Hiro is in many ways an unbeatable Maho-Tsukai. His lust for power is unparalled, and he will do whatever possible to advance his own goals. He will not hesitate to torture or kill any who stand in his way. Hiro’s preferred tactic is to bait and then switch enemies. He will intentionally use the lesser cult members in his cell to draw a unaware samurai to a deserted place, and then destroy them. One of his preferred tactics includes using Gift of the Maker to gain a shadowsland power that somehow is a perversion of the person he wants to slaughter.
He benefits very much from many of the norms of Rokugani society. Because Hiro is technically an Eta within the kharmic cycle he is beneath the view of the average samurai. He travels unseen with his “allies” making his movements possible, and covering for him. Because of his age, and power he is actually the leader of his Maho-tsukai cell even though it also contains real samurai. Because of this unique situation he is rarely seen as more than luggage.
Hiro has a deep hatred of those more fortunate to be born as samurai. He spent the first half of his his life working as a body burner for the crab on the wall. He slowly started to resent the work he was required to do. One day he accidently came in contact with the tainted blood of a dead oni. This caused the Kanzen to whisper to him. He instantly accepted their offer of power.
Hiro relishes any opportunity to use his knowledge of Bushido to insult, or demean the “real honor” of samurai.
