Ishirou is a rugged Tian man who appears much older than he is, with graying hair worn in a ponytail and a perpetual scruffy beard. His clothing and armor are well kept and clean, but obviously of low quality. Only his sword, a beautiful katana given to him by a member of the Aspis Consortium to ensure his loyalty (and to increase the perceived debt he owes the group), has any real value. Ishirou is rightfully protective of it, as it is his only material link to his cultural heritage.
