Roth

A teenage Ronin out to make a name for himself.

0 · 358 views · located in The Frozen Pines

a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by R0NlN

Description

Full name: Roth Ushiro

Roth is dressed in typical, modest clothing. His wide eyes are a gentle shade of hazel, his smile is youthful and easy-going. His hair is jet black and wild, his skin slightly tanned, his jaw straight and defined, and he has calluses running along the insides of his palms and at a point above his thumb and index finger on his right hand.

He is almost always seen with his katana, tucked neatly into the belt in his jeans. This is Roth's most distinguishable feature.

Personality

Roth is hotheaded, young and rash. He's ready to take on the world and doesn't have the slightest clue on how to do it. He is friendly, laid-back, outgoing and often flirtatious. While he enjoys a good conversation and the company of a friend, he refrains from becoming too close to any one person. He is a Ronin, a wandering, master-less Samurai.

While not a peacekeeper, and certainly not a hero, Roth maintains a decent sense of right and wrong. His code of Bushido demands he uphold his honor, and as a result he'll do what good he can if the opportunity presents himself. Aside from that, Roth usually minds his own business, and certainly won't go out of his way to do a good deed.

A side rarely seen, Roth is fully capable of displaying great rage, anger, fury and sadness. It takes a considerable amount of emotional assault to bring Roth to such terms, and hasn't been done for a long while.

Equipment

Roth is only human. He has no special powers or supernatural abilities. He has trained all his life in the art of Araki Mujinsai Ryu, in it's modified sister version, Araki Jinketsu Ryu, and in various forms of martial arts, particularly the Korean art of Kuk Sool Won, and the Israeli self-defense system of Krav Maga. He's also been raised to wield a pistol with both hands, and is a decent shot. While skilled with a gun or without a weapon at all, Roth is still most powerful with his katana in his hands, his speed and power unmatched by many prominent artists of his time.

His katana is modified and hand-made specifically to his grip. In accordance to Araki Jinketsu Ryu, it's forged of one of the strongest metals in the universe: Impervium, as opposed to traditional steel. It's carefully tucked into his black silk belt around his jeans, acting as an Obi to keep his Saya from falling, whether he walk, sprint, crawl, or even swim.

History

As a baby, Roth was abandoned and found by an aged Japanese immigrant: “Miggy” Ushiro. One of the last direct descendents of the famed Samurai, Araki Mujinsai, Miggy raised and trained the boy as his own. Miggy was the only father Roth ever had, and the only person Roth has ever truly loved. Having been raised in Japan, and (as a direct descendant of the Araki family) taught the sacred and most secret forms of Araki Ryu, Miggy passed the knowledge down to Roth, training him from infant to teen without ceasing. Miggy also taught Roth his own Ryu, based off of Araki Ryu, “Araki Jinketsu Ryu”, designed for combat in the modern day and age. It involved more use of speed and versatility (for opponents with firearms), watching the opponents eyes to see in what direction they’ll shoot their gun, anticipating their attacks and movements, and using whatever object once could get a hold of to defend oneself with. It also involved forging blades of much stronger material then steel: impervium.

For all his fatherly love and training, Miggy was an alcoholic. His frequent drunkenness got him trouble one day with a local mob, and he was shot dead on his way home. Without a father, without a home, without a master, Roth became a Ronin. He wanders Wing City, not really sure what he's after. A good fight? A strong friend? A deep love? Roth doesn't know, but he's sure as hell ready to find out.

So begins...

Roth enters Gambit's bar for the first time, smiling grandly, hazel eyes washing with excitement and curiosity. His left hand instinctively finds the hilt of his katana. He walks carefully through the bar, observing the many patrons and various faces. He approaches the counter, briefly unsure what to do next

Roth notices Angelo, dressed in his kimono. He stiffles a laugh, realizing of course, that Angelo was, obviously, a man. Still, he walked into the bar as if he'd been here before. Perhaps this one could help him. Roth slowly approaches the man, his left hand thumbing the hilt of his katana. He speaks loudly enough, his voice smoothed over with rash youthfullness, "Excuse me...uh...sir?"

Roth notices Angelo's uncomfortability with his katana. He quickly takes his hand off the hilt of his sword disarmingly. He smiles again, speaking warmly, "It's my first time in here. Do you know if there's anything good to eat in this place?"

