Ginga Densetsu Weed

Tetsuo was born in the early autumn, three days after Weed and Koyuki's puppies were born.

Ginga Densetsu Weed: Orion

Tetsuo's family and the Ōu warriors are forced to flee a volcanic eruption in the area. Gin and Akame grab all pups they can and make their escape but fall unconscious due to the smoke and ash in the air. Kurohabaki Jinemon finds them and carries them to an abandoned mine where he locks them up. Tetsuo and his family are later released by Daisuke who gained the key from Jinemon.

Ginga: The Last Wars

A few months have passed in Ōu when the son of Akakabuto, Monsoon, attacks the Ōu Army intending to kill them all and take back his father's land. His brother, Lenov, is crushed and killed by one of the bears. Tetsuo and his brother Akira  try to help their brother but both are slashed and instantly killed by the bears.
