Nickname: Budist Priest
Genjo Sanzo is of relatively average height and athletically wiry, although he's usually enveloped in his very loose white robe. He has bright gold blonde hair kept vaguely short and violet eyes, and is considered to be strikingly attractive. Underneath the robes, he's usually wearing simple blue-jeans and a thin, tight-fitting mock-turtleneck with not sleeves, with black finger-less gloves connecting to slave-rings on each hand. He's got a decent handful of scars, mostly not visible in his normal dress, all of which are fairly old. Also he wears eyeglasses when he's reading a newspaper.
Sanzo is not very open to anyone, and sees even the most trifling thing as being annoying. He is not overly fond of children or animals. He is indifferent, short tempered, and a rational thinker; most of the time he won't fight unless absolutely necessary, even if his comrades are. Despite his gruff and impersonal attitude, however, he cares deeply for his companions, though he'd loath to acknowledge it, and is quick to defend others in need. He hates rain, as it reminds him of the rainy night when his master was killed. On rainy nights he never sleeps, and sits up all night smoking and brooding. During prolonged spells of wet weather he refuses to eat and loses so much sleep that it becomes a point of anxiety to all.

His father was a skilled shinobi of Iwagakure named Rin Tokou. He was considered
the best of Iwa during his time and was feared by many outside of the village.
Because of this, he was chosen to be the War General for Iwa during the Third
Shinobi World War. He later died in the hands of Minato Namikaze at Kannabi
Bridge. Long before his death, he met Sanzo's mother, a woman named Kouran. She
was 17 years of age and the daughter of a shop peddlar.
After he was conceived, his mother died shortly after. The infant was placed in
a basket left floating in a river. Before he could drown he was saved by Koumyou
Sanzo. Koumyou named the boy Kouryuu, which means flow of the river, and took
him to the Kinzan Temple, located outside of Iwa. From that time on he raised
the boy like his own son and Kouryuu came to love and respect Koumyou.
For reasons still unknown at this point, Koumyou and Kouryuu's lives were put
into danger. One night, around the time that Kouryuu was 15 years old, Koumyou
called him in to speak with him. He ordained the boy as his successor and gave
him a formal Buddhist name. His final words were "Be strong now, Genjo Sanzo."
At that moment, a gang of rouge ninjas broke into the room demanding Koumyou's
scrolls of forbidden Fūinjutsu. In an effort to save the boy, Koumyou protected
Kouryuu and gave his life. Kouryuu told the temple what he had witnessed and was
unjustly accused of killing Koumyou himself, but the truth was proven when he
showed the red shakra, a mark of divine approval, that had appeared on his brow.
He announced his intention to leave the temple at once, find the murderers and
retrieve the scrolls. The temple supported his quest by sending off Sanzo to Iwa
to be properly trained and to become an exceptionally well shinobi like his
