Childhood name: Hotei

Since he was a child, Kojiro had loved to learn. From the lore of the Tao, to the art of the sword, Kojiro sought out knowledge almost as if it was obsession. However, he began to hear whispers from a Kami, telling him knowledge he had never heard before. In fact, it sounded suspiciously like Maho, a forbidden form of magic. While he knew he should leave it alone, he also found that he simply could not ignore this avenue of knowledge. This required learning how to keep a secret as well, however, which proved difficult at first. Luckily, he is a fast learner, and while he has never actually attempted to use Maho himself, he finds the ideas behind it fascinating, and has managed to hide this fact from all others. At least, as far as he knows. However, his studies have recently been broken, as in the last few weeks he has begun to see a specter while alone. Initially scared, he realized after one encounter that it was the ghost of an ancestor, though one he did not recognize immediately. The ghost told him that he must enter the upcoming tournament, though he would not expand on why. At first, Kojiro ignored the ghost, for though he respects his ancestors, he could not allow anything to interrupt his studies. This proved to be a poor choice, as bad fortune seemed to follow his for a few days, until he agreed to speak to his parents about a sponsorship for the tournament. It took much cajoling, but he was able to convince them at last that the knowledge and experience gained would be invaluable, and that it was finally time for him to take the step into manhood.
