Name: Kino Shuren
Weapon of Choice: His own fighting style as well as his own special weapon: Fox Fire. This is a strange fire that is unique to his devil fruit. It doesn't burn hot but it is incredibly hard to put out.
Attack List Theme: Things coming in sets of up to nine
Six Paths: A blindingly fast barrage of punches
Lucky Clover's Hands: A deceptive attack. It seems like a basic punch. However, a slight of hand allows him to insert one of his fox fire orbs into his hand and smashes it into his target, igniting it as he pulls back.
All Humors: A leg sweep intended to trip the opponent
Every Base: A series of four roundhouses, linked one after another. However, Kino often gets dizzy after this attack so he doesn't do it more than once in a great while.
Triforce: Kino throws three fox fire orbs at his opponent in a straight row.
Traits: Kino likes tricking people. His laugh is also different: "Fihihahahahaha!"
Yes. The Kitsune-Kitsune fruit. It is a mythical
zoan class and as such grants Kino two additional forms (for now...)
. In his hybrid form, he grows larger, as normal. He sprouts silky silver fur and a single tail (for now...)
. In his full change form, he turns into a very large, silver fox. It doesn't have any additional powers now but it may grow in strength later.
Basic Bio: Kino grew up on Nine Tree Island, an island located deep inside the Grand Line. The island earned its name from the nine huge trees that grow along the outside of the island. They ring a large plateau growing in the center of the island. The plateau is home to most of the islands population, although a few eccentrics live in the trees. It is also home to a great secret. Unbeknownst to almost every non-native, there is a secret, underwater tunnel located under the island that leads to the center. Even if someone could find it, it is unlikely they could find their way through the maze of roots that grow through the tunnels. The ones who do know about it are the city council, a select few families, and the neighboring mermaids and fishmen.
Nine Tree Island has long held a secret pact with their nearby allies. The trees that surround the island deposit a strange mineral in the dirt at the bottom of their roots. When used to make an alloy with steel, the mineral allows the resulting alloy to be almost completely rust-resistant and much lighter. However, it is almost impossible for air-breathing humans to get enough of it to use it. So, years ago, an agreement was made. The humans would trade with the mermaids and occasional friendly fishman and, in exchange, they would shelter their non-human partners from any slaving vessels.
Kino was born into one of the few families who knew where the minerals were coming from. He grew accustomed to the sight of the other races. Unfortunately, he didn't realize why the secret was so dangerous. He accidentally let it slip to one of his friends, who told their father. That man happened to be a fisherman and they had all happened to have a bad few years. In fact, several of them were in danger of losing their houses. So they made a dark plan. One night a large boat belonging to a world noble, as well as several slaver ships, made port at the island. Everyone was nervous but only a few people knew why they were there. Well, for a few minutes. The noble, arrogant as always, made it clear. Kino's family attempted to get to the resting mermaids and fishmen to warn them but to no end. Somehow, the world noble had gotten their before them. Kino's family, as well as anyone else who resisted, were killed on the spot. The fishmen were killed as well but the mermaids were taken as slaves.
Kino did not share his family's fate. Luckily for him, he had been ill that day and had been home in bed for the entire event. A distant relative had been visiting and managed to drag a young Kino from the house before it was burned to the ground as an example. The relative was a trader and took Kino from the Grand Line to his home. For weeks, Kino raged and wept at the injustice that had taken place. Eventually he vowed that he was going to gather enough strong people to remove the world nobles from power. To that end, he trained every day. Believe it or not, he actually managed to find, not steal, the devil fruit, although the circumstances behind its appearance are unknown to him. He simply found it in a box when it floated to shore.
In actuality, the devil fruit was more important than he would ever know. The previous owner of the box had obtained the fruit at great expense but pirates had attacked him. They had been following the path the fruit had taken and had spent months tracking it down. Unfortunately, they met more resistance than they expected. The pirates took heavy damage and their victory was pyrrhic. When they searched the ship, they found the corpse of the owner and a note informing them that the devil fruit had been thrown overboard during the start of the battle and it was now lost forever. Well, lost to them anyway.
