Samurai and member of the Isshin Shishi. He joined the Shishi at the age of 22, following the lead of his close friend Kubo Takeuchi. Despite being a strong and talented warrior, Iwasaki leaned on Kubo for his intelligence and strategic mind. He believed Kubo would go far as a Samurai and encouraged him to also pursue a career as a statesman. He died at the Battle of Toba Fushimi, trying to protect Kubo. His parents never had the chance to find out he had married, but he left enough money for his wife to live well in her village. A samurai is always prepared for death.
