[Characters] Bennosuke

I used this character in my friend's Savage World of Solomon Kane game a few years ago. I thought that a young samurai in Europe would be a cool concept.

Bennosuke is based on the famous Miyamoto Musashi and part of the character background I came up with included a missing father and being hunted by some European powers.

Shinmen Musashi (Bennosuke) no Kami Fujiwara no Genshin, of the village of Miyamoto
Human, Male, 11 years old
Novice + 1 Advance

Bennosuke was born 11 years ago in the village of Miyamoto, in Japan. Last year, his Daimayo ordered his father to go to Portugal to deal with the Jesuits. Benno accompanied him. While there, his father disappeared and he found himself in Algeria, on a quest to find his father. He joined up with the other PCs after a bit. He is unaware that the Jesuits are after him.
