All About Masashi Kaname

Theme: The Way of Honour

Appearance and Personality:

Having lived with a rough crowd since he was a child, his appearance is somewhat coarse. His complexion is swarthy, face with unshaven stubble, and his black hair always slightly unkempt no matter how much he tries straightening it out. So far he has managed to keep it restrained in a ponytail with it still going wild at the ends. His expression normally is intense, being the cause of several poor first impressions. Beneath the intimidating stare is man who keeps his word and upholds a code of honor, choosing to act on a higher standard. Every task he puts his hand to is done wholeheartedly, as to give anything less than his all would be a disrespect. A honest soul with a very rugged exterior, Masashi's heart is wider than most from similar circumstances. He is a faithful and loyal friend to those who are close to him, and a resolute man unafraid to fight for his beliefs when facing his enemies.


Masashi was a street orphan as far as he can remember. He and several other children used to steal food and hide from the guards just to survive. Being strays meant they weren't welcome in most places, and life was hard. That all changed when a man named Gen Takara took them in. He gave them names, a place to call home, and the closest thing they had to family. On the outskirts of Nisshoki near the mountains, Takara established a small group of brigands that claimed the surrounding area as their turf. They were just a small regional band, defending villages in their territory from others like them in exchange for protection fees. Years passed and Masashi learned how to act as a member of the hierarchy, respecting his superiors and mentoring new recruits. They were doing well and the villages under their protection respected them. Unfortunately that peace was short-lived.

As he began entering the later years of his life, Takara once called him aside and asked him what he would do if he disbanded their gang. At the time Masashi didn't understand what the older man was implying. He answered he would still follow Takara no matter what, out of gratitude for being the father he and the others never had. That was one of the last moments he shared with Takara before his entire world was turned on its head. Takara's second in command, Shohei Hiryu, killed Takara in a violent coup for control of the gang. Several members loyal to Takara were killed trying to defend their leader and a few of the survivors ran. Masashi was ready to stand and fight for Gen's life when the man told him with his dying breath to go and live. He managed to escape unharmed, but only after making the painful decision to leave behind the man whom he called 'father'.

After self-appointing himself as leader, Shohei moved the gang to Jayou where he gradually rose to power in Jayou's underworld. Ever since Shohei's usurpation of power, Masashi became a wanted man. Still seeking to wipe out the last remnants of Takara's most devoted loyalists, the head of the newly renamed 'Hiryu Clan' now controls the members who remained with an iron fist. It will only be a matter of time before Masashi will be forced to face Hiryu in a confrontation where only one survives.
