Name: Kenji Kobayashi (Ken)
Appearance: The half-Electopian, half-Netopian boy stands at 4'2" tall, and about 75 lbs, fairly average for his age. What isn't average about Kenji is the 10lbs or so of lean muscle he has over his peers, due to pushing his body to the limits with his karate training since he was old enough to walk. He is usually seen in a comfortable pair of black shorts, a black t-shirt with an emblem of a golden fist on it, his well-worn sneakers and karate headband (also black with a golden fist emblem on it), which his teachers remind him constantly to remove while in school. Short spikey black hair fights to burst free from the headband and his blue eyes usually glimer with intensity. Though he usually has a new bruise, scrape or scab to show off to his friends, recently fate has seen to putting his left foot in a cast.
Background: Kenji's mother is from Netopia and his father Electopia. His father is the founder of the humble Kobayashi school of karate and decided as soon as little Kenji was born healthy that he would be it's heir. He idolized his father and faithfully trained every day, if for nothing more then to win his attention and affection. It could have been a classic case of parent choosing their child's future, but fortunately for Ken he grew to love it.
Personality: Forward and honest to a fault, Kenji simply sees lying or beating around the bush to be a waste of time. He does tend to be nieve, though his accepting and forgiving attitude has won him several friends. Nothing frustrates him more then being told he can't do something due to his age, size or experience. He sees every rejection, failure or dismissal as a personal challenge to overcome, often to the point of obsession. He usually wakes each morning at dawn for a couple hours of training and conditioning before school. His latest frustration comes from his broken foot, preventing him from training and forcing him to find a new outlet.
PET Modifications: Sturdy black case with a gold stripe down the side and straps on the back to allow his PET to be worn on his forearm, which he got back when he had to move around using a pair of crutches. Infrared and wireless ports are included to allow for his Navi to jack-in without him having to use his hands most of the time.
