Acacia (アカシア)The greatest bishoku-ya in human history and bishokushin (Gourmet God), as well as the combo partner of Frohze, he discovered countless ingredients all over the world. Including the Gourmet Jellyfish from which he discovered the Gourmet Cells, and is the first and only person to find the ingredient GOD, taking a long time to do so and only able to discover it in his final years. Distributing GOD to the leaders of every nation, he manages to end a centuries-long war between all the nations of the world, and bring about the current Gourmet Age. Near the end of his life, Acacia took three disciples: Ichiryu, the current president of the IGO, the "Knocking Master" Jiro, and Midora (the boss of the Bishokukai). While he did teach them many hunting techniques that were to become the basis of their greatness in their present day, he told them nothing about GOD, sensing that in the same way how it was used to end a war, it would be used to begin another.
Being called the "Bishokushin", or Gourmet God, Acacia is worshipped by the people of the world. His golden statue is located in a gigantic temple called the "Gourmet Temple", which is visited by roughly 9 billion people every day, trying to get lucky and successful in their lives.
