シトマンドラ,, The Swift
Cytomander the Swift Shitomandora? is one of the Spiral Kings Four Divine Generals and the commander of Teppelins aerial forces and owner of the flying battleship the DaiGunten. As General Adiane only gets along with General Thymilph it seems that Cytomander only gets along with General Guame just like cytosine and guanine only bond with each other in the double helix of DNA. Cytomander attacked the Great Gurren Brigade twice losing his life the second time when the DaiGunten exploded. Cytomanders name is based on the DNA chemical cytosine and the elemental Salamander. His Gunmen Shuzack is based on the mythical Vermilion Bird Suzaku
