Ginko is the main character of the series Mushi-shi. He is laid back and frequently smokes. He has a wide knowledge of mushi and helps people during his travels.
Ginko was originally an ordinary young boy, until the day that he encountered a woman called Nui, with white hair and a hidden eye. He lived with her and learned much from her about the ways of mushi, until one day when she was being swallowed up by the Ginko mushi that lived in the nearby pond. He attempted to rescue her, but to no avail, and to save himself he had to sacrifice one eye and his old name, taking on the name of Ginko instead.
Ginko was created by the mangaka Yuki Urushibara for the manga Mushishi. Initially, Mushishi was supposed to be set in differeing time periods, hence why Ginko's outfit choice seems rather unusual for this time period. In the anime, Ginko is portrayed by Yuto Nakano in the Japanese language track, and Travis Willingham in the English dub.
