Biography: Not much is known about Gein except that he's obsessed with being on the cutting edge of technology and pursuing functional and aesthetic beauty. He likes to experiment with puppets and robots made of human flesh. Gein teams up with Enishi's goons, not for vengeance against Kenshin, but to test his Iwambou puppets and doll technologies.
