Last surviving member of the Oja, ruling family of the Serpent Clan, and the protagonist of the original two campaigns. Kenji starts the campaign returning from a long exile, having escaped murdering his father and an ensuing Lotus pogrom that killed the rest of his family. Depending on the path chosen he seeks either to rebuild the lost Dragon Clan, or to return glory to the Serpent Clan by becoming its new leader. Kenji isn't usable in multiplayer for either clan, as he would most certainly be a GameBreaker.
