Soshi Okita (六代目 沖田 総司, Okita Sōshi?), a Famous and Professional Kendo Practitioner who is also known as Soshi Okita VI (六代目 沖田 総司, Rokudaime Okita Sōshi?), is a supporting character in the manga and anime franchise Yaiba and a recurring character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.
Soshi Okita is a descendant in the sixth-generation of the historical Okita Sōji, who was the leader of the Shinsengumi, a legendary 19th-century samurai police force, and was persuaded by his family, especially his so far unseen grandfather, to follow the path of the sword in his life. In the course of this, Soshi has to train kendo in the Okita's private dojo extensively every day, which, due to his innate talent, causes him to become the "most powerful samurai" soon, who is apparently unbeaten up until his appearances in the two series. This fate, however, isn't in his own interest at all, since he is bored of being a swordmaster when there's no one around who poses a challenge.
He has a habit of looking for a quiet place in the tall grass before a fight and dozing off there to gather his strength. Yaiba Kurogane accidentally stumbles across him sleeping in the grass. Heiji Hattori also mentions that he passed the first to rounds to sleep in the tall grass behind the hall.
Soshi currently attends Senshin High School in Kyoto, where he attends the same class as the wealthy Momiji Ooka. He also owns an Omamori, a Japanese kind of lucky charm, from the Hachidai shrine, which, according to him, has been passed down for generations by the Okita family and, as he believes, helped him to never lose a fight. He keeps a photograph of Moroha Kurogane, Yaiba's little sister, inside the charm, with whom he is secretly in love, which he cannot admit until he has beaten her brother.
Soshi is tall young man who bear a striking resemblance to Shinichi
Soshi Okita very often has a carefree and playful, almost childish, attitude.
