Character Description: Kenshiro

Kenshirou is the successor of the "Hokuto Shin Ken" style. He has seven scars on his chest in the shape of the "Hokuto Shichisei", or Big Dipper, that were put there by Shin. By pushing pressure points called "Keiraku Hikou", Kenshirou can destroy his enemies from the inside out, or heal the sick. Ken always kills his enemies ironically; the punishment always fits the crimes. For some reason the guys he kills usually say "Hidebu" or "Abeshi" right before they die.

Ken was born in the Taiseiden area in the Land of Shura. Kenshirou has an older brother, Hyou. Ken belongs to the ancient "Hokuto Souke" bloodline. When he was a baby, Kenshirou's life was saved by the mother of his future enemies, Kaiou and Raou. After this he was sent to Japan with Raoh and his brother Toki. They were adopted by the Hokuto Shin Ken master Ryuuken. Kenshirou was chosen as successor of the Hokuto Shin Ken style over his three adopted brothers, Raoh, Toki, and Jagi. He was engaged to Yuria of the Nanto Sei Ken sect, but she eventually died. His other good friends are Rin and Bat. By fully understanding sadness, Kenshirou was able to perform the ultimate Hokuto Shin Ken technique, the "Hokuto Musou Tensei", making him the greatest warrior.
