Age of Emperors
Regarded as the greatest Hiruma scout of his generation. Kuma once shared a bath with the men of the group. Like many of his family he bears the Shadowlands taint which appear as black stains on his skin resembling ink stains. He is known for his gruff nature and lack of etiquette.
He led Isawa Hiraku, Hida Masaru, and the ronin, Koan, through the Shadowlands to track the Dark Moto. It was because of his expertise that they were able to survive. He tracked the Dark Moto into the Shinomen Forest where he was caught and sacrificed in a Maho ritual before Hiraku’s and Koan’s eyes.
