Akiim Chant is an Iranian who works at the New Yokosuka Harbour District in order to earn enough money to send back home to pay off a large debt he owes. He has a wife and two children waiting for him back in Iran and, despite being unhappy running around doing errands for Toshimichi Fukui, he keeps quiet about it. He is quite sensitive to the cold so always wears two pairs of gloves.
