Kenuichio Harada is the illegitimate mutant son of the former Japanese crime lord Shingen Harada, ruler of the Japanese underworld and head of house Yashida. Shingen never recognised Kenuichio as his son and mastery of the clan passed to his half-sister Mariko. Kenuichio began the study of the medieval samurai martial arts and, once he mastered the disciplines, hired himself out as a modern day samurai.
