Titles: Single Strike Master Sensei

Shinjo Kisuke was a bushi of the Unicorn Clan, veteran of various wars and a graduate of the Ide Duelist, who became the sensei of the Single Strike Dojo.

Family Edit

Kisuke was born several years before the Second Day of Thunder. He was raised in Shiro Ide by his relatives, since both of his parents were busy as part of Shinjo Yokatsu's personal guard. They died in a skirmish against the Yogo Junzo's Army. His Ide uncle was a duelist who took Kisuke under his wing, and the boy chose to follow his uncle's footsteps and learn the path of iaijutsu. After the return of Kami Shinjo, few months before his gempukku, his aunt was revealed as a kolat and executed. His uncle committed seppuku in shame. [1]

Station Edit

Kisuke served as yojimbo to an Iuchi Shugenja and fought in the Battle of Oblivion's Gate. Kisuke had a cheerful demeanor despite he had suffered many battle scars, and his left arm hanged limp from an injury taken during the War of Spirits. [2]

Sensei Edit

His Champion Moto Gaheris assigned Kisuke to teach the techniques he learned at the Ide Duelist school, the Single Strike Dojo. When the Headmaster retired Kisuke was his natural replacement. [3] He had two senior sensei, his childhood friend Ide Xilung and the ronin Tsukiya. [4]
