Roth Ushino

A teenage ronin out to make a name for himself

0 · 244 views · located in The Infinite Void

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

Description

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-defence 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” Ushino. 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 Ushino returned quickly, medpack in hand. He sat next to Naoki, smiling as he ordered a round of cold sake for the both of them. The young ronin then set to work opening the medpack, retrieving the desired tools.

"Where did you learn how to wield a katana?" Roth asked as he worked. By her wavering english, Roth wondered if she had learned swordsmanship in Japan itself.

Roth Ushino laughed, talking out a metallic-looking can from the pack, the word BIOFOAM etched across the container. "Well you're right, I'm not Japanese," Roth began, "I was just raised that way." He looked over curiously as the Montesqueiu Brothers announced that they'd be taking care of orders for the rest of the night. Not one to turn-down charity, Roth quickly placed in an order for two cups of hot tea, along with two bowls of cooked fish served over white rice.

"...it was my father who taught me..." Roth said, furiously shaking the container of biofoam, "...Miggy Ushino. A direct descendant of Araki Mujinsai himself." Roth glanced up at her apologetically. "...if you don't mind..." Roth lay a finger under her wound, gently thumbing at her shirt. He couldn't put the medicine on properly with the fabric in the way.

Roth Ushino laughed, "What, I don't Japanese enough for you?" Roth smiled, gently pulling up the shirt to expose the thin slash in her stomach. "But yeah...I'm a white-guy by birth. Miggy took me in. Taught me everything he knew."

The ronin then gently sprayed the biofoam into the wound. "This stuff'll clean and seal the cut," Roth explained, "though you might have a slight scar afterwards." He moved back, placing the container on the counter before reaching for his sake.

"Still, I'm glad I didn't cut your face...," Roth said with a flirtatious grin, "...I think you're much too pretty for that." It was an awful compliment of course, but Roth's light tone was humorous and warm. In a way, he meant his words. While not drop-dead gorgeous, Naoki was beautiful in a quiet, dignified manner.

"Next time?" Roth smiled as he was poked, innocently taking a sip of his sake. He handled the choko, raising an eyebrow as she dismissed his compliment.

"I see just fine," Roth slyly quipped, "...and believe me, the corny pick-up lines will only get worse with the more alcohol I drink." With that, the ronin would take a deep swig of the choko.

"...this is a bad idea and we both know it..." Roth laughed, tongue in his cheek. Grabbing his choko, he shrugged and smiled at Naoki.

"...fine. You're on. Let's hope you drink better then you fight," Roth joked mischievously, waving the liquor in front of her.

Roth Ushino curled his knuckles around the choko, grinning widely as he brought the liquor up to his face. "...when you're ready, then..." Roth said. Unfortunately for the young ronin, he wasn't a very good drinker.

...and the alcohol had considerably negative consequences on his psyche.
