After Ibara's defeat, Soyuz claimed his rightful place as the leader of the Petrification Kingdom, enlisting Kirisame as his replacement within the Kingdom of Science’s ranks.

Appearance

Soyuz is a young man, with a bald head, muscular build, large round eyes and a distinct cross-shaped scar on top of his head.

Personality

Soyuz is a quiet and reserved man living in Ishigami VIllage. He is rather shy when it comes to women, incapable of resisting the charms of Amaryllis, and becoming incredibly flustered around Kohaku when she changes.

Being royalty himself, he has his father's kindness and wisdom, a natural leader just like him.

Like most stone world humans, Soyuz is very amazed by modern items such as de-petrification, breathing underwater with the scuba gear, drones, and other things.

Abilities and Skills

Photographic Memory

Soyuz possesses an incredible memory, able to remember things from even when he was a baby. When searching for the petrified people who fell into the sea, he was able to remember where the people were thrown from and the way they were moved by the currents, implying he has a photographic memory. He also managed to memorize the formula of the Revival Fluid in a short amount of time. It is later revealed that this is because he inherited his mother's great memory.

History

The young woman saving Soyuz.png

Little known about Soyuz’s childhood life, he was a child of the leader of the Petrification Kingdom.

During Ibara’s hostile takeover on his home kingdom, he made an attempt to kill the infant Soyuz, however, the said infant was saved by a young woman who was loyal to his father and ended up being framed by Ibara as a kidnapper attempting to kidnap Soyuz. Thanks to the woman's sacrifice, Soyuz ended up in Ishigami Village safely.[6][1]

While growing up, Soyuz often had dreams of another tribe and tried to sail there but the weather often forced him back to Japan. [7]

Plot

Age of Exploration Arc

He is selected to be apart of the crew of the Perseus, Ryusui notes that he doesn't have a name.

Treasure Island Arc

During the voyage to Treasure Island, he reveals his name to the others and tells them that he was actually from outside Ishigami Village, having drifted there when he was a baby. [6]

After Senku realizes there is another human tribe, Soyuz notes they are his people and where he came from. He is excited by this news, always feeling that he feel like an outsider but is worried when Chrome bring up the possibility of the enemy Whyman being a member of the tribe. Kokuyo questions him in withholding this information until stopping after seeing it was hard on him. Kokuyo and Kohaku then tell him that he has a place in the Kingdom of Science, to his relief. Soyuz is then excited to hear they will reach Treasure Island in a few hours. After a long journey they finally reach the island. Seeing his homeland for the first time in years, he breaks down in tears of joy. [7]

After reaching the island, Soyuz is part of the scouting squad with Senku, Kohaku, and Gen. Since he is a native they use him as a guide and he promises to use his memory to the best of his ability. Once disembarking the group travel the island until Kohaku reveals that she saw a flash from the direction of the ship. While Senku and Kohaku go off, Soyuz and Gen stay back and attempt to call the Perseus who were strangely unresponsive. Curious, Soyuz tries to contact the Perseus but received no answer. Using his telescope, he goes to look at the ship but drops the telescope in fear when seeing the crewmembers petrified.[8]

The two alert Senku and Kohaku of this. When Kohaku tries to attack the new enemy, Soyuz watches Gen stop Kohaku. He notes that seeing the others petrified brought back traumatic memories and the enemy has a device capable of petrifying them. Gen notes on how he had a good memory, despite being a baby. After the group created a microscope, they decide to befriend the female resident of the island to have a way of bringing down the enemy. Following the trail that the woman left they find her being proposed to by other men. While the others are confused by what they are seeing, Soyuz notes on how she is cute. [9]

The group continue to watch the woman revealed to be Amaryllis. They watch as she rejected her suitors while Soyuz is taken by her. The group briefly wonder how to talk to her until Senku abruptly speaks to her. When Amaryllis takes note of Soyuz, she believed Soyuz to be the island leader because of a supposed resemblance. She uses her charms on him and he is taking until she learns he is not the head. Amaryllis is then shocked to see Senku is not all fazed by her beauty. When the members of her village starts to riot the kingdom of science uses teargas to stop them. This display amazes Amaryllis who soon allies with them.[10]

Afterward, they learn of Amaryllis' history and plan to infiltrate the harem, they realize she needs help to do so. Soyuz was shocked to realized that Kohaku was needed to do so. He was worried about the plan because of her tomboyish nature and lack of etiquette. [11]

Soon they witnessed Ibara and his men storming the Perseus. When Kohaku yelled the word lab, Soyuz realized that only someone from the Kingdom of Science would know that word and believe she was trying to find a survivor.[12]Surely enough one of the survivors turned out to be Ginro. Soyuz was disappointed that it was him along with the others, especially when he begs them for help. However, Ginro with help from Suika were able to reclaim the mobile lab and sneak by the enemies who mistake it for an animal.[13][14]

Soyuz and Ryusui conduct the rescue mission

He aids in the construction of the oxygen tanks and they are complete after several hours. When they are done, he is amazed to actually breathe underwater. He and Ryusui look for their petrified cremates who were thrown into the ocean. With his exceptional memory and help from a depetrified Taiju, they manage to find all the people who were tossed into the ocean, though Soyuz was amazed by Taiju doing it it single-handedly before offering him a ride in the boat. [15][16][17]

He helps Yuzuriha Ogawa repair the broken statues, using his memory to distinguish them. When a frantic Amaryllis reports on her experience, Soyuz is shocked to hear he might be related to the original leader. [18]

When Mozu approached, Soyuz witnesses Gen bargaining with Mozu. After he escorts the warrior out, he joins in congratulating the mentalist when he is successful.[19]

The group then decide to split into groups with one deciding to show the whole petrification kingdom the true state of the head. However they discovered that his statue was already destroyed by the evil minister but Yuzuriha planned to recreate the statue. While doing so, he finally recalls his memory of him while become happy at finally reuniting with his father.[20]

They eventually succeed but Soyuz is disappointed to hear that his father can't be revived because he is missing pieces. [21]

Soyuz aids the others in getting the word of the Head of Petrification Kingdom being a statue out to the others. [22]

He notices Oarashi running in a frenzy and realizes he plans to head to the island's center and Ukyo has Taiju yell to the others on this. After Taiju tackles him, they are warned by Amaryllis to throw away the device since Ibara likely activated it but Oarashi had swallowed it and it activates, to Soyuz' horror.[23]

When Ibara petrified the island, Soyuz and his allies put their faith in Senku to win. Ibara came across the statue of Soyuz and taunted him on making it back home only to end up petrified like his father.[1]

Once Ibara is defeated, Soyuz is revived by Senku. Soyuz helps Senku and the others revive their allies. He is surprised when Kirisame kneels to him during the celebration.[24]

New America City Arc

He recognizes the shape of the device once the group are confused by Whyman's call. Soyuz helps Taiju with bringing up the unidentified statue. The symbol on the person's detached arm is the same as the shape of the petrification device. Soyuz reattaches the arm and watches the man being revived.[25]

Soyuz joins the others in reviving the islanders, although he is disappointed to hear that his father can't be revived. Regardless, he is recognized by the islanders as the leader's son. The next day, he decides to stay behind and become the new head of the Petrification kingdom. He tells Senku that he remembers how to make the Revival Fluid and will be reviving the remaining petrified islanders. He asks Kirisame to take his place within the Kingdom of Science to defeat the Whyman. A teary eyed Soyuz bids his friends farewell, as they sail off.[26]
