The Rupan III, or Lupin III, stories are about the adventures of the
master thief Rupan and his companions. Among those in his gang are:
- Goemon Isikawa - this fellow is a samurai, by trade, with a really
sharp sword. He has mad a vow. If Rupan is to die, it will be by his
hand. Which basically means that he protects him at nearly every
- Chegan - a master gun user type person. Just as Rupan is a master
