Kozmic Katana - A charcater Background

      The sounds of his running footsteps in the sand softly merged with
the sound of the waves crashing to the Okinawa shore. The new morning
sun began its slow rise over the ocean horizon. Richard Kozumikku's
face showed only the concentration and determination of one who was
used to long early morning runs and daily workouts.
      Nothing on his face revealed his growing concern over the upcoming
ceremonies. As the youngest Kendo Senshuken, since the world war of his
grandfather's youth, he would be taking on a great mantle of power and
responsibility.  He tightened his grip on the scabbard of the Katana he
carried. Technically it wouldn’t be his until after today's ceremony
but he had been training with it for the last 4 years and he felt naked
with out it close to him.
      He rounded the last bend on the shore and saw the peaked roof of
his father's dojo ahead in the distance.  The wind brought the staccato
sounds of gunshots. Many gunshots.  The Dojo was under attack, by an
unknown group of assailants. Richard increased his pace and rushed
towards the sound of gunfire, when the building exploded.  The force of
the blast and heat could be felt from the half-mile distance away that
he was. Its force literally a physical blow to his body, staggered him
and threw off his stride.  Unable to stop his fall in time he tucked
into a roll and fell to the beach, cradling the sword so neither he nor
it got damaged.
      A slight twist while rolling enabled him to come up right on his
feet again. He lost just a little of his momentum as he headed towards
the Dojo as fast as he cold run. There were no more sounds of gunfire,
just silence.  He feared the worst as he rushed towards the devastation
that was once his home.  The intensity of the flames stopped him from
trying to rush into what was once his home and school. He saw no
movement other then the flames consuming the last of the ancient
structure.
      He fell to his knees as tears flowed down his otherwise
emotionless face.  He vowed vengeance on those who had done this
horrible act. He vowed that he would fight and stop the one from doing
this to others or die in the process. He would travel the world and go
to the lair of the enemy. He would travel to Paragon City and there he
would have justice. He was after all the wielder of the Kozmic Katana!
