He is the brother of Tattoo of Tektos. He was born in Hiroshima, Japan, and was 17 years old in the first two Genetix series. He is a mutant, whose powers surfaced at an early age. Their father sold them to the Yakuza to act as drug runners, but they were eventually captured by Dr. Mullarkey's Mutagenic Search Squad. He is the most mature of the bunch. He is almost always in control of his emotions, making him the physical bedrock of the team.
His memories were rewritten to make himself believe he had been an orphan brought up by a secretive group of warrior priests known as the Hikari-No-Michi, which means the Path of Light. He believed he had been advancing under their training, but had to flee when his powers erupted and he accidentally destroyed the temple. He believed that Mullarkey found him, befriended him, and helped him control his powers.
He can control the four ancient elements: earth, air, fire, and water. He often claims he can only combine and control two at a time, such as a wave of rock--but this is obviously just manipulating one at a time--more of a metaphorical combination.
He also possesses exceptional strength (possibly even enhanced human level), and a high level of mastery of the martial arts.
