Physical Description

Kensei follows the traditional Drakon's appearance. Featuring a flate face-sheet, with golden touches and detail at the end of the pristine white sheet that covers his cerebrum. This sheet is folded vertically down at the front. Indicating the perfect middle of this plate. From the back of his head run countless wires and wire braids. These end in a plethora of connection plugs. This entire wiring is all folded in half and pulled back up, before being tied together by two large, black straps. Cutting the length just inches shy of his lower back.

Every piece of armour plating is of a pristine white, be it on his arms or legs, body or face. And within the cracks of this pristine white, a deep blue hum of energy is visible at times. Although Kensei has a more decorated frame, as requested by his buyer, some pieces are embossed. As well as finished with golden details, much akin to the sheet of metal that besets his face.

Kensei is often seen wearing a combination of a parka and a cape, primarily in a deep purple hue, which is bolted to the back of his frame. It manages to hide the more intristic designs of his upper body. Kensei is also more than often seen wearing a straw hat.

His legs are bent in the reverse from traditional humans and Nekovalkyrja, folding backwards. Two cylinders stick out of the angle these reverse knees form, symmetrically on each side. Kensei is also quite thoroughly armed. A nodachi strapped to his back. And no less than four wakizashi, two on each hip, these are costum weaponry, forged by Origin Blade Works.


Ken Seijin, abbreviated by his creators to Kensei, is one of the first publically released Drakon Units, sold independantly to another company's CEO. Ichi/Rei, or 1/0, indicates his public release as one of the first mobile Drakon platforms with a self-sufficient AI. Ken Seijin, translated from Yamataian, becomes Sword Saint. And both in abilities and personality, this name is more than applicable. As far as his programming does not obstruct him and as far as he's considered sapient, Kensei is a gentle and kind soul. Though as all Drakon, they share an awkward social inaptitude. Unable to properly follow any other kind of individual in their reasonings. He defers to just trusting their plans. If it doesn't threaten the lives of other, innocent people.

Kensei was home to a rather brute, if not abusive owner. More than often was he ridiculed and humiliated on parties. Drawn upon by magic markers, having glasses poured out over him. Being commanded to jump into the pool etc. His buyer believed him to be expandable, able to just purchase another one if Kensei broke. At first, he didn't even realized he was a laughing stock. Though soon the idea developed. And it lead to the AI itself questioning several parameters. And through this abuse, a sense of self grew ever so slightly. Self-preservation was added to the list of priorities. Even though he was bound by programming to protect his master, more than often, he fought back against the humiliation.

It's why he fears the repercussions from Drakon Company. His owner died in an unrelated accident at a construction site. And now he roams around, looking for refuge from people that cannot even track him.


Kensei Ichi/Rei was released during YE 40, as one of the first few publically released Drakon. To a filthy rich buyer who saw him as just another tool that was able to just abuse. Buy a new one when he ceased functioning properly. Though Kensei persevered through this abuse and humiliation. At first, there wasn't any sensation. He barely comprehended the negative attitude towards him. Though soon, a sense of self started to develop. And he started to get sick of the treatment. It wasn't six months later for his owner to be crushed on a construction site. And while he felt relief, to his own disgust, fear also rose.

Over the years, he developed this sense of self. And with it, came the instinct of preservation. He was afraid of Drakon Company resetting and rebooting him because his owner died. So he tore his tracker out and just ran.

He finally came across the Danko clan's grounds. And was taken in. What followed was months of training. Earning him a place among the Danko samurai, as well as citizenship to the Yamatai star empire. The publically available JP can be found here on site.

Skills Learned

Optional section. Kensei Ichi/Rei has the following notable skills:

  • Communications: Trade and Yamataigo are the two languages he's originally programmed with. While his distracted demeanour is often to blame for any grammatical mistakes he makes.
  • Maintenance and Repair: Kensei, as a battledroid, knows how to perform basic maintenance on himself, both hard- and software.
  • Fighting: Ken Seijin, translating to Sword Saint, was made like all Drakon. Namely purely focussed on melee. Kensei is able to fight with his Nodachi, Wakizashi and the two combined. Due to his time with the Danko Clan, Kensei has become adept with the Kusagirama as well.

Drakon Unit inherent abilities

  • Modular upgrade: EPS. A shielding module that grants the Drakon a barrier at the cost of core charges
  • Core abilities: including core beam and self destruct.
  • Direct uplink: with his wire braid, Kensei is able to plug in to other machinery for a myriad of reasons. However, hostile machines are a danger. This direct uplink can be used to directly exchange data with other AI. Including fellow Drakon Units.
