Master Inu is one of the minor characters from the Wild Grinders series.
Master Inu is first introduced as a respectful and calm being, who trains dogs with an animal martial art technique called "pawjitsu". When he first encountered Meaty, he memorizes that Meaty is one of the bulldog ancestors, written in the ancient paw prints; however, Inu thinks that Meaty is not yet skilled in pawjitsu. Inu is passionately critical of Meaty's failure; for instance, Inu challenges him to play the blues with a shamisen, but Meaty fails to do so, then Inu calls his failure worthless.
Master Inu resembles of a ginger-colored Akita dog. He sports an eyepatch located to his left eye and a blue, short-sleeved robe with dark highlights. Inu is always shown to be an astral projection with a hint of magenta-colored light; according to himself, he could be anywhere.
Master Inu's name derives of a Japanese translation, "inu" (犬), which translates to English as "dog". His breed, the Akita, originates in the northern regions of Japan. You can learn more here.
