Genbo is a fat, bald Shandia with a hat that resembles a chef's hat, but with dark yellow and white stripes on it. He wears a grass skirt, much like many of his comrades, and has a large belt with a big buckle hanging from over his left shoulder. His arms are covered by some sort of spotted, similar to that of a giraffe, fur-lined gloves reaching up to his neck, covering even the shoulders. He also has a standard pair of a Shandia's wings on his back.
After the timeskip he is seen to have slimmed down, wearing the coat his fellow guards are wearing fully buttoned with a large belt over it hanging from his left shoulder and the same hat he wore before the timeskip.
Genbo is a respected Shandia warrior. He is apparently not very talkative, and seems to take his fighting very seriously.
Abilities and Powers
Despite his fat appearance, Genbo has proven to be a capable fighter. He is strong enough to employ in combat a bazooka that shoots iron balls, an unusual weapon in the sky, as noted by Yama. Like many other Shandia, he can use a pair of Jet Skis to fly proficiently.
Being one of the Shandia, he was born in the sight of war. He, together with his Shandia friends, was told the story of Kalgara.
Sky Island Saga
He was first seen in a meeting with the other Shandia. After the meeting, they started moving to the God's Shrine. His group together with Kamakiri confronted Gedatsu, one of Enel's priest. Kamakiri was wounded by Ohm, causing them to retreat. As they proceeded to the forest, all of them were stuck in the Ordeal of String by Shura, except Wyper, who suddenly appeared out of nowhere and defeated the priest using a Reject Dial, thus freeing his comrades. As Genbo proceeded alone, he encountered and defeated some of the Divine Soldiers. He later ran into Yama. The two started fighting, but Genbo was rapidly defeated and left unconscious when Yama used his Ten-Fold Axe on him.
After the war, he was seen celebrating beside Zoro and everyone else who attended the celebration. He then reunited with his comrades in their effort to restore the forest.
