Amada is the sluice gate keeper in the town of Radat, but is originally an expert fisherman and naval navigator from the Island Nations.
Amada is a well-built man with short black hair. He wears a typical fishermen's tunic, with only bandages underneath, and a fondoshi, as well as purple wraps around his wrists and ankles.
His weapon of choice is a gigantic oar.
Amada is usually not one about someone else's situation, unless he sees that someone has determination in them. He seems to enjoy one on one duels, perhaps as a way to show how he feels about someone, and has a bit of a playful personality when off duty, at which time he can found at the bar drinking. He also tends to address others casually.
In order to recruit Shu, Apple, Riou and the party went to Radat and asked Gin, who was in charge of the sluice gate, to have it closed, in order for the river to be drained. He refused to do it, then Amada entered the scene and took over from him. Riou insisted to have the sluice gate closed, but Amada would only do so on one condition; Riou must defeat him in a duel. After Riou won the duel, Amada saw Riou's determination, and he closed the sluice gate.
later, Riou returned to ask Amada to join the New State Army. Again, Amada challenged him to a duel and joined Riou upon his second defeat. After the war, he went on to command a ship and returned to the Island Nations.
Role in the Game
Amada is a solid frontline option during the earlier parts of the game due to high HP and strength. Once you progress further through the game you will find that his access to only 1 rune slot limits him greatly when compared to other options.

"I heard he can't wake up in the morning without a big helping of fermented soy-beans on rice. I'm a big fan of 'natto' myself."
"The Island Countries are really a collection of small island nations far south of here. The people there are famous for their great seamanship."
"When you line him up next to Rikimaru, the two of them look like quite a 'manly' combo."

"A lifetime on the sea, of course the sailor's favorite dish must be...fish. It's Amada!!!"
- In the Japanese version, his weapons are references to the card game Koi-Koi. In order, they are "Tane" (animal), "Tanzaku" (ribbon card)", and "Shikou" (four lights).
