Daigotsu Kanpeki

Daigotsu Kanpeki, all grown up. The singular progeny of a legend-turned-god, forging a destiny that may mirror, or may defy, his fathers. I am, of course, speaking of Rokugani high-fashion trendsetting, a tricky business in the traditional world he comes from.

Here we see Kanpeki practicing his samurai-chef knife skills on bundles of iron bars. That's right, bamboo tatami rolls are for runt baby wusses. Our boy here turbo-dices these metal shafts with a speed and precision that makes Autobots and Decepticons alike cover their crotch-plates in wincing horror.

For Legend of the Five Rings. Copyright Alderac Entertainment Group.

Interesting side-note: The horned head-piece is actually a clever way Kanpeki hides his embarrasing set of slug-eyes.

Want/getted me a Kanpeki print from the Emerald Champion tournament last Saturday. Steve, you owe me an autograph.

Happy to do it. Email me and I'll get you an address to ship it to. Sorry I didn't make it out to the Emerald Championship.

Without context I immediately thought this was the sun of Raiden from Mortal Kombat.

Hell, how I wish Steve could draw a character of mine. He's incredible!

Kanpeki is incredible!

I would love to know what his katana is made of for it to slice through the iron bars like butter.

Forged in the breath of fire demons, of an alloy of lasers and awesome.

Screw taint, I'm eating a cheesecake off those abs. Now, how to get him to hold still instead of eviscerating me...
