The Empire Reborn
Katsuo is a hard, analytical man. Though he would like to see his nephew Ichirou take a stronger role in leading the clan, Katsuo is also practical enough to know that to do so would be the end of the Scorpion clan and so he has decided that the shadow government set up by Daisuke is probably for the best. Katsuo has been a soldier for many many years, and though he can wield a sword as well as the next man, he prefers command as that is where his talents truly lie. He commands with a strong, unwavering disposition and is well respected by his men. His only true flaws are his love of drink and his bitterness. Katsuo takes defeat very hard and has struggled with this all his life. Due to the horrors he has seen on the battle field Katsuo took to drinking and discovered its properties to sooth his mind. Rarely does he binge, but when he does he is absent for days. He sees both of these things as weaknesses that he must overcome, and he struggles with them daily. Katsuo is well-known as a man who roughs it with his men never taking more than they get, sleeping in the same type of tent his men do and basically not taking advantage of his situation. His only true ambition is to serve the scorpion well.
