Ken Masters

"Bring it on. I'm ready for ya'!"

Despite coming from a rich American background, Ken Masters is known to be more than just a simple businessman. Ken's silver spoon upbringing proved to be little benefit when he was sent at a young age to train under Gouken's tutelage; it was there that he met Ryu, who would grow to be a lifetime friend. Unlike his quiet and soft-spoken training companion, he tends to favor bold, aggressive approaches; the yang to Ryu's yin. His spin on Ansatsuken techniques focuses on powerful melee strikes, earning particular acclaim as the undisputed master of the Shoryuken. Confident enough in his skills to rest comfortably on his laurels as champion of the US Martial Arts Tournament, he wanders the world as a jetsetter, occasionally testing his might in martial arts competitions -- but only to keep his skills honed for potential rematches against Ryu. Arrogant and brash, Ken nonetheless has a heart of gold, and fights with honor at all times.

Style:Ansatsuken
Signature Move:Shoryuken -- PHYSICAL ENERGY
Signature Ability:CHARISMA -- ATTUNE

Background

Masters Enterprises: At least two generations ago, the company that would eventually come to be known as Masters Enterprises began with a hotel and a dream. Through creative application of funds gained and global expansion, the Masters Suites Hotels eventually blossomed into Masters International, a worldwide trade and travel organization. By the time Ken Masters was born, Masters International was growing alongside him. When the time came for him to take over, Masters International had become one of biggest corporations in the world, spreading it's wings into almost all areas. Frequently coming in at the #2 spot in the rankings, just beneath the Kanzuki Corporation, Masters International continues to expand and reach as many markets as it can. Now, with esteemed professional fighter Ken Masters at the helm, the corporation seems primed and ready to make a helluva lot more noise as Ken has taken to rebranding it as Masters Enterprises.

Masters Enterprises has expanded into a variety of areas. As a huge umbrella corporation, there are many subsidiaries and companies that fall beneath the organization's vast network.

Masters Suites Hotels & Resorts: The hotel chain that started it all, the Masters Suites is a global five star hotel chain that boasts locations the world over. With stellar service and a resort style atmosphere the Masters Suites are more of an experience than a place to lay your head during your travels. Masters Suites prides itself on being more than just a hotel, it's a lifestyle.

Masters International: A direct connection to the Masters Suites, Masters International incorporates the travel and trade that Masters Enterprises provides for the United States of America. A global powerhouse in trade, Masters International provides the United States with a high percentage of trade through both air and sea channels. In addition to trade, Masters International focuses on travel and tourism, providing global transit via Rising Dragon Airlines.

Masters Entertainment: With the coming of the new age and the keen mind of Ken Masters keeping his finger on the pulse of the world, Masters Entertainment was born. Encompassing his entire media conglomerate, Masters Entertainment provides various avenues into movies, television and sports entertainment. Masters Entertainment is the driving force behind the fight fandom convention event: Sho-Ryu-Con. In addition, Masters Entertainment is a well known sponsor of the United States Martial Arts Tournament and the World Warrior Tournament. On the social media front, Masters Entertainment has stepped up to the plate by creating FightBook, a way for fighters to connect with each other and their fans. They've also created Stage Select, a social media app for fighters to use to set up exhibition matches against each other, all around the world.

Masters Foundation: The Masters Foundation is a charitable organization akin to things like the Red Cross and other American based associations built upon helping the world in times of crisis. The Masters Foundation is a non-profit organization that prides itself on helping the world become a better place. They host many events, fund-raisers, blood drives, telethons and more all in the hopes of their being a brighter tomorrow than today. The Masters Foundation also provides things like scholarships and grants in both athletics and academics to those in need.
