Setoru was a Torumekian soldier who served under Kushana. He was stationed on her command vessel and survived the Battle of the Acid Lakes. During Kushana's invasion of Dorok, he contracted miasma poisoning in an unnamed Dorok village.
He was dying, coughing up blood, until Nausicaä performed mouth-to-mouth on him and saved his life. Kurotowa, thinking him dead, tried to rally the troops but it is revealed that he survives. The rest of the crew accepted Nausicaä as one of their own after that.
