Main Article: The Adventure of the Great Departure

Taizou was a poor solider, and to make ends meet, he would often steal from rich patrons. One day, at the resturant La Quantos, he met an antique dealer named Sanmon Sonohigurashi. Taizou stole Sonohigurashi's koban and hid it under his beef steak. Suddenly, a gunshot was heard, Taizou saw a young man holding a gun and a man who was shot. After the young man was arrested, Taizou swapped the beefsteak at that table with his beefsteak that had koban under it so he wouldn't get caught as a thief.

In the trial for the shot man's murder, the defendant, Ryūnosuke Naruhodō exposed him of his theft of Sonohigurashi's koban. After that, it was revealed that the beefsteak Taizou swapped actually had the victim's blood on it, revealing that a British woman who was also there actually poisoned the victim before the gunshot.

Afterwards, he was put on trial for his theft.


  • His surname "Uzukumaru" (渦久丸) may come from "uzukumaru", meaning "to crouch".
