Gama Kurogane, born as an aspiring Samurai ever since he heard about his father's amazing adventures and his brother set out. Born on an unknown island Gama was brought to Shimotsuki village with his brother by Samurais who dropped him off with someone he did not know to become his parent. His brother despised the ninjas with his natural Samurai blood flowing through him and incredible gifted talent he set out to the Grand Dojo to learn under Rikuu Salvatore at the age of seven. His brother, Jack Kurogane was a gifted swordsman and five years older then Gama.
Gama set foot in the Dojo for the first time, with the polished floors and an incredible amount of room at the age of three. It was a sight Gama would never forget, everyone practising their own martial arts and training as hard as they could. His brother was eight at the time and told Gama to take a bokken and set to work. Every day since the age of three Gama went to the Dojo with his brother at six am and trained until complete darkness while hearing the crickets chirp outside and the owls howl they knew it was time to head to their home. Every night they spoke to one another as they relaxed after a tough day of work and sparring. They spoke about their dreams and their ideas and fantasies of becoming Samurais and fighting the best in the Ninja World. They already thought of their squads and whom they would fight and what kind of people they were awaiting.
Four weeks passed since Gama's third birthday and Jack noticed that unlike him Gama was not nearly as muscularly developed in his upper body and figured that it should come in time, however after consulting with Rikuu Salvatore he realized that Gama should focus on what he could for the time being and work on his upper body from time to time. Making Gama run laps and do sprints none stop everyday was what Jack loved doing, watching his brother run constantly developing incredible leg muscles and speed while Jack took practice swings on dummies and worked out.
Gama has made incredible progress in speed and was considered faster then everyone on the island his age which was four at the time. He could run and move as fast as move teenagers on the island of martial artists which was astounding for everyone around him, especially his brother Jack was proud of him. Gama began working on his upper body by making five thousand practice swings a day on a dummy with a bokken made out of heavier wood then the average. He tones his muscles more and also kept working on increasing his speed.
Gama loved working along side his brother to get stronger and had daily spars with him always ended up being bruised but in the end he found it worth it. On his fifth birthday his brother decided to step it up and made Gama double his work to get stronger and told him that at the rate he was going at Gama would never be able to set out to sea. Ever since hearing those words from his brother Gama hasn't stopped training. Working every day to become stronger and untouchable, Gama began to become a blur in his movements becoming unpredictably fast and able to land blows on peers twice his age. He realized that strength wasn't his thing and that he relied heavily on speed. He developed that and used it to his advantage working on his talents to become his main source of strength and power.
The day Gama turned six his brother and him were celebrating on a beach and finally got a real Katana as a birthday present and then right after was when his brother broke Gama astounding news. “Father is recruiting me. He will be here at dawn tomorrow and this is an opportunity I can not pass. ” Sweat began to build up on Jack's forehead. “He is part of a feared pirate crew, and Gama remember our dreams. I cannot let mine go away, I am only eleven but father believes in me and that I am capable and ready to take on the task of becoming a pirate.” A tear welled up in Jack's eye which was something Gama has never seen. A saddening milestone in Kurogane Gama's life as he saw Jack get ready to set off. He himself of course has tears welling up and began sweating then suddenly out of nowhere and without any idea of what he just said Gama sprouted “If you are ready to be a Samurai. Fight me with real swords...”
A challenge his brother could not refuse, shocking. His brother stared at him with a shocked look upon his face and then slowly fear crept in. “Gama... I don't think you are ready to face a real blade. It is a scary sight especially in a real fight.” He said his eyes looking down at the scabbard in his hands with a shadowy look upon his face. “Brother, I have never landed a blow on you. If you are going to leave, I want to do so first to make sure I have what it takes to one day go out to see as you have. I will not give up until then and one day when we are full fledged fighters we will meet again.” A determined look crossed Gama's face. No doubt, no fear, no regrets. Gama was ready, “Looks like I have no choice but to teach a little chap like you a lesson.” Jack drew his katana as it glimmered in the light from the sunset upon the beach. He had both his hands on the sword in a Chuudan stance as he faced off with Gama. “I can not lose to you. My pride, my life, everything I have worked for. I will not lose to you until we meet in the Ninja World... Even then, you will not best me.” Gama moved back and drew his brand new sword. Sweat began to build on Gama's arms as he took a step towards his brother. A mere six year old, against an eleven year old. Both have bested adults in the dojo of different levels. Gama shifted forwards slightly with his sword in both hands trembling slightly in anxiousness of what was about to happen.
His brother moved first and came down with a vertical slash aimed at Gama's forehead. Without hesitation and letting his insticts take over he moved to the left pivoting his body on his leading foot which happened to be his right. He pivoted to his right moving his left foot behind him and his brothers blade brushed against his front cutting off a loose piece of fabric on his shirt. He keept pivoting on his right arm and lashed out with it by quickly stabbing his brother aiming to puncture him in his left shoulder as his blade was swiping down. His brother instinctively released his sword with his left arm while moving his shoulder backwards and rolling it to the side to avoid his Gama's stab. Blood slide down Gama's sword. He nicked his brother slightly getting a gentle cut on his left shoulder. Gama smiled in content and then without a word sheathed his sword and bowed to his brother. “I will see you in the Ninja World brother.” With that farewell he left.
