Ukyo Saionji (
He is one of the Five Wise Generals of the Kingdom of Science. He always proposes the use of non-violence, but will relent if not possible. Because of this, he will push to use Gen's mentalist trickery. Ukyo is in charge of intel gathering and security.
Built similarly to Senku, Ukyo is a slim, yet toned young man of average height, with short, blonde hair and blue eyes. He has round, boyish facial features and often sports a laid-back look on his face. He wears a long, baggy orange top with a loose turtleneck and is rarely seen without his signature, matching paper cap. He's always carrying a bow and quiver on his back, the sling of which features decorative fur of some kind. He wears long, fitted khaki trousers and distinctively-pointed brown loafers.
Like most modern timers, he has a petrification scar on his body but it is unknown where. He later recreates his unknown scar, as a sign of loyalty to Senku.
He is pacifistic and dislikes needless bloodshed. While he initially joined Tsukasa's empire as he believed it to be the only way of survival and looked away from Tsukasa's breaking of statues (which is the equivalent of murder), he chose to side with Senku and his kingdom of science under the condition that not a single life would be lost.
When Senku fulfills his promise, Ukyo fully sides with the Kingdom of Science. He is notably intelligent, managing to quickly deduce that the Lillian talking over the telephone was Gen in disguise and managing to keep Senku's allies alive while they were in the Tsukasa Empire without alerting Tsukasa's suspicions. He also prefers to use his archery to corner his opponents rather than outright murder them though may be willing to murder if forced to.
Abilities and Skill
- Super Sensitive Hearing: As a result of his career as a sonar technician while working for the SDF Navy, Ukyo now has extremely sensitive hearing which allows him to locate a target with pinpoint accuracy by sound alone.
- Archery: He has tremendous skill with archery, managing to shoot arrows at Magma and Chrome that made it look as if he was trying to pursue them, but purposely shooting so they would hit close to their bodies, but miss. In addition, he is skilled enough to shoot an arrow to save Chrome from falling in a waterfall. It is unknown whether he learned archery before or after the petrification.
- Intelligence: While chasing Gen, Magma and Chrome Ukyo lured them into bushes where it would be harder to avoid detection through his ears. When Chrome created a smokescreen he took advantage of it by using it to conceal his own position while moving and shooting arrows. Despite Gen managing to perform a perfect imitation of Lilian's voice, he was able to tell that it was Gen simply from deducing that Gen wasn't tired from singing for a long period of time like how the real Lilian (or any other singer) would be after singing an elaborate song.
- Linguistic Proficiency: Ukyo is shown to be bilingual, as he is able to speak both Japanese and English. He spoke English to Senku using his buried phone in order to conceal their conversation from the others present.
- Chapter 75's coloured manga page may depict an earlier version of Ukyo, where he has a petrification scar along his cheekbone and no pants.
