Tecchin Tecchikawahara ( (てっ) () (かわ) (はら) (てっ) (ちん) Tecchikawahara Tecchin?) is the chief of the Swordsmith Village.[1]


Tecchin is an elderly man who is partially bald on crown of his head, but has white, shoulder length hair. Despite his face being obscured by a hyottoko mask, he has noticeable wrinkles which can be seen from above his mask and along his neck.

Tecchin wears a diamond patterned kimono with a white juban underneath, and a black haori on top. His haori has the kanji "長" on the back which can be translated to chief.

Although his height has not been specified, he is short compared to the other inhabitants, he even admitted to being smallest person within the Swordsmith Village.[2]


Tecchin has the tendency to be very straight forward in regards to his thoughts, he openly admits to being the most self esteemed person in the village, proving so when he brazenly told Tanjiro to bow before him till his head touched the floor.[2]

However despite his intimidating demeanor, he still acts in a civilized manner as seen when he called Tanjiro a "nice young man" and even offered him snacks.


During some point in Hotaru's childhood, Tecchin took him in and raised him after his explosive behaviors made him difficult for his parents to raise him.[3]
