|Chinese|| Li Dian|
(stands for village chief)
His attire is befitting of his title as village chief. He is a very plump man and carries himself as someone of stature.
He openly showed favoritism towards Hyou and had open dislike for Shin. He took to whipping Shin on the word of his son alone without any proof or having witnessed it himself.
The village head and his family have had Shin and Hyou as their slaves ever since they were children, but this family is never given a name. The son seems to have really cared about Hyou since he is the one who demands that Shin avenge his death. Also, he is the one to stop Jo Kan from beheading Hyou's body; however, this leads to the assassin chasing after Shin instead.
It was stated by Bi Hei at a later time that they held a really big funeral for Hyou and many people attended cause Hyou was loved by many.
- Village Chief's name was mentioned as "Ri Ten" thrice through the anime. Unfortunately this is not his name but his title as Village Chief
