Real Name: Kenshin Himura
Search for 'Himura Kenshin' on Amazon
God-like speed, which allows Kenshin, to make very high jumps, slash multiple opponents with a single draw and dodge just about any attack.
Once an assassin named Batt˘sai, Kenshin vanished during the final days of pre-Meiji Japan, only to recently surface at the Kamiya dojo. A man of principles and discipline, Kenshin's skill with a sword (either a katana or his reversed-edge sakabat˘) is legendary.
Kenshin is loosely based on a real hitokiri, Kawakami Gensai.
The cross-shaped scar was added, just because Kenshin looked too feminine without it.

"A sword is a weapon. Whatever pretty names you give it, swordmanship is a way to kill. She speaks as ine who has never bloodied her hands. Kaoru-dono maintains a sweet, naive lie. But in the face of such awful truth, the naive lie she tells is so much better."
