As the youngest son of Sojiro Shimada, the master of the Shimada ninja clan, Genji lived a life of luxury and privilege. He had little interest in the family’s business, and although he excelled at and enjoyed his ninja training, he spent most of his time pursuing a playboy lifestyle. Many within the clan considered the carefree Genji to be a dangerous liability, and they resented his father for coddling and protecting him. Following the clan leader’s untimely death, Genji’s older brother , Hanzo, demanded that Genji took a more active role in their late father’s empire. Genji refused, enraging Hanzo. The tension between the brothers built to a violent confrontation that left Genji on the verge of death. Only through the intervention of the dragon spirit was Genji able to survive.
As time passed, Genji felt increasingly at war with himself. He was scared of himself and could not come to grips with what he had become. He eventually abandoned the clan and wandered the world in search of meaning. He drifted for many years before crossing paths with the monk Karma. Though Genji initially rejected Karma’s wisdom, the benevolent monk would not be deterred. In time, Karma became his mentor, and under the monk’s tutelage, Genji reconciled his dual existence as both man and spirit. He learned to accept that although he had a spirit inside him, his human soul was intact, and he came to see his new form as a gift and a unique strength.
Now, for the first time in his life, Genji was free. Even he could not say where his path would ultimately lead.
Eventually, Genji joined The Scarlet Brotherhood, and the rest, as they say, is history.
