He controlled Futago Pass for 5 years. Riki, Gin and the other Ōu Soldiers defeated the giant bear to take back their territory. As he was dying, Riki handed over his leadership of the mountains to his son, and afterward, Futago Pass belonged to Gin.
A new threat invades the Dogs' Paradise. The monster, Kaibutsu, a giant dog who killed every man or dog he encountered, ran into the mountains and started living there. After a long struggle, he was defeated by Weed and the other Ōu soldiers. Not too long after his defeat, however, Hōgen, a Great Dane from the Southern Alps, captured the travelling Gin and John and attempted to invade the Dogs' Paradise as well.
Just like in GNG's Akakabuto arc, the final battle in GDW occurs in Futago Pass.
Futago Pass is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
