Relationships

Ryo Saeba(冴羽 獠)

They share a kind of frenemy relationship. As partners, they have joined hands in many cases for the jobs in Japan. In the later part of the manga, though Umibozu was being robbed of his sight by Ryo in an incident, he held no ill-feelings for Ryo and merely accepted it as a Cause & Effect of a conflict. 

Miki(美樹)

A beautiful sweeper who is Umibozu's partner and in the later part of the story, his wife. They manage "Cat's Eye Cafe" together. As an orphan from a civil war, she was raised by Umibozu and taught self-defense. When she wanted to join as a mercenary, Umibozu lied to her and left her behind, in order for her to pursue her life as an ordinary woman away from the battlefield. In order to realize her dream of marrying him, she pursued him and reappeared before him in Japan. The turning point in their relationship however was when Umibozu's sight deteriorated, it concluded and fulfilled her wish. Their marriage ceremony is in Vol.35. In Angel Heart, Miki's character is a child who has lived as a street urchin ever since her mother died, and was picked up and raised by Umibozu.
