Character Description: Ranma Saotome

As for our well-built hero/heroine (sort of), the martial art of kempo is his life. Never turns down a challenge (martial arts rhythmic gymnastics, martial arts figure skating, etc, etc... basically if it has "martial arts" in the name, he'll win, eventually). Ranma's only weak spot is that he is deathly afraid of cats do to an attempt by his father to teach him the cat-fist technique.

Training with his father at the mysterious Jusenkyo training ground in China, he was thrown into a spring called Nyanniichuan, where a young girl drowned 1500 years ago (very tragic story ^_^). He emerged as a young girl, according with the spring's curse. When splashed with hot water, he changes back to a boy, but when splashed with cold to room temperature water, he turns into a girl again.

By an arrangement made by Soun Tendo and Genma Saotome while they were training under Happosai, Ranma is engaged to marry Akane Tendo so they can carry on the Tendo dojo. But neither party wants to go through with this arrangement. As the series goes on, however, Ranma and Akane grow to love each other, but neither of them will admit it to anyone.
