Born into the family of a poor ronin, in the Slums of Retsukawa city. Yamiji never had a chance. His father Kadiri was a half assed acholholic sell sword, who found jobs as a strong arm collector for local gangs. One night after a long day of working his shameful job and a longer evening of drinking Kadiri came home to find his wife in bed with his brother. Kadiri crept up on them as they went through the throws of passion. Muttering the word betrayal he cut both their heads off as they looked up…

Yamiji walking into the room witnessed what had happened. His fathered turned to him and with one perfect strike cut his son across the eyes. Then turned the blade on himself Yamiji wandered in the streets for 2 days until he was met by a kind old man named Master Shari Hisomu. Hisomu took Yamiji home, gave him a room, cleaned his wound, nursed him back to health and began to teach him to deal with being blind. Helping the boy to open his 3rd eye. Hisomu gave him 2 sets of clothes one for studies, one for work.

Yamiji was on his feet, alone, working in Hisomusama’s garden within 3 weeks. Shortly after that Hisomu began to teach Yamiji the art of the Bladed chain. One day Hisomu brought home this Snot nosed little punk named Nekura, He’s smelled like a pig sty on a hot day. He didn’t like sharing his room with some kid but something about him touched Yamiji’s heart. He figured he’d take him under his wing like a big brother. They became inseparable and worked hard on Master Hisomu’s garden everyday, studying the wisdom of the ancients and the martial art in the evening

One day Hisomu went to the market and never returned home. Yamiji knew something was wrong…in the 16 years he had been there Master Hisomu had never been late. Yamiji and Nekura went to look for him. Before arriving Yamiji knew something was wrong… he could hear the crowd, he could smell the blood. Nekura rushed off into the crowd, he came back and grabbed Yamiji telling him master was dead…the man who taught him everything he knew was gone…all he had left was Nekura… Nekura and Yamiji walked home and finished their masters dream garden. Nekura and Yamiji swore a blood oath to find their beloved Hisomu’s killer. Nekura and Yamiji continued training harder than ever becoming like a single killing machine, they became sponsored and entered the S.D.L. following rumors that Hisomu’s killer is a contender in the fighting sport.

Kyoshi insei is a weapon to be feared, a large spinning blade attached to a long chain. The blade it self can cut down a small oak tree with no problems. Razor sharp and mechanically spinning at High speeds it cuts armor like paper. Yamiji’s Mekurauchi technique is simple. His senses are heightened, including his 6th sense; he seems to almost be able to read his enemy’s mind. Yamiji is far from blind on the battle field. Swinging and hurling the blade he can tie his opponents up in the mess of chains with easily and step in for the final blow. Pity for those who pity the blind man
