Kurai has a average build with a slightly muscular frame. His build makes him more suited to speed but he has got a decent amount of strength thanks to intense training. His eyes are like empty purple jewels that glisten in the sunlight and his hair is as soft as a cats fur coat.
He wears a slightly torn lightweight medium sized dark blue poncho that allows him to hide the movements of his arms in battle and lightweight Oxford blue long-sleeved shirt and black trousers. He has small boots that absorb the impact of a large fall. On his forearms he has black armor for protection. He has two black sword sheaths on his back under his poncho.
Weapons & abilities
He has above average reflexes and combat skills due to his training with Master and was taught by his mother how to be a skilled swordsman at a young age.
His unique weapon is a pair of ōdachi blades called the Ghost blades. They were a present from his mother for his studies, but were destroyed during the Grimms attack. He afterwards reformed the blades from their broken pieces and made them even stronger. When he doesn't want to use lethal blows on a opponent, he fight with his sword still inside their sheaths.
Kurai can predict his enemies movements quite well due to his training. He can find a opponents rhythm and dodge their moves. He prefers to let his opponents attack first, but this is mainly so that he can launch a counter attack more easily. Kurai learned a variation of the fighting style called Five-to-One from his mother. It's a style similar to Eskrima called Jade Mantis. A swordplay style that relies on hitting key pressure points and even sometimes using joint locks and small joint manipulation.
Kurai's semblance is called Hurricane wing. His eyes glow orange as a whirlwind flows around him. Kurai can control small and light projectiles caught in the wind and fling them back at the shooter or force them to miss. He can also use the wind to give him a good solid speed boost. But anything anything along the lines of Tank Rounds, Anti-aircraft Missiles, Artillery Shells or beyond is a no-sell for his semblance. It also isn't effective against lasers.
The whirlwinds can last for about five seconds and has a seven second cooldown time..
He is an extremely calm and composed individual due to Master training him to bottle his emotions of anger and revenge, allowing him to remain a enigma to both enemies and allies alike. As a result, not much is known of his true personality by anyone who he met after joining Master, although the has show some traits through his actions, such as a strong sense of justice, respect for his men, a strong dislike for those who look down on the faunus, an intense dislike to lose, fiercely dedicated and, borderline obsessive in accomplishing his goals.
He is good friends with Gretel, Maki, Laelia and Hansel, though he and Hansel have a bit of a rivalry when they train together.
He had a lot of respect for Master and owes him his life, though Master treated him the same as all his other students. After an incident caused Kurai to see Master as a manipulative heartless man, he's seen his former teacher as nothing more than another enemy. One who he's unsure if he should spare his life.
He was born in the town of Tenth, which was inhabited by people who came form a long line of powerful hunters. His mother Mulan Jade, was one of the towns greatest hunters and often competed in the towns weapons contests. He would often cook for her when she returned from the contests. Mulan trained him to be a skilled swordsman and techniques for combat. After a while she met a book author named "Goldstein" Melira and decided to become a author so she could spend more time with her son. Due to the people of Tenth viewing faunus as equals Kurai was able to become good friends with a number of them. He couldn't understand why some people would treat faunus so badly.
He decided to go and study abroad for a while, his mother gave him two blades for his studies. But one day he saw some of his classmates about to attack a group of defenseless faunus when nobody was looking. He defeated them in battle. Unfortunately, one of the bullies was the son of a political official who took Kurai to court for his sons injuries. The judge then gave Kurai a choice. He could either pay a fine or be banned from public combat schools. Not wanting to put his family in any debt, he choose the latter.
Having no where to go, he decided to head back home. But when he arrived, he saw a large hoard of Grimm attacking, his mother was destroying most of the Grimm that approached the people who were trying to escape. He decided to try to lure the Grimm away from them, but just when it looked like they were about to win a masked man attacked Mulan from behind, With all the noise around her, she never saw it coming. Out of rage Kurai charged towards the man, but he grabbed Kurai by the neck and threw him into one of the buildings.
When Kurai regained consciousness, everything, everyone, was gone, His own home, now in ruins. Then a man in a black robe approached him and offered him training alongside a number of other skilled men and women to become a powerful warrior like his mother was. Kurai agreed and used his broken blades to create the Ghost blades. He was then taken to one of the many hidden bases built by his new teacher, one who called himself Master, and grew in speed, strength, and skill.
The training schedule was mostly virtual training and missions. Through this rigorous training he earned the respect and loyalty of his fellow 'classmates' and seniors. He befriended two people who were also under Masters command, Laelia and Gretel. He helped them with there training and they created a combat robot called Hansel. Gretel loved their creation and treated Hansel like he was her brother. But after a while Gretel grew suspicious as to what Master was planning as his training lessons were more focused battling hunters instead of creatures of the Grimm and left his organization. She tried to convince Kurai and Laelia to leave also, but Kurai felt that he owed Master his life and Laelia wanted to continue her training to please her mother. They then said farewell. As a goodbye gift they gave each other friendship bracelets.
A while after Gretel left, Laelia got bored of chasing weak criminals and wanted to test her skills against the strongest opponents she could find. Kurai noticed this and let her leave the organization pretending that she went missing.
He and his men now roam through cities, using his new skills as a renegade, catching criminals and hunting the man who took all that he loved away from him. He later became friends with a student at Beacon called Maki and offered to help her train seeing that they were much alike. Then he decided to help out more students in case Gretel's suspicions about Master were true, and promised Gretel that if she helped him find and defeat Mask that he would leave Master.
During one of his trips to the ruins of Tenth, he met Melira who came to pay her respects. He then gave her a book. The last one his mother had ever written. It had two copies, one for Kurai and one for Melira.
After the fall of Beacon, Kurai remained hard at work stopping theives and other small time criminals trying to take advantage of the law enforcement being so sperad out. Then Gretel with the aid of a few people from company called the Flagg Institute, showed footage to him of one of Master's followers being used as a suicide bomber and an assassination attempt on Laelia planned by one of Master's elites. Sending a message with the footage to the other groups of Master's realm, he sparked a civil war in his ranks. Any rebels that managed to reach Flagg were accepted as troops and traniees for various uses in the company in return for protection.
Kurai and his team or rebels now currently live in the main Flagg branch in Vale, mostly working as troops and security.
