Jin lives during the Edo era of isolationist Japan and therefore does not speak English.



  • Katana BODY 08, EV 04 (08 w/Martial Artist)]. His main weapon. Jin claims that it contains his soul and will generally sulk if he has to part with it for any reason – even if it’s only temporary.
  • Wakasashi [BODY 04, EV 03, R#02]. Like a lot of samurai-type characters Jin does have a Katana set, but he hardly ever uses the Wakasashi and almost never uses them both at the same time, thus he doesn’t have the paired weapons shtick.
