Explanation: Considering himself to be a new age samurai, Raidese carries over some key concepts (and faults) of bushido. And though he is hidden behind a mask, he makes sure that his wonderful humor is not shrouded by it.
Weight: 200 lbs
Eyes: Brown, White/Glowing yellow when he has his mask equipped.
Hair: Dyed bright orange, Flowing/Kept in a ponytail when not wearing costume
Build: Slightly buff
Description: The outlandish appearance of Raidese is supposed to strike fear to those who find themselves opposite of him.
Street Duds: When casually strolling the streets of Milencia, Raidese is usually seen wearing blue jeans and a black leather jacket, with a plain white shirt underneath. He may also wear aviator glasses and proper headgear if he is on his motorcycle.
Costume: Raidese's uniform is almost identical to the standard-issued ones except that he has a reinforced ivory mask with a design reminiscent of a far east tiger-dragon. This mask is specially resistant to sand, ensuring Raidese's own superpower doesn't hinder his sight. Also attached to his back are a sword sheathe and a earthen jug filled with sand.
Psammokinesis [Elemental] Lv: 1 – The ability to manipulate sand seems almost secondary to Raidese's passion for swordsmanship but this is what enables his blade to stand victorious. Dust storms and sand surfing are by far his favorite applications for his powers, among other things.
Katana [Weapon] Lv: 1
The embodiment of a samurai's life. Slash, slice, parry, riposte, bladespin, omnislash; you name it, Khamen Kamen will attempt to to do it. Due to school policies, he is usually limited to a bokken however.
Memories of his childhood are a blur to Raidese. Nothing worth noting happened, at least to him. His early teenage years saw him enrolled at a community dojo over at the Culture District, under the advice of his father Nortrom. When Raidese had his first taste of competition, it was as if his entire life found purpose within an instant. He attributed most of his victories to his superior technique though his opponents claimed that something was in their eyes when they had fought the boisterous prodigy. Now he finds himself in a new proving ground, still determined to come out on top after all is said and done.
