Batsu and his Sword Kyotansen
: Batsu Kumashi Hair
: Dark brownEyes
: Golden Age
: Good Height
: 6' 5'' Weight
: 195 lbs Occupations
: Bodyguard / Travelling Sword Student
Orphan at young age, Batsu was raised in a secluded Dojo (see img 1) he was trained in the way of the sword, as the others orphans and disciples that lived there. He wasnt the best, or the worse, his only field of specialty was the brute force, even in his young age he could do featsof strenght that were even more awesome that the ones his sensei made.
Even so, he wasnt the best in techniques or speed, so his overwhelming strenght was much mis-used or not focused enough when he attacked. Even more he always tried to control it, but he always went from restraining too much, to using his full strenght, that destroyed a lot of training shinai.
If he wasnt the most advanced of the class he was the one who represented the ideal swordsman, a honarable and gentle warrior who fighted not only for winning or power, he fighted for the sake of learning and improving his skills, so he could not only control his strenght but to enforce in the worlds his ideals of honor and loyalty with his sword.
Img 1: Batsu's Monastery
When he reached his late teenager years, he started to feel more and more uncomfortable in the monastery, his strengt was so inmense and he lacked so much control that he was scared of hurting someone. He decided to travel throught the realms that were near his monastery to search for a cure.
He travelled for two years, and worked as a bodyguard and served as mercenary in some battles of the feudal lords of his country, but he didnt finded a way to control his curse (he thought of it as a curse), but when he was about to quit his journey he found a old man called Gohei, he was a blacksmith, and his whole life he searched for someone capable of wielding a sword he made, he called it Kyotasen (Giant Edge).
At first Batsu laughed at the name of the sword (it wasnt so big) and the ridiculous way the old man was carrying it, the sword was resting alone in a cart pulled by two horses, and the hold man walked along the cart carrying his tools in a backpack. But when Batsu tried to lift the sword up, he felt something he didnt expected to feel, the sword was heavy, he was shocked, since he was a kid anything he tried to lift seemed light as feather, he even had accidentally swinged a shinai so hard that slipped from his hands a flied over 1 km.
He lifted Kyotasen with one hand but with a lot of effort, and Gohei was even more shocked than him, hundred of warriors tried to lift the sword, but the only that could do it (and with one hand) was Batsu. Suddenly he begun to cry, seeing his wish fullfilled, finally finding someone that could lift his best work.
The sword was heavy, but Batsu lifted it, he knew that this sword was meant for him, so he wanted to know more about it. He asked Gohei, who was crying in joy of seeing his dream come true, Gohei washed his face and started talking about the Sword. -When I was younger I worked as weaponsmith of a powerful warlord. He always wanted me to create a sword that was only meant for him, a unique sword he said. My attempts were futile, each of my creations were rejected without even testing and he throwed them to the fire-.He cleared his throat and continued.
- One night all the people in his camp saw a star fall of from heavens and crash near. We rushed towards it, only to find a giant lump of charred metal resting in the crater, the Warlord was amazed, and he told me to create a sword with the core of that Star. My helpers brought the lump of metal to my workshop, they thought it was too light to use it for a sword, but I was compelled by my honor to fullfill the wishes of my lord-. He stood up and moved towards Batsu while he drawed with his finger a circle around the lower half of the blade, showing the shield of a Feudal Lord.
He sitted again and continued, - Like my helpers said the metal of the star was too light, so I mixed it with Iron, then it started to be easier to work on it. I Finally finished the blade, I was in such a hurry that I finished of uniting the sword and the handle even before it cooled. The sword was finished, and I was instructed to not even sharpen it, becouse my Lord wanted to do it himself-.
- The Warlord was a strong man, but surpisingly he couldnt lift the sword. He tried with both of his hands, but he couldnt. So he taked this a insult, and exiled me until I found someone capable of lifting the blade-.
After the story, they went to his all hometown and Batsu showed the proof of Gohei task being completed, they splitted ways, and now Batsu roams throught the land with his newfound sword to follow his principles and protect the innocent.
He now enjoys fighting and not worried anymore about controlling his strenght he re-started his training by lifting gigantic boulders or swinging tree to enhance not only his strenght, but his control of it
Batsu is very loyal if you are his friend and if you need help he will run to help you, but if you backstab him, he wont ever forgive you.
Dont mess with his food, he gets very pissed... Powers and Skills
Inmense Super Strenght ( 25/Unknown tons range)
His super Strenght changes according to if he is wearing the Chouin Yoroi or not.
He can take a serious beating and continue fighting, he can take some bullets and keep fighting. Damn, he keeps fighting no matter what. He can take on slahes and bullets as they were sticks and peebles...
Swordmanship (Advanced but not master level of Dai Tora Ryu)
A sword style based on fast upwards cuts, always having a low stance, like a crounching tiger. His signature a Attack is Torasen, a powerful slash that magnified by Batsu gigantic strenght creates a powerful gust of wind that sends the enemy to the air.
He will get up no matter what, if he haves the belief that he is doing the right thing he will get up even if you cut his legs...
Once he sets his mind in something he will fight until death and even beyond for that...
Not truly a power or a ability, take it as an indicator that Batsu is not only enjoying the fight, but he also is going all-out on your ass...
The sword forged by Gohei, it weights 5 tons, and Batsu is the only one that could wield it, the sword isnt sharp, but just the weight of it falling from one meter could give serious injuries to a normal human, Batsu only uses it in special ocassions, while most of the time he uses his Katana "Nanashi"
Gained after serving in one war between two lords, is a versatile and middle weight armor, protects his vital spots but doesnt hinders his movement. After Meeting with Gohei he covered it by a extra plating made of the same alloy of his sword to increase its weight.
Now the armor restrains his upper muscles to maintain his strenght stable in 25 tons, if he takes his armor his strenght increase dramatically
He wont hit you on the ground, or in the back, or attack people disarmed while he is armed, he wont attack women or childrens and he usually will help out that type of persons even if their aligment is evil (excepts he see them doing something incredibly evil in front of him) He wont escape a fight he entered, even if not doing it means defeat. He wont refuse a challenge for a duel.
Batsu suffers from a serious case of phobia, he wil start to tremble and feel bad when he is locked in a extremely small space.