The next morning Gama got up and heard screaming throughout the village and saw pirates terrorizing a woman. He knew that he would not have a choice, he drew his blade and charged the first pirate he saw.
The pirate looked at him and chuckled as Gama reached five foot ranged, the pirate rose his sword to pump out his chest as he was boasting and chuckling as Gama moved swiftly towards him. Once within three step range the pirate began lowering his sword, too late Gama flashed in a blur reached the pirate before he could lower his sword Gama slashed him brutally across the chest creating a deep slash. The pirate did not fall. He chuckled instead with a crazy killing look upon his face “Kiddo you messed with the wrong person. You could have messed me up. Instead you'll be going to hell, next time don't deal with grown up's affairs.” The pirate's sword was dripping in blood as he looked down on Gama and swung down with all his might, Gama sidestepped. The pirate then began to launch a flurry of slashes vertical and horizontally to keep Gama moving back, until his back reached a wall of a nearby burning house.
Gama began to panic knowing his life was on the line, the pirate slashed down diagonally aimed at Gama's right shoulder and down to his left hip. Smoke began to cloud one anothers vision as the stench of burnt corpses hung in the air. The pirate miscalculated his swing too far to Gama's left. Gama took full advantage screaming without even thinking and moved swiftly to the left to avoid the strike then moving forward sword in both his hands and stabbed the pirate while moving as fast as he could towards him. Blood dripped down Gama's sword as it pierced the pirate due to his momentum and and power behind his final thrust. “Y..Yo..You son o.. of.. a..” The pirate tried to mumble a few last words as blood pored out of his mouth before falling hopelessly to the earth with Gama's sword stuck in him. Gama fell over as well exhausted and the adrenaline wore off. The village was destroyed and smoke was all over the place as he shut his eyes hearing screams of terror which he knew, he would never forget.
Gama woke up feeling a sea breeze and a rocking motion. He felt a great deal of wood beneath him and tried desperately to look around. He never felt so bad, he realized that the pirate must have nicked him more then a few times as he felt his weight go down on a few extremely painful areas which the pirate could have struck. Using all his strength and determination combined with his curiosity to see where he was he poked his head up and pushed with everything he had in his arms.
Gama saw everything as a massive wind struck him in the face, he was blinded by the sunlight on a small fishing boat and a man was sitting right over him and began to chuckle. “You put up quite a fight against those pirates eh lad?” The man had an odd tonality to himself with a regularly pitched voice. “Who the hell are you?” Gama said without thinking, suddenly putting a great deal of pain in his dry throat as he felt his arms begin to strain for holding up his upper body to look at the man. “You don't know me? Eh? I guess I'll introduce myself. I am Sachi Conbostia, a carpenter, when I saw you on the island burning everywhere and take down such a fearsome pirate I had no choice but to swoop you up before those other pirates got to you. Ain't you lucky I was there boy? Anyhow how old are you son?” The man shined positivity even Gama could feel it in his current state. Gama pushed himself up and rotated his body so he could be lying on his back with his head resting against the wall of the small boat. “I am six years old.” He replied with a fierce and determined look across his face despite being out of breath from the former action. The wood he was lying against felt nice and smooth, extremely comfortable and far better then he expected. As if the Sachi read his mind he said “I made this boat myself. Polished and sanded the wood until it was so smooth that a baby would find this place comfortable, although it dosen't make the best boat.” He chuckled. “I guess we will need head Shell Town and I will fix you up with a few things and whatever you like.”
After a few days of travelling at sea they finally reached Shell town as the sun was shinning brightly above them. They made it in mid day after a couple of boring and long days at sea. “What am I suppose to do now?” Asked Gama having recovered his strength and his left hand on the hilt of his sword upon his hip to remain comfortable. “Just follow my lead, and follow me I will try my best to bring you prosperity for a boy of your skill and talent.” Gama felt alone, despite begin with Sachi who was an amazing man he could not help but feel loneliness. He was abandoned by his dad, his mother, his brother and now lost his island. Sachi shifted and then took a few steps forward and began walking down the island after tying down his boat.
Gama was eleven and looking back on his years from his sixth birthday. He still had the same dream a craving for an epic adventure as a pirate. He never stopped training for a day with his sword and speed however had developed more muscles from his new home. His new home, the Ogame School. He lived there now and began refining his techniques to the best of his abilities, he was taught by the master and after training for the past few years he was capable of pulling off almost every Ogame technique. He moves incredibly fast at this point and due to his size and strength he first began with the lightning form within the Ogame School mastering it quite quickly.
At the age of fifteen Gama mastered everything his school had to offer and became extremely powerful and proficient within the Ogame school techniques. He could flash and appear behind others in an instant almost untrackable with his Rumbling God technique. He then moved to the Land of Iron where he is being taught the great techniques of the Samurai.
A year has passed since he began his Samurai techniques and he is now waiting to continue his life as a Samurai considered a genius amongst others and faster then a ninja. He battled many people in different dojos with different martial art styles.
