Moto Akio, born 2955, is the former Shateigashira and current boss of the Ryu Hasu Yakuza.
Akio is soft-spoken and cerebral, preferring to counter aggression with reason. His quiet, almost placid personality belies his keen mind. He values logic and critical thinking; despite this, he also trusts his gut instincts. This gives him a calm, composed air at almost all times. He is human, however, and his emotions will occasionally break the surface.
- 38cm blade
- 25.5cm hilt
- Akio is skilled at battojutsu, but is not limited to it. He's just as skilled, if not more, with a bare blade than when drawing, utilizing the unusually long hilt of his sword to mix up distance and keep his foe on their toes.
- The sword was a gift from Shibo; the hilt and sheath were made from a single piece of wood, with a raised crosshatch pattern carved into them to strengthen his grip on the blade.
- 2-meter chain
- 3-cm weights on either end
- H&C Wolf
- Double-barrel Shotgun
- Dual 8-round magazines
- Plasma slugs on one side
- Custom-made nail rounds (legit steel nails bonded with wax) in the other
- Cybernetic Muscles
- Replaced all muscle with cybernetic implants, allowing him to move far faster, be far stronger, and be far more durable than his age and appearance would suggest.
- About 1.5x peak human strength/speed/durability
- Battojutsu Master: Able to judge exactly how to draw his sword for a quick, graceful kill.
- High Intellect: Far more intelligent than most, Akio's brain tends to favor planning, logic, and manipulation.
- Expert Manipulator: Very good at getting people to do what he wants them to
- Misdirection Expert: Highly skilled at making people see things other than the truth
