Trivia[]

  • His favourite food is monster cuisine.[16]
  • His least favourite foods are foods lacking in nutrients.[16]
  • His first cause of death within a dungeon was blood loss due to a Dungeon Rabbit attack.[17]
  • When serving a dish, his catchphrase is "It's done!" ("完成じゃ!" "Kansei ja!"?).[18]
  • His name means "researcher" (in the anime) or "seeker" in Dwarvish.[19]
  • He appears to have the ability to tell the temperature of things by touch. He is also apparently resistant to heat up to at least 180°C.[20]
  • Senshi named the kelpie he befriended "Anne", after the horse previously belonging to the Dwarf Miners.[21][12]
  • Senshi's parents passed away when he was twenty-two. One passed to an accident and the other to an illness. Soon after, Gillin took him in.[22]
  • Due to dwarves having 2.5 times the lifespan of humans, Senshi would be roughly 44-45 years old in terms of modern humans.
  • A recurring joke is that Senshi frequently referring and treating Marcille and Chilchuck as youngsters viewing Laios as the oldest based on their respective looks, even going so far as to explain "The Birds And The Bees" to a mortified Chilchuck. Ironically Marcille is chronologically the oldest of the original party being 50 years old, while Chilchuck is the oldest mentally with his age being equivalent of a man in 40's-50's as well has having three adult daughters.[citation needed]
  • Senshi was invited to live with Laios and the others in Merini's castle but he declined, wishing to explore the country or cross the ocean. He notes that he's not sad to leave as he'll always have a place to return to now.[23]
