Ichiro Ogami (大神 一郎, Ōgami Ichirō) is the playable character and main male protagonist of Sakura Wars through Sakura Wars 4. He is the captain of the Imperial Combat Revue's Flower Division before being transferred to the Paris Combat Revue, before the two briefly merge in the final battle of Sakura Wars 4.
Ichiro has brushed-up spiky black hair and dark-colored eyes.
He wears a white uniform jacket, yellow linings and buttons, white ascot, trousers and white leather shoes.
Ichiro has an (un)fortunate knack for, maybe accidentally, running into some of his female comrades in varying states of undress.
Ichiro is a bonafide ladies' man—able to charm his way into the hearts of each of his female teammates.
Ichiro can be hot-blooded at times.
Ichiro wears his uniform well alongside his various acts of heroism, gallantry, and overall reliability as both a leader and person.
A graduate of the Imperial Naval Academy, Ogami was chosen to head the Hanagumi when he proved himself capable during a test of a Koubu prototype at sea. Kayama was with him during that time, but eventually Ogami was sent to work with the Hanagumi, as Kayama worked with the Tsukigumi.
In the games
In the first Sakura Wars, Ogami was just newly transferred to the highly secret Imperial Assault Force. What happens in the game is based on the player's decisions.
Ogami is given the command of the Imperial Flower Combat Troupe after being away for a year to complete duties as a Naval Officer in the Imperial Japanese Navy. What occurs in the story is based on the player's decision.
Ohgami is transferred to Paris to develop the newly created Paris Assault Force. Again, much of the story revolves around the player's decision.
The Imperial Flower Combat Troupe faces a new threat in Tokyo, and Ogami is given the responsibility of commanding the troupe along with the Paris Assault Force. Ohgami finally chooses a girl, and they (presumably) live happily ever after.
In 1928, Ichiro meets up with at the Theater with his nephew Shinjiro Taiga. Shinjiro greets his uncle and says that he is assigned to join the Imperial Combat Revue. To his surprise, Ichiro then tells him that he was not dispatched to join the group but to go overseas in America and join the Star Division of the New York Combat Revue. While Shinjiro is nervous at the idea of going overseas, Ichiro reassures him that he also felt the same when he went to Paris and that he will tell his friends in New York to help his nephew out if necessary. Before leaving Japan, Shinjiro is given a black pouch by his uncle who tells him to use it only if he finds himself in a tight spot. He also tells him to believe in himself no matter which enemies he comes across. Shinjiro promises his uncle that he will do his best.
