AppearanceEditDaniel is a foreigner from Bulgaria. He is light skinned and possesses a large muscular build with neck-length blonde hair. His mawashi is red in color. When seen outside the sumo club his attire usually consists of a large red jumpsuit.
He is the the second most laid-back wrestler in the team, and often given teammates English nicknames, even when he doesn't speak English. He also speaks Japanese in only honorific speech, even with his friends, or people younger than him.
He is naturally popular with girls, because it is an anomaly to have Caucasian sumo wrestlers in Japan.
His record is the opposite to Yomoda Jin. He has never won a bout in individual competitions, but as a foreigner, he also cannot gain National Treasure monikers.
Despite his tall physique, he stated he was weak, as he still hasn't won an individual bout. Like Ozeki, he also cared more about persevering in the sport despite the poor winning record, especially when they each have a yokozuna-level wrestler to try and eventually dethrone as a goal.
Skill-wise, he has no idea how to maximize his height and weight advantage, but manges to use left-arm clamp that is perfected by Yamatokuni and his son, Kuze Sōsuke. He even has special moves that are identical to them: Great Serpent Cleaver, but Daniel tends to strike as a counter by reaching around the back of the muwashi belt due to his reach advantage. However, he was swiftly countered by Ozeki by beltlesss arm throw, which gave Ozeki the win.