Gama can use Ogame school easily and extremely quickly without hesitation. This being his main combat style and his life style. He always carries two extremely lightweight Katana's with great sharpness and if one breaks he can just draw the other one. He always carries his chain with him as well with a weight at the end and a sickle on the other.
Taijutsu and other abilities
Gama has incredible abilities and to a great extent. He is naturally talented and genius swordsman. Gama is extremely fast and has a high degree of agility and bases his overall fighting style around this. Many stated he had never seen a man with such talent, he progressed at an incredibly fast rate during battle, and that he had incredible strength like a rampaging god. Gama has such talent and skill that he was able to perform a double slash on his first try and even without pain despite the fact that he should have because of the strange needle training he was being put though.
Talent and Genius:
Gama's most profound ability is his skill at using the sword. He is commented on for his high-level of skill in intercepting and winning against opponents that should have a considerable edge over him. He also has an intense amount of tactical skill being able to use situations such as sneaking up on opponents or hiding from them in order to attack them while they least expect it. Gama has also been known as a genius of the sword in which he comments he has been practicing since "day one" and defines his skill as his "will to win and grow stronger". This genius is best seen while training with Zenmaru in order to learn how to mask their presence within their attacks in which it took Zenmaru two more days than himself to master such thing. He is also often commented as "still growing", learning and evolving from battles and gaining more strength with his own experience. He is also capable of mastering new techniques within a relatively short period of time, such as "Kosen" one of Iori's signature techniques and "Narukami" which is the 3rd Level of the Ikazuchi Kata.
Gama is exceptionally fast and is commented as one of the fastest in the Ogame School even from Turtle-sensei also who commented that he was probably faster than him. Iori has also commented that he is able to keep up with his speed and thus he was ready to master the Narukami of the Ikazuchi Kata. As a result of his tremendous speed he usually uses the Ikazuchi Kata towards combat and has mastered this form. After the time skip, Gama has vastly improved in speed to the point where he can keep-up with Ranmaru who commented on "how he'd slightly grown in ability" and had even been able to outmaneuver him in combat showing a new level of speed.
Gama has impeccable agility, in which he has incredible amounts of quickness and reflexes in battle. One of the first showings of this skill was when he was fighting against the Tengen School and took on all three members of the school dodging each and every one of their lethal techniques even while they were attacking with combination strikes. Afterward he had been seen hiding on the roof from the Kyousen and providing a counterattack towards one of the three brothers. He has also been seen making variations of the Second Ikazuchi Kata, Shidensen such as making due with it in shorter ranges or using its quickness to provide counterattacks that would seem impossible, normally. After the timeskip Gama has enough quickness to dodge and counter attacks from "Jugan" users, in which he effortlessly defeated them until their leader "Ginki" came, in which he showed a high-level of quickness still after the man ingested two pills and even took a vein drug which gave his opponent even more battle strength.
Gama has always had an exceptional amount of skill in coordinating his body and balancing himself in order to gain the upperhand in combat. One of the first showings of this was within the Tengen School while he fought against Baian and two other students and moved his body to dodge all of the attacks with great balance and skill. It has only gotten better since then, using his bodies balance to go up against Midou Shingo who had incredible abilities in the use of his spear and even used the first Dokou Kata, Aragami to counterattack an extremely powerful spear slash from him and also used a new technique with the Tosen and Shidensen in order to create an extremely powerful new attack. He also mastered Kashitarou's needle training and did an extremely fast double slash without knowing what he had done. After the timeskip, Gama has shown a tremendous amount of balance even against "Jugan" users and defeat them without much effort and go against "Ginki" who showed much greater prowess than they did, and was still outmaneuvering him in most of the fight until he used his trump card. Within his battle against Riko (a former Ogame student and master of defense) showed a new level of coordination which he felt the entire movement of his body and could control it to a greater sense. He is currently trying to master that feeling.
Gama has a high-level of perception. To the point that he can judge attacks that most would not be able to discern from and even dodge. One of the best showings of this was from his battle with the Nakaizumi School in which he could discern various arrows and predict their paths in order to redirect them with just his sword. Thanks to the training within "Presence", he has gained the ability to judge and counter attacks from opponents before they even move.
Though not his greatest asset, Gama has shown a high degree of physical strength being able to pick up a full grown man almost twice his size with effort and cut through steel using the Kagutsuchi Kata First skill, Hibashira. He is also not able to cut through steel normally however as seen while facing Sakon of the Kyousen and was overpowered by Ranmaru with little effort. During the timeskip, Gama has shown a vast improvement in physical strength enough to catch a blade bare-handed and send a man flying with one Mutou Tosen.
Gama has a really strong willpower and carries the will of Iron inside from his very proud Land of Iron. Having such strong will means that in a fight, small injuries are not enough to stop Gama. His will to live for the village is a very great deal, it has helped him many times in fights.
Enhanced Agility & Reactions:
Gama is very agile and has a great reaction time along with reflexes, having fought like a wild beast his whole life. His reaction time is far greater than an average shinobi thanks to the excessive training he received from his father for over five years.
