INU & SARU - Kuro no Kenshi Kengo (youth edition) & Shishimaru

Character Brief:

“What I can do is to trust that my belief is a righteous one, and fight for it. We live in a despicable world where the strong culls the weak without a pang of sympathy. I shall end such world with my sword, and with my life if needed be.”
- Kengo/ Kuro No Kenshi (as a youth) from the Shin Clan of the Inu Tribe

Kengo is a descendant of the Shin Warrior Clan from the Inu Tribe. He is one of the most complicated characters from the Inu & Saru storyline. 

Kengo’s father is friends with Kensei from the Saru Tribe. When the war broke out, Kensei promised his pal to protect his loved ones. However, tragedy struck one step ahead, and the only life Kensei could saved was the son of his deceased friend. 

To protect the child, Kensei hid the orphan’s identity. He named the boy “Kengo” ("Kengo" means a sword with will or a sword of insight.) and treated him as an apprentice. He eventually lectured Kengo all his sword moves.

Nevertheless, when Kengo grew up, he accidentally discovered his true identity that he is actually a descendant of the Inu Tribe. (He found his broken Inu mask inherited from his deceased fatherUpon the discovery, he readily decided to join the Inu Tribe’s rebels to free his people. Because he wore a dark outfit, he came to be known as “Kuro No Kenshi.” 

*Kengo is the only character who owns both the Inu & Saru masks
*Kengo’s facial scar was given by his master Kensei

Like Kengo, Shishimaru was also adopted by Kensei during the war, and it was trained with Kengo together.  It has learned the “Shikoken Justsu” which can strike a powerful attack on its enemy. When Kengo decided to join the rebels, Shishimaru followed his footsteps.

*Shishimaru carried the Mystical Artifact Bone Sword Onikiri inherited from the Inu Tribe.
