Kazuki is a member of the Kazama ninja clan and the brother of Sogetsu and Hazuki. He wields the power of flames for his skills. He tends to act before thinking. When his younger sister Hazuki was kidnapped by Amakusa, he left his clan in order to save his sister. But in doing so, his clan ordered his brother Sogetsu to find and kill the escaped ninja. Both him and Sogetsu eventually met at Amakusa's castle. There, Kazuki defeated Amakusa and was able to save his sister. Sogetsu, on the other hand, stayed behind to fight Zankuro. Since then, he and Hazuki live a life of running from his clan. His father was killed by Yuga.

Fire + Ninja = Kazuki... and he was around way before those Avatar: The Last Airbender guys. As one of the prominent new characters introduced in Samurai Shodown 4, Kazuki has a variety of unique moves, and a hot-headed aggressive personality that compliments his "fire" theme.

IMO, his design became slightly stale (and perhaps underused) in the later Samurai Shodown games (mainly because the games themselves weren't that great), but his original appearance in SS4 was well done. His ninja attire is pretty straight-forward, which also compliments the SS series, but his stance, animations, and mannerisms are what make him stand out.
