"Foxfire Kin'emon" is a  samurai from Wano Country, a retainer of the  Kozuki Family, the leader of the  Nine Red Scabbards, the husband of  Tsuru, and a former thug. He was born 56 years before the present day, but traveled 20 years forward in time when he was 36 years old. 
Due to Wano Country having been taken over by
Kurozumi Orochi, an ally of Kaido of the Four Emperors, Kin'emon set out on a seafaring quest to recruit warriors for his cause, bringing alongside him his master, Kozuki Momonosuke, as well as two of his comrades. After a series of misadventures, Kin'emon ended up on the island of Punk Hazard, where he met and joined forces with the Straw Hat Pirates, posing as Momonosuke's father during the journey to Zou.
He is one of the central allies of the Straw Hats during the
Dressrosa and Four Emperors Sagas. 
Kin'emon's appearance matches the stereotype of samurai found in ancient Japan, with a black topknot and goatee.
At 295 cm (9'8"), he is taller than  Brook who stands at 277 cm (9'1"). He is also quite muscular.  His eyes are asymmetrical, with his right eye opening more than his left. 
His attire consists of a samurai gi that is black and white striped on the left side and orange on the right. Kept on the left side of his torso is a pair of katana with identical flame-patterned sheaths. For footwear, he wears simple geta sandals.
He has the crest of the
Kozuki Family tattooed on his back.
Over 25 years ago, he had blonde hair and did not wear it in a top-knot. It was only after Kin'emon became a proper samurai that it started resembling his current hairstyle.
