Yohachi is an old man. He has devoted his life to learning and always strives to acquire more knowledge.
Since he was a young man he has had a great interest in herbalism and alchemy and these days spends much of his time locked away at home making all manner of potions. Over the years he has gained a great understanding of how different herbs affect the body, in both positive and negative ways. He has also made good business over the years selling the potions he makes.
Now he is old, and has possibly spent too many years breathing in the fumes of his own concoctions. He is often lost in his own thoughts and can get distracted easily. He doesn't have much patience for those that try and interrupt his chain of thought and can come across as a little abraisive because of it.
However he is still sharp, and has learned much over the years. He carries a Jo staff that is as much a weapon as it is a walking stick. He is not as strong or as fast as he once was but many mistake him for a senile old man and underestimate him.
