Personality: Straightforward | To himself | Tidy | "Live in the moment" | Bold at the markets | Adventurous | Anti-hero

Good guy? Bad guy? Ronin would basically live for himself if it weren't for Amaterasu's spirit guiding him in the path of service and good. As a treasure hunter he works to keep himself busy, and wealthy to get his mind off of the broken world today. He's straight forward and usually to himself unless he's in the market bartering trades off treasure he discovered. The boy can sure haggle down a price if push comes to shove. Ronin is usually tidy unless he's in his secret treasure vault where he basically tosses valuable artifacts to the side, adding to his mounds trinkets. He feels that the damage he creates to his treasure makes it look older and therefore can sell for more. He's always out on the surface scavenging the rubble of the former world, or in caves and hidden passages, searching for something worth while.



-Useful and handy items

-Enchanted treasure


-The thrill of life or death situations




-Rowdy people

-Thieves that try to get at his treasure.

-The cold

-His family treasured katanas



Ronin lived with his father, an uptight traditional man who thrived on preserving the Japanese culture against the ever changing currents of time. They both lived in a traditional Japanese home not far from the main cities part of which was also a dojo which ensued kendo and sword practice as required by his father. Other fathers would teach their boys how to ride a bike, play baseball, etc. But as for Ronin’s dad, he was the stern, well disciplined, traditional man who wouldn’t bat an eyelash at such modern activities. He raised him single handedly after Ronin’s mother died giving birth to him. Never has his father felt any more pain than by losing his beloved wife and it affected his parenting significantly. In order for Ronin’s father to compensate for the weakness he’s exposed after losing his mother, he raised Ronin to steel himself, be composed, and well disciplined. The art of swordmanship was mainly how he went about practicing such discipline. Ever since Ronin was a child he was brought up wielding the katana.

However against the ever so influencing changes of time, Ronin had gone through a pubescent phase where he would defy his father at times and even change the style of swordsmanship to better ‘fit’ himself. This didn’t roll well with his father and eventually they ended up quarreling with each other for weeks. There was one instance where Ronin had gotten so upset with his father because he seemed to indulge himself more in sword practice than his own son. It pissed him off so bad that he planned to get back at his dad by stealing the family’s prized, handed-down-for-generations katanas mounted on the walls of the dojo. He nearly succeeded but failed due to sheer bad luck and timing. This angered his father so deeply that they ended up dueling against each other resulting in Ronin’s loss (plus a few new bruises on his
body). Ronin respected his father, but would often question as to why since he was very stubborn, seemed to obsess himself with sword practice rather than his son, and actually quite abusive when it came to discipline. Later on his
respect for him dwindled down to nothing more than a person to obey until he turned 18 to finally move out on his own. A few weeks after his 18th birthday, Ronin was packed and ready to leave; he had enough money, his clothes were stuffed in a few couple duffle bags and he was completely set on leaving everything else behind—his swordmanship, his home, and his father.

Ronin literally had his foot out of the door when the Trilogy of Destruction made its way onto the land. His home began collapsing on itself and to his surprise, found that it began sinking as violent tremors shook up the area around him. It was only a matter of seconds until the dojo completely disappeared into the ground as a giant sinkhole opened up, consuming anything that was over it. It was a quick glimpse, but Ronin caught the figure of his father barely making it out of the dojo holding the family katanas. He dropped his bags and rushed back into the house, to meet with his father and guide him out of there (since he was much old now that Ronin was 18). With the ceiling collapsing down upon them, Ronin out of sheer luck managed to make final contact with his father before half his house fell into another sinkhole.

His father was now clinging onto a sturdy piece of the floorboard for dear life. Ronin reached out to grab for his hand but saw that he had his hands full with the family katanas. Desperate, he begged his father to let go of the swords and to grab his hand to save his life. With his final words, Ronin’s father threw him the family katanas with an old man’s apology. His grip on the floorboard had loosened and he fell to his death before Ronin’s eyes.



Ronin awoke, coughing and gasping for air after being knocked unconscious by the rubble of his house crumbling down. He suffered a little amnesia only losing fragments of his past, and even his name. Ronin clutched onto the katanas he had knowing forever the embodiment of pain of parting with his father, and having handed to him the reason what tore them apart in the first place. Feeling weary, uneasy, and weak he stumbled across a group of traveling monks who were seeking survivors from the Trilogy of Destruction. It was that time he received his name (they ended up just calling
him Ronin since he wielded katanas) and they took him in.

Time has passed since then and Ronin found himself a wanderer as his monk masters were. He grew accustomed to the life of travel and danger encounters, not to mention the rewards of treasures that entailed dangerous adventures. And so he currently lives on as a treasure hunter at this time.


-Ronin’s first method of fighting is with his bare hands, since
he’s currently mastering the martial art of using an enemy’s power against
itself. He hates using his katana’s since they remind him too much of his
father and will only draw it in desperate situations.

-Ronin acquired his name after being brought in by traveling
monks who had found him clutching onto his katanas in front of the ruins that
used to be his home. His real name is lost to him after he was knocked out by
flying debris. They named him Ronin since he wielded katanas and had figured he
had lost his master.

-Ronin’s unarmed fighting style is designed to disarm and
render an enemy incapacitated.

-Always carries around his katanas at his side. ALWAYS

-His katana blade is black.

-He usually wears his coat out when treasure hunting (will draw that later)
