Kaijuko was originally my PC in a long running Legend of the Five Rings campaign set in the lead up to the Scorpion Clan Coup. After some prodding I ported her over to detail her search for her friend Isawa Koi, who's player introduced me to CoH.
Fulltime: The Reciprocators, The Shield of Paragon
Part time: Freedom Corps, Portal Corp
Though she now spends the vast majority of her time with the Reciprocators, Kaijuko still maintains ties to Freedom Corps as a trainer and occasional operative. Recently she has taken up a position with Portal Corp as one of their retainer Heroes.
Typically straight forward and serious. Around her friends and allies she is compassionate and understanding to a fault, to her mind everything in Paragon City is strange so tends to not be surprised by the strange and/or bizzare. Originally hailing from Rokugan, a world similar to earths medieval Japan, she is Samurai and as such follows the code of Bushido. However she has recently found herself straying from its tenets more and more often as she adapts to her new home.
All of Kaijuko's powers are the result of extensive training in her families ancestral techniques.
The name given to the two sword style for which her clan is noted. The philosophy behind Niten is to maintain a careful defense while assessing your opponent for weaknesses to exploit and then overwhelming them with a series of fast attacks from both blades. The greatest masters of the technique are literal whirlwinds of steel on the open field capable of defeating legions of lesser foes.
In the last few months she has developed the ability to create short ranged, but intense cones of wind while fighting. This seems to require intense concentration and the use of her swords, but has helped to alleviate her problem of dealing with enemies who attack from a distance.
Kaijuko has three tattoos that appear to be magical in origin: 1) An Oriental Dragon coiled around a blooming chrysanthemum - Takes up the entirety of her back, is the original tattoo though any abilities it grants are as yet unknown. 2) Bellflower - Located on her right forearm, it appeared part way through the events known as the Woot Rebellion. Kaijuko appears to be unable to explain its appearance and its powers are also unknown. 3) Clouds - Located on her stomach, they appeared after she was given an artifact known as 'The Kaleidoscope of God' by the Fae Ezaraudin. As with the other two any abilities it may bestow are unknown.
Weaknesses and Limitations
Her two most apparent weaknesses are her appalling english, and the continued reliance on her translation device it entails, and her almost complete lack of technical skills. Any mechanical or electronic device with a use and function is not blatantly obvious she will likely not be able to use properly without extensive instruction.
In combat her greatest strength is also her greatest weakness, her fighting style completely revolves around her swords. With them she is all but invincible while in close combat and it requires a Hero or Villain of several magnitudes of greater power or skill to defeat her. But without them she is no more dangerous than any other human woman who has taken a self defense class.
Can be normally found carrying her Daisho, the paired Katana and Wakazashi that marks the Samurai caste. Other than this and her issued PDA and comm unit she rarely carries anything with her.
(Somewhat long and involved, to be completed at a later date)
