Tohma was the other
son of the great samurai legend, the fantastic Kuki, and in order to live
up to his heritage, Tohma trained everyday since he was very young in order
to become a true samurai one day. However, his true intentions were far
from being closely similiar to that of a real samurai. Hungry for power
and strength, Tohma always seeked more and more, despite being an already
incredible swordsman. In his eternal quest for more power, Tohma became
irrational and totally maniacal. Ignoring the warnings of his brother Seishiro
and his fellow sparring partners, Tohma set his sight on one thing: the
Blade of the Flaming Sun of his father, that was said to grant incredible
strength to its owner. One night, Tohma stole the sword from its resting
place, and after being witness of its demonic power, he decided to test
it...on his own father. After killing him with ease, Tohma departed on
a journey to destroy the souls of the worthiest warriors.
His quest led
him to be prosecuted by the Bafuku government, so he decided to hide out
in a local Buddhist temple in the middle of the forest. There he met a
fair maiden called Mikoto, whom he didn't pay
much attention, but accepted her in his travel. Their journey finally arrived
at the prison island of Riten Kyo. Tohma and Mikoto proved to be more than
powerful enough than your regular grunt, which caught the eye of the criminal
stageleader of Riten Kyo, the elderly old man, Oboro.
Soon enough, Tohma became the most feared warrior of the Razor Trio, and
the main extermination goal of the Bafuku government.
