A descendent of Chinese heritage, Kento comes from the largest family
as well as the wealthiest. He has two younger brothers and two younger
sisters, making him the eldest of his siblings. If there's one thing
Kento likes, it's eating. That's probably why he and Sai (a chef
Emeril in the making) are such good friends. Kento is always joking
around or making wisecracks, making him the comedy relief of the
From his immigrant ancestors, who moved to Japan from China during
the Ching Dynasty, the story of a armour has been passed down. One
family actually possesses the armour. Kento's family is part of
a collection of families, a clan, in Yokohama that follow the leadership
of an older man called Grandfather. I'm not sure if he is really
related to Kento.
When Kento was thirteen, he secretly gave Kento a test to see if
he was worthy of the family treasure. During summer vacation, Kento
and the next two siblings were allowed to go to the family resort
where the family treasures were kept. What happens next differs.
Several treasures were broken, either by Kento's siblings or by
an old lady they met on their way there. Either way, in order to
take the blame off of them and onto himself, Kento broke several
other treasures himself. This awoke the 'GI' heart.
Hardrock appeared before Kento and then vanished, leaving the armour
sphere behind. His siblings didn't notice. But the version that
had the old lady was actually the grandfather and he knew about
it all. He had also replaced the treasures in the resort with imitations
before Kento came.
Kento's orange armour is Hardrock. He has a weapon that is usually
a tetsubo, iron bo, with a naginata blade on one end. It can also
change to a three-jointed nunchuck. His special attack is Iron Rock
Crush, where he spins the bo over his head and then aims one end
toward the enemy and ground.
Kento's family is the most prosperous of all the Ronins but he isn't
snobbish about it. He also has the most 'normal' family. As the
oldest of five, Kento knows how to live with lots of people. That's
probably why he doesn't get into so many fights with the others
when they all live together despite his stubbornness and short temper.
He'll most likely inherit the family business.
Ever since Kento was young, he pilfered food to fill his ever empty
stomach. As the oldest, he was supposed to yield to his younger
siblings. He even drank spoiled milk once because he knew that yogurt
was made from sour milk.

Yokohama. It is now a chain restaurant. Also knows kung fu.

* Chun Fa: younger sister eleven years younger than Kento.
* Grandfather: actually the leader of the clan that Kento's family
is part of. Kento will probably take over when he resigns.

Not sure if he is a blood or clan relative.
