Bio

The swordsman Takahasi Kenshi spent his early adulthood searching the world for worthy opponents. When the sorcerer Shang Tsung duped him into retrieving the enchanted sword Sento from the Well of Souls, the result left Kenshi sightless. Humbled but with a new sense of purpose, Kenshi vowed to rid the realms of despicable creatures like Shang. He served Earthrealm admirably in its conflict with Netherrealm. In his post-wwar travels he met and fell in love with a young Thai-American woman. Eventually Kenshi's wanderlust returned and he departed. Years later he learned the woman had been murdered - leaving their eight-year-old son in Kenshi's care. The boy's mother's murder led Kenshi to entrust his son to Hanzo Hasashi, the former Scorpion, to raise as a warrior. Kenshi promised Hanzo he would return one day to reclaim Takeda. Together father and son would hunt down the boy's mother's murderer. Meanwhile Kenshi continues his itinerant ways, occasionally helping out his friend General Blade as a consultant to the Special Forces.
