Formerly known as “Hitokiri Battousai”, an assassin used to overthrow his abusive government.
After countless assassinations, his group successfully took over the goverment. But at what cost? Kenshin struggles to retain his “happy-go-lucky” personality after committing so many murders, including the love of his life. He has chosen to leave his country as a wanderer (Rurouni) to find himself and attone for all the death he has caused during his teen years. He is marked with an x-shaped scar on his left cheek that may never heal. Some say it’s a cursed scar, a reminder of his choices to blindly kill anyone for another man’s ambitions.
He fears that if he kills one more person, that he might permenantly revert to his old hitokiri days; an emotionless whirlwind of death. Ten years later, at the age of 28, Kenshin finds his old friend Renaldo at Newport.
