Komatarou is a a small white lion-dog creature with curly tufts of fur, pointed ears and round black eyes topped with prominent curly eyebrows. While employed as a guardian he wears a collar with a pin of the True Cross insignia, and later trades it out for a bow tie.
Despite appearing to be a dog, Komatarou is a dignified and resolute character who takes his job very seriously to the point where he has no hobbies. He appears to be highly respected by other members of the Order, some even communicating with him via radio to ask his advice.
Before encountering Yukio Okumura, Komatarou had acted as a True Cross Knight for forty-two years. During this time, he also had someone make him a business card.
Komatarou is first encountered by Yukio Okumura outside the aged Archive building. Whilst originally there to give him a Dismissal Notification, upon observing Komatarou's dedication to his work, Yukio cannot bring himself to give him the letter. Turning to leave, Komatarou saves Yukio from treading on landmines he had set up in the area. With the letter being caught in the blast, it is burned open, allowing Komatarou to read the contents and discover the truth of Yukio's visit. Accepting this situation, he retires without argument.
He later sends Yukio a letter with photos detailing his exciting hobbies following his retirement, including surfing, barbeques, hanging around with other Komainu and driving in a sports car with beautiful women.
