One of the founding members of the original Dojang along with the likes of Azriel, Hayabusa and Aureilious, Tomoe Michi is a part-human part-angel man human/angel hybrid from Kamakura-era Japan.



In the current time line, he is one of the veteran members of the new generation of the Dojang who handles collaboration with the military, training the new guardians and general strategy in battle while dealing with Miedo taking up the leader's mantle, his deteriorated relationship with his old friend and fellow Dojang veteran Chang, and raising his daughter, Yaori.


to:

As a character, Michi is an examination of a person hailing from a different time and culture and how such a person could move and adapt with the times, given immortality such as what he possesses. Although in Michi's early life he was very much the archetype of everything Japanese society expected of him, his travels around the world and the few relationships he has have helped him to adopt other beliefs and worldviews. He is also an examination of the 'living weapon' character, who is honed utterly for combat against many types of foes. It profoundly affects his mental processing so that he looks at many issues through the lens of battle.

The fiancee of Tomoe Michi. She and her father were expatriates/emissaries of Japan, living in the western part of China as a guest of Kublai Khan's court. Upon learning of the attempted invasions, Yuriko is taken back to Japan to see the country while it still exists. Whilst her father is in the capital treating with the Hojo court, Yuriko stays at an inn near Michi's dojo, and the two of them develop a friendship, then a romance. Her experiences in China, such as meeting members of [HistoricalDomainCharacter Marco Polo's]] expedition, give her a far more worldy and inquisitive view of life, which she partially shares with Michi. She is the namesake of his daughter, Tomoe Yuriko.

* TheStoic: People are drawn to him because he's a very pretty guy, and he is a genuinely nice guy. He has no lack of female attention in his life, but most of the time they end up leaving him because of his lack of reaction to pretty much everything. Sound familiar?

Michi]]



One of the founding members of the original Dojang along with the likes of Azriel, Hayabusa and Aureilious, Tomoe Michieru (more frequently known as 'Michi') is a part-human part-angel man from the age of feudal Japan.

Despite his inherently martial nature and vast knowledge and experience of weaponry, the military and strategy of war, he is a soft-spoken serene man with a stiff sense of honour, loyalty and a black and white sense of morality. A long life has seen him travel the world throughout the centuries, leaving him somewhat jaded and retentive in the face of experience and multiple tragedies, such as the loss of his fiancee, countless wars and the deaths of his companions. Though he is still seen to be old-fashioned in action, appearance and speech, he is thoroughly capable of moving with the times, as adept with a sniper rifle and a variety of modern technology as his arsenal with samurai weaponry, though slightly less adept at expressing his feelings or understanding the feelings of others. Many have made the mistake of underestimating him due to his quiet disposition and his tendency to avoid being the centre of attention or in any real sense of command for many years, but they do so at their own peril.

* MyGreatestFailure: He has several moments like this, depending on what era. In his early life, it would be freezing up when having to make his first kill. In modern times, pretty much anything to do with Chang.



* OneManArmy: Zig-zagged. In his early years, he was considered something of an in-universe MemeticBadass due to his actions in the Mongol invasions. Luck and a well-placed arrow helped him dispatch dozens of warriors, and he took the rest of them on in melee. Stories and propaganda being what they are, his feats were a wee bit exaggerated. In later conflicts, especially after receiving training from Darmageinka, he exemplifies a OneManArmy more conventionally.

Michi and Chang's eldest daughter. She was conceived when they met in Shanghai, after Chang slipped date-rape drugs into Michi's drink. Yaori was born whilst Chang was in the depths of her insanity and being held at Tameside. In the peaceful timeline, Michi raises her alone for the first few years of her life before Chang returns. In the current timeline, he takes her to live at the Academy, where she stays in the nursery most of the time while Michi's in the field or attending to his duties. As Yaori grows up, she finds herself desperately trying to relive her parents' legacy, especially Michi.
