Born Isawa Kawai, the man that would become the ronin Watari was a promising student at the Isawa Shugenja academy. Devout, with a powerful connection to the Void, the Elemental Masters saw great promise in the boy. With his prophetic dreams and ability to connect with the Void as an ishiken-do, no expense was spared to give him the best education possible. It seemed the Pheonix had a master in the making.

Until he learned the truth.

Shortly before his gempukku, Isawa Kawai was told of his family’s dark secret. They had been involved in the opening of the Black Scrolls of Fu Leng during the Clan Wars. Managing to survive, they sought to escape the horrible dishonor they had brought upon their family and clan, and so changed their names and falsified their history.

The information shocked the honorable, idealistic Kawai. Unable to bear the dishonor, but refusing to bring his entire family low by revealing the truth, the boy quietly slipped away the day he was to become an adult. Before he could, however, the Void Dragon visited him in his dreams, impressing on the young man that his learning was too important to set aside, and so, before fleeing Phoenix lands, he snatched several Isawa scrolls detailing secret shugenja techniques. He now wanders the empire as the ronin Watari, helping people wherever he can.