Roth nods. This man seemed friendly enough, "recomend any item in particular?" He looks over at Jared and Cornelia, he smiles, as if embarresed. "Can you? I'm sure I'd appreciate it."

Roth raises an eyebrow at the strange group. This was certainly an odd beggining. He takes his tongue out of the side of his cheek and speaks, "Uh...well I'm um...nice to meet you all, incarnates and...incarnates. You can call me Roth."

Roth looks over at Yukiko and the armed men warily, his thumb brushing along the hilt of his katana, tucked neatly into his Obi belt. He nods over to Angelo, "curious uniform. A kimino is worn by Japanese women. And if this one was made in the Tokugawa period like I suspect, it definately doesn't belong in any war."

Roth nods, he glances over at Yukiko and her guard once more, watching or any sudden movement. What the hell did she mean saying she wanted to "fuck with someone", and why did she look at Angelo when she said it? He half-whispers to Angelo, quiet enough so as not to be heard by others, "Do you know who she is?" He asks, nodding towards Yukiko.

Roth groans a bit. Were they speaking Japanese? Roth knew only enough Japanese to cover the Katas for Araki Mujinsai Ryu, he couldn't speak it fluently. Still, they certainly were doing something. Roth speaks to Angelo, "Keep your head down, don't look her at directly. She walks with the confidence and power of a Daimyo."

Roth raises an eyebrow. Samurai? Who was this strange man. He speaks to Jared, "I appreciate it, friend. But she's already seen us. Deliberately avoiding her might cause more trouble. You should de-activate it."

Roth turns again to Angelo, "I don't understand...how can you be from 2300 A.D. and work for Samurai? The Samurai ceased to exist sometime during the Meiji Restoration." Roth gently fondles the hilt of his katana. Well...MOST of them had at least...

Roth 's brow furrows. He peaks a glance back over at Yukiko, hoping she had diverted her attention elsewhere. He speaks again to Angelo, "That sounds cool. And...well...also kind of terrible. The traditional Samurai way of life wasn't all too pretty."

Roth winces. She was after Angelo, that much was for sure. "Come on," he nods to Angelo, "I think uh...we should bow or something." He looks over at Angelo, the man far ahead of him. Roth follows suit, slightly bowing his head, "What can we do for you, um...your Majesty?" Roth's eyes spark with curiosity, excitement, and a hint of fear.

Roth looks to Angelo, hoping the man could answer the questions she was asking. He eyes the two warriors flanking Yukiko, mentally sizing them up. His left hand once again ran the distance of the hilt of his katana.

Roth eyes shift worringly. He didn't know Angelo, but the man had been kind and friendly too him. It didn't seem like things were going his way...in fact, he could be dead by the end of the night. Roth had been getting the gist of what they were saying. Roth acts quickly, grabbing Angelo's shoulder firmly, holding a hand out to Yukiko as if to say, 'Hey, take it easy.' He speaks youthfully, his voice smoothed over with the rashness of youth, he speaks to Yukiko "Look, my friend here isn't exactly in his right mind. Please, we don't need to resort to violence. C'mon, your Majesty, I don't think killing an unarmed man would be very honorable."

Roth frowned, looking over at Acrylia. Whoever she was, she was right. Honor wouldn't save this man now. But perhaps his apology would. He looks at Yukiko, his left hand once more brushing along his katana in anticipation. If she rejected his apology, he didn't know what the hell would happen next...

Roth looks over at Acrylia, for once allowing the woman's mysterious figure to fully digest in his mind. He smiles a playful, youthful grin, "And who might you be? A pretty girl like yourself helping a couple of schmucks like us...that is, if you are a girl."

Roth laughs a bit, strangely mesmerized by the woman, "A queen, huh? Might I ask what a woman of your...," eyes her up and down, picking his words carefully, "...caliber...is doing in a place like this?" He turns to see if Angelo is enjoying the spectactle, but notices he is already gone.

Roth laughed wildly. To be flirtacious was just in his nature. He rubs the back of his neck with his hand, "My apologies then, Mistress. Er-...Majesty. Nonetheless, I thank you again for helping us. Had a fight broken out, I imagine a woman of your qualities would be quite useful."
