"I will hold true to my way… no matter what."
The first few years of Kenishida's life were wrought with tragedy and torment at the hands of an unforgiving fate. It all changed with the chance meeting of a Kuroyari, and the boy's induction into the clan. The same man inspired the boy to cut his own path in life, while also cherishing every meeting, and protecting that which he desires to protect with nothing held back in reserve.
Kenishida was born on the isolated island under the protection of the Kuroyari clan; however, shortly after his birth he lost his mother. His father, unable to live without her, soon followed in a slow and silent death by the time the young child reached the age of six. He was on his own for what felt like an eternity after that, doing whatever it took to survive; such as stealing food to staying on the move near constantly. One day the young man was caught and beaten harshly, though thankfully not fatally, and left with the crush and dirty food. It was as he was scrapping it up that a man approached him. Kenishida looked up to him with weak and frighten eyes that still held an inner fire.
Sensing the fire, the man offered him a deal. A chance to change the outcome of his life by having him study under him; teaching him the skills needed to become a samurai. For five and a half years he spent countless hours teaching Kenishida the tools and skills needed to be a samurai who has adapted some of the ways of the shinobi, as well as taking care of his moral responsibility as well. He taught the youth to cherish each moment and the people he meets because fate never makes mistakes. Kenishida mentor sought a special tool in order to use as a focal point of his technique, the tool he bought for him was a "Odachi" or Japanese long sword. Kenishida is currently on the journey to master this new tool and thus he devotes a nice amount of time learning his Odachi, insides and out.
His current goals are to be ready for when the man who saved him returns and collects on that favor of his, and to advance in the ranks of Kumogakure to bring honor onto the Kuroyari clan.
Kenishida can roughly be described as a straight-forward and honest individual. He cherishes his encounters, and will often go out of his way to aid those in need. While some may call this side of his personality a weakness or a hindrance, Kenishida stands by his ways nevertheless. Honor typically comes first and foremost to him due to his upbringing as a Kuroyari, though passion may overtake this if it means protecting something important to him.
Kenishida has strawberry blonde hair, and dark eyes. His hair is combed down and always covers his right eye. He wears his forehead protector like a bandanna along with the standard Kumogakure uniform, though more formfitting and goes up to his chin.
While on a mission or an event that promises combat his body is covered with chain mail and armor from head to toe made heavy and an atypically difficult to move in, though Kenishida makes it look easy. The armor is basic japanese armor. It is black with a blue trim with the kanji of "Double Dragon" on his back. Kenishida carries an Odachi, japense long sword, either on his back or around his waist.
Kenishida has spent the vast majority of his life honing both mind and body in one form or another to better withstand the tests of life. From the Kuroyari, his official kinsmen at the age of five, Kenishida learned not only to fight upon sea and beach front, but also to bear the burden of powerful arms and armaments. While in the long run he suffered the price that all Kuroyari must bear, there are few his age can best him in terms of raw strength and taijutsu prowess. Unarmed or not, Kenishida is one to be reckon with despite what most may find of him to be weaknesses.
Beyond the basics expected out of any graduate from a shinobi academy, Kenishida knows has yet to further his studies under this branch.
Kenjutsu & Taijutsu
While Kenishida still has a long way to go before being considered a master swordsman, the boy nevertheless shows an astonishing aptitude in Kenjutsu, and somewhat to a lesser extent, general taijutsu.
Outside of the basic defenses against these techniques, Kenishida remains a complete novice in this area.
