Gicchin (ギッチン Ghicchin, lit: Gitchen) is Jiren's master.
Gicchin is a tall muscular man with green skin and pointed ears. He has long white hair and a beard.
Gicchin appears to have been a very noble person, as he took an orphaned Jiren in and trained him along with many others so that they could fight for the sake of justice. He even sacrificed himself to save his remaining students from being killed.
Gicchin was friends with Belmod before he became a God of Destruction. It was Gicchin's belief in teamwork that led to Belmod choosing to become a God of Destruction - as he believed in power over Gicchin's "sappy" views.
In the anime, Gicchin saved Jiren from the villain that killed his family and after that he trained with Jiren and his new students to improve their strength. Later, with his students, they fought the same villain, but he and most of his students died in battle.
In the manga, Gicchin used to be Belmod's close friend and was the one who encouraged his pupil, Jiren, to join the Pride Troopers, in hopes he would learn about teamwork. But sometime after Jiren joined the Pride Troopers, Gicchin lost his life to a demon. Due to being killed by a demon, it became impossible to resurrect Gicchin without the Super Dragon Balls.
