A typical mad scientist, he cares very little about the side effects that his research has on the people of Zawame or the Beat Riders, who he treats as guinea pigs.
It's worth noting that his family name is pronounced the same as the Sengoku 戦国 Era which is one of the themes of the series. However, the second kanji is different, changing the meaning to "battle extremes".

Trivia[edit]

  • The A in Yggdrasill forms the trunk of the logo's giant tree. Their base is Yggdrasill Tower which is a building shaped like a giant tree.
  • Yggdrasill has commercial/propaganda similar to Smart Brain's commercials in Faiz.
  • Apparently Yggdrasill's presence in the town has only been within the last 20 years. Before, it was a small town like any other found in Japan, but that all changed when Yggdrasill moved in.
