Tenryu Taketa was a strong and proud student of war. He trained hard every day; studying his literature, practicing his form, and mastering his technique. It didnt take long for Tenryu to become the top of his class. In fact, his Master recognized his natural talent early on and decided to cultivate Tenryu’s potential. Despite the extra challenges and higher expectations, Tenryu always came out successful. He won competition after competition, sparring match after sparring match. However, Tenryu’s master was not satisfied. The master expected more. Dont just win, but win quicker! Dont hit hard, but hit harder! It seemed to Tenryu that even winning wasnt good enough for his master.
In his early adulthood, Tenryu’s master approached him with a new task. It was time to take his skills to the street. Tenryu knew,this was not the way of their Dojo, but rather the wish of someone else; someone with influence over his master. Without hesitation, Tenryu accepted the mission and in the end, took a life for his master in hopes to finally be respected. Instead, he found himself shamed by his peers, disowned by his dojo and rejected by his master. Tenryu quickly came to the realization that his master was secretly involved in underground dealings with the Yakuza and selfishly used him as a tool to remove a political obstacle. Once the task was complete, Tenryu was left with the blame so his master could gain privileges and power with clean hands.
This did not sit well with Tenryu Taketa. In a blaze of anger, he stormed his master’s luxurious new home; dispatching bodyguards with a flash of his blade and charging through the halls with righteous fury at his back. He kicked down his masters door and demanded reconciliation. He shouted at his master to draw his sword and attacked. To Tenryu’s surprise, his master barely got his blade out of its sheath before he was split in two. In the midst of the blood and silence, Tenryu came to his second realization- his master was never the omnipotent warrior he believed his master was. In fact, Tenryu surpassed his master’s skill long ago. all that was left of this corpse was a legacy of shady deals, trickery, and corruption.
Unfortunately, for Tenryu Taketa, he still carries the blame of the political assassination, and now the murder of his own master. With nowhere to go, Tenryu fled to Hong Kong to hide amidst the shadows, only to be swept up in a world of corruption and chaos. Perhaps he can seek redemption here…(more recent history to come)
