The Head of the Petrification Kingdom, or simply the Head ( (とう) (しゅ) Tōshu), was the ruler of the Petrification Kingdom of the "Treasure Island" tribe and father of Soyuz.


As noted by Ginro, he looks nearly the same as his son Soyuz, but with the key difference being that he had hair on his head, a beard, and had no scars.[1]



Not much is known of him, though he was said to have been a kind ruler. He married at some point, having a son.

At one point, he told Kirisame of the usage of the Medusa.

Sometime later, Ibara managed to steal the Medusa and used it to petrify him. Whether this came from a personal vendetta or simply to take control of the island is unknown, the act was witnessed by an infant Soyuz. Despite Ibara's attempts to kill the child, Soyuz was safely sent away to the mainland of Japan. With the Head petrified, Ibara took command of the island.[2]

Treasure Island Arc[]

The Head's true state is discovered by Ginro.[1]

He is smashed by Ibara, but is somehow restored by Yuzuriha on Soyuz’s behalf, thus exposing Ibara's crime to everyone.[3][4]

New America City Arc[]

Unable to be revived, Soyuz apologizes to his father while the Petrification Kingdom welcomes Soyuz after learning of his heritage as the Head's son. With Ibara no longer subjugating power over the island, Soyuz succeeds his father and makes the decision to revive the remaining statues on the island.[5]
