Bunji’s most striking quality are his eyes. There aren’t that many Japanese men who naturally have blue eyes, but then again, when you’re half, anything is possible. There is a hint of Asian in his skin, hair, and the slight almond shape of his eyes, but as far as the rest of him, his father’s traits won out. Bunji because of his size, on first impression, is an intimidating young man. There’s a scar beneath his right eye where a drunk had cut him with a broken bottle, and his jaw is shadowed by stubble. His dark hair is short for easy management but is capable of growing slightly past his shoulders. Overall, Bunji is a big guy, and if he looks like someone you don’t want to mess with, then maybe it was best you didn’t.Skills:
: He works as head chef at a bar and restaurant called “The Sake Garden.” His cooking skills are overqualified for such a crummy joint, but as long as it keeps the customers coming, the manager refuses to let him go. Bunji has a lot of pride in his cooking, so if you plan to be a Gordon Ramsay, you better be prepared to back up your critique not just with fair criticism, but with your fists. He prepares special meals for his sick mother.
: So he might have taken a few martial arts classes. His skills have not only made him a head chef, but also a bouncer at The Sake Garden. When drunks are getting too violent with other patrons, when there’s assault, people dissing his cooking, you can expect to get your ass thrown out. So far it hasn’t mattered how big the disturbance is, Bunji has been able to take care of it.
: Because his mother is sick, Bunji has taken on some extra duties around the house. He keeps the house clean and sanitary, smelling nice, and pretty orderly. This isn’t to say he’s OCD. He just feels that the cleaner he keeps the house, then the less likely his mother’s state will worsen. He cooks, cleans, does and folds the laundry, takes the trash out, and even keeps her entertained. It’s like a second job.
►Basic Vehicle Maintenance & Mr. Fix-It
: This is pretty self-explanatory. If the car needs to be put in a shop, then it just went beyond his knowledge. He will try to fix things that break: washing machine, dryer, etc. The last resort is paying to replace something. Money is tight. He’s pretty big on saving money.
: It makes him an excellent interrogator. He can persuade almost anybody to do what he says or to even cough-up some valuable information. It was what made him such a successful bully in school.Personality:
Bunji is going through some hard times, though he keeps that information to himself. It is no one’s business. If one manages to become friends with the guy, then they may or may not realize that there’s a lot they don’t know about him besides him working full-time at The Sake Garden. He’s a hot-head, though not quick to strike, his anger builds, and when it peaks, he can be pretty nasty. It has gotten him in trouble a few times. He’s even served a few months in prison for a guy he’s beaten the living shit out of. Doing time has made him fearful of getting arrested again for he can’t afford to leave his mother alone. One of his worst nightmares is his mother succumbing to her Leukemia.
His hardship has given him a strong and resilient personality that spills into his mental and physical nature. He is hard-working and isn’t one to quit or turn-tail and run. Bunji can be as stubborn as a mule, and as aggressive as a bull. He’s just one of those guys who you may just have to fight to earn his respect.Backstory:
Bunji was born to Nathan Matheson and Matsumi Sagawa. Nathan was a young businessman from England, making deals with engineering firms in England when he came across Bunji’s enchanting mother. She was a tailor at a store that sold business attire, and she often tailored Nathan’s suits for him while he was in town. Having fallen in love with her, one month he took her to England, and it wasn’t long before Matsumi was with child. She stayed in a nice, upscale apartment in Tokyo, while her husband was darting about Japan. Bunji was born one winter day and that was when his life as well as his mother’s changed. He was a bad boy growing up, bullying the other kids, and it became a bigger problem when he hit his growth spurt in Junior High. He was bigger than most of the kids there, which registered to him that he was better. His grades were always passable, but nothing impressive, which was unacceptable to his parents. Mid-way through Junior High, his mother fell sick and he was too immature to realize how sick she really was. He was on the verge of being expelled when his mother was suddenly hospitalized. The shock of nearly losing his mother was what made him dramatically turn over a new leaf. His grades went up and he lost a bit of the bully reputation, even though it still followed him to high school.
There was too much financial difficulty for Nathan to deal with, and he didn’t like having a son who never listened. One day, when Bunji was looking for a job to help with the cost of his mother’s medical bills, he saw his father with another woman, an American woman. He was quick to confront him, and rather not have his mother face any more stress than she was already under, Bunji told his father to leave and he would keep his disloyalty a secret. Bunji had him and his mother move out of the fancy apartment to a quieter prefecture on the city outskirts. He managed to graduate high school with honors, but since hasn’t even looked at college. His mother’s health takes up majority of his time.Sailor/Knight Identity:
The Storm Lord; Lightning Champion; and Jupiter Knight.Heroic Appearance:
Two large gauntlets are fastened up to his deltoids and boots to his knees. His weapons allow him to channel an astonishing amount of electricity to be charged and released in concussive blasts. Black trousers are held at his waist by his transformation belt and buckle. Two belts cross at his chest with one metal plate to guard his heart. The rest of him is exposed, his gauntlets and boots being his primary shields as well as weapons.
: Bunji will summon lightning that can trap one to multiple opponents in an electrical cage. For as long as he keeps his arms outstretched, for the enemy to break out of the cage, he or she would have to break the strength of Jupiter, ie. his strength.
: Bunji’s ability to appear and disappear. In combat, the appearance of this attack makes it look like the knight is warping about the battlefield for it mimics the flashing of lightning. When really, the warrior is moving too fast for the eye to keep up with and his strike attempts are when he’s made briefly visible.
►Shocking Fist/Shocking Kick
: When Bunji charges his gauntlets or boots, the concussive shock that can follow if an opponent were struck could stop a person’s heart, blow a hole in their body, or temporarily paralyze them depending on the enemy’s level of durability. Popularly, the attack has been a finisher and a paralyzer.Powers:
Because Bunji’s father was British, his English has a UK accent.
One of Bunji’s dreams is to go to a culinary school and open his own restaurant that serves good and affordable food. He secretly takes pleasure in seeing the joy his cuisine brings—though he’ll never admit it.
