"Sooo... turns out that wasn't my best idea. That's okay, I got three more."

Prize fighter. Bold adventurer. Ultimate craftsman. All these are apt descriptions of this man... maybe a decade ago. Nowadays, he lives the humble life of a loving father alongside his wife and three children... or at least attempts to. He hasn't quite left behind his younger years full of excitement behind him. In the past, he journeyed the globe and studied under both his famous father and various acquaintances to perfect his unorthodox fighting style that combines techniques based on construction work and tools with traditional ninjitsu, giving him a surprisingly diverse set of defenses and maneuvers that seem an ill fit to his bumbling - even comical - character. Well past his prime now, he still goes on flights of fancy about the good ol' days. He works as a highly skilled home improvement contractor and surprising inventor, though his bluster and occasional short-sightedness tends to bring mischief and trouble in his wake. His heart is genuinely in the right place, and he does his best to fix what he invariably sets wrong... with mixed results.

Style:Construction-Inspired Ninjitsu
Signature Move:Tools For The Job -- PHYSICAL PROJECTILE
Signature Ability:EVADE -- ESCAPE
