Yoshimitsu (吉光?) is the leader of the Manji Clan, a group of noble Robin Hood-esque thieves.
Yoshimitsu is an eccentric ninja, who robs the rich to give to the poor. As such, he tends to give to the needy without asking for anything in return. As such, Yoshimitsu is quite sociable, and can make a very good friend, if a bit of a weird one.
However, do not take Yoshimitsu's strangeness as a reason to underestimate him or make him angry. Yoshimitsu is a trained swordsman who wields a cursed blade wielded by his ancestors before him, sharing the name Yoshimitsu. The blade requires a steady supply of the deaths of evil men, lest it drive its user insane. Yoshimitsu acts accordingly, hunting down such people and slaying them with his blade. Yoshimitsu is also vengeful, and will not tolerate his allies or clan being attacked, such as with him seeking revenge against Brian Fury after he slaughtered multiple clan members protecting Dr Bosconovich.
When not on duty, Yoshimitsu is an avid gamer, both in arcades (especially in Shinjuku, Japan) and in online play, as well as browsing the net.
