CVnU Origin: Impero

A prodigious genius born into the legendary Keijijo Clan of esoteric Japanese martial artists, Ishin Keijijo was upon birth, immediately identified as a unique individual, a class above the rest. Born with an unnaturally numerous amount of chakras erratically distributed across his body, his monstrous chi-energy was granted a fluid unimpaired flow of harmony in the young boy's body. A genius that graces the clan once every generation, Ishin's training commenced at an age earlier than traditionally dictated by the Keijijo Clan's customs. Progressing at a frightening rate, the talented toddler was without hesitation praised by his fellow clansmen as the best his generation had to offer, a rare talent, even by the naturally talented ranks of his storied clan. Taught exclusively by the secluded clan's wise elders, Ishin's dramatically growing talent allowed for the quick identification of his spiritual affinity to the element of danger and destruction, lightning. This was soon followed by the introduction of the various chakra-based techniques and martial arts that his clan became feared for practicing. However, Ishin's highly elevated rate of martial progression soon bestowed upon him an inflated ego and a snobbish sense of superiority and arrogance upon becoming a teenager.

Soon however, a powerful dose of reality was to be given to the cocky youth. Dark times of sorrow and tragedy loomed over the clan as the storied life of its aged Impero (Grandmaster), Neji, had come to an abrupt conclusion. A man once thought to be unbeatable and a god among men had sadly fallen victim to the inescapable claws of death. With this death, came a period of excessive mourning and emotional turmoil within the clan. The elders alone were unable to maintain balance as the Keijijo Clan became increasingly disorganized and unfocused, the death of one of their most celebrated Imperos had fully overwhelmed them. A year afterwards, emotional reserves had been exhausted, logic had returned and the need for a new Impero was an inevitable eventuality. The traditional Kami no Ken (God Fist) fighting tournament was after many years presented before the follow clansmen, its victor would become the undisputed leader of the fabled Keijijo Clan. Ignoring the elders' pleas and orders with apparent disinterest and teenage rebellion, Ishin had entered the tournament, arrogantly believing himself to be the future of the metaphysical martial arts clan. Set to do battle against the very elite combatants in his clan, Ishin, against his own hopes and aspirations was soundly defeated in the first round of the Kami no Ken tournament. Deemed too young to continue, he was not granted his second match and was swiftly eliminated from the tournament. Humbled and with a bruised ego due to the surprising loss, Ishin discovered within himself, the soul-scorching ambition to become the very best fighter that his clan had ever laid eyes upon, and thus, continued his rigorous training.

Thousands of years later, as the Keijijo Clan found itself immersed in a war between several other Asian martial arts clans, an adult Ishin alongside the clan's Impero, led a powerful unit of the clan's elite combatants in a legendary battle of mythological proportions. Unfortunately, though victory had been claimed, the battle resulted in the death of the longest living Impero the clan had ever had and the violent scarring of Ishin's face. With yet another Kami no Ken tournament on the horizon, Ishin's continued refinement and training of his mastered skills saw no conclusion as his new-found desire to be the messianic leader that his clan required in these dark times emerged. Entering the Kami no Ken tournament, master Ishin captivated the attention of his fellow clansmen with various virtuoso displays of his cinematic martial arts mastery and the sheer brilliance of his nigh-peerless combat prowess. Dominating the tournament unlike any who have participated in it before, Ishin was crowned as the Keijijo Clan's undisputed Impero and awarded the single iconic mask worn by every past Impero. With the consciousness, knowledge and spiritual energy of the past Imperos imbued within the mask, Ishin was granted access to a mass of wisdom and combat experience. Mysteriously though, a portion of the mask's contents remain a secret even to Ishin himself, incapable of accessing them. And unknown to all, only the clan's elders know what is being kept secret for so long, and why.

While concerned with the concealed portion of the Impero Mask, Ishin's main priority remains maintaining the prosperity and secrecy of the Keijijo Clan, as well as seeking out his own personal enigmatic goals.
