Gintama Wiki

I learned many things from the man with whom I fought with back-to-back. That's why I have no regrets. There is something that I must protect. Even if it means destroying Earth. Even if it means fighting against him. A true friend will always protect a friend's back. That is what I learned from my friend on Earth.


Elizabeth (エリザベス) is Katsura's unusual pet Amanto and a member of the Jouishishi. It is always by Katsura's side and has become inseparable as Katsura's sidekick. Fiercely loyal to Katsura, it has saved him on numerous occasions. Apparently, the members of the Jouishishi consider Elizabeth a high-ranked member of the Joui; in fact, he is like Katsura's right hand.

It was later revealed that there are two Elizabeth in the series that accompanies Katsura. The former AKA Eren is a Renho captain-later-general who serves Zura on Monday's shift. After the event of Renho Arc, Eren would depart Earth and leave his duty to another Elizabeth as a mascot.

In episode 173, Katsura was accompanied by Russian Elizabeth instead.

It is revealed that Elizabeth's real name is Dragonia (ドラゴニア), the eldest of the three Oukoku princes, other being his younger brothers Barkas and Hata.

After being abducted and turned into a Renho he adopts the name of General Eren of the Renho race, a race of mercenaries specialized in covert operations, and he, along with many Renho, act as pets for numerous Earthlings in order to prepare Earth for an invasion.

All the Renho, of which Elizabeth is a member, are in costume almost all the time. The Humanoid inside it is depicted as a dark-skinned, sweaty man with hairy legs and glowing pink eyes, but as the director, the Human has glasses but continues to have glowing eyes. Later on, having grown a short beard and having bloodshot eyes on its costume, maybe from reworking its costume by itself.

  • In the Soul Switch Arc, Tohru Furuya did not voice Kagura in Elizabeth's body, who was instead voiced by her voice actor, Rie Kugimiya, who also voiced Katsura in Kagura's body. This could be because he was not Monday Elizabeth a.k.a. General Eren, whom Furuya did the voice, but is instead the regular Elizabeth.
