The Shadow Above
Tsuruchi Bounty Hunter, Grandfather to Vicious
Father of Tsuruchi Hitomaro
Grandfather to Viscous and father of Hitomaro, Daisetsu is a man of harsh convictions and strong values. A legendary bounty hunter of his day and now much sought after teacher, he continues the traditions and the values of the code of the Wasp rather than Bushido. When Hitomaro returned from his 5 year quest overseas he was pleased to see his son again, but not thrilled about the new addition to his family. It took awhile, but he did come around after Juliana had convinced him that Hitomaro was only doing what Mantis do best, forging his own destiny. Albert proved proficient at the forge and saw why his son had fallen for the fiery woman Juliana, he has since lovingly called her Bakuchiku (firecracker). He sees in her a strength known by few and a respect for tradition that few gaijin have, and that’s why he has accepted her and her’s in his home.
When Vicious became of age, Daisetsu became sensei and was impressed at how quick his grandson was at picking up the skills being taught. He continues to be a teacher to his family.
