|SPOILER WARNING: Major plot details for Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin! follow. (Skip section)|
Inoue Genzaburo was originally called Serizawa Kamo. He adopted the identity of Inoue Genzaburo a year before the events of Ryu ga Gotoku Ishin! after killing the real Inoue, along with the real Okita Souji and Nagakura Shinpachi. Shinsengumi chief Kondo Isami realizes that if word gets out that the three Mito faction members are dead, it will be the end of the group. He thus requests Kamo, along with Hirayama Goro and Hirama Jusuke, assume the identities of Inoue, Okita, and Nagakura respectively.
