Kenshin is a wandering swordsman who vowed never to kill and always to protect with his reversed blade sword (sakaba to). He has long red hair, purple eyes, and an "x" shaped scar on his left cheek. He used to be one of the best killers in pre-meiji Japan but has since then reformed. Now he rather enjoys being the family man and occassionally using his technique to help those in need. Kenshin has made a lot of friends since he settled in Kamiya dojo. He is very kind to his friends and always puts them before himself. He also cooks, cleans, and takes care of kids really well.
