Kaoru Tamanegi (Samurai Onion)
Bred to serve his master as the perfect warrior, Kaoru became a great Samurai of the Shogun Kyurinaga cucumber. After years of loyal service, Tamanegi discovers the truth of this master's plots. His code of honor prevents him from continuing to serve and leading to a confrontation with the Shogun after which he is declared a traitor and stripped of his honor. When all seems lost he meets the optimistic warrior Broccoli Joe, who convinces Kaoru that honor can be regained if you fight for a good cause.
This leads Kaoru to seek revenge against Kyurinaga by any means possible. He needs the help of his allies and a long journey to understand that a true warrior does not fight for vengeance, but for something more, to be at peace with himself.
Kaoru Tamanegi is a warrior with little sense of humor and a very dramatic perception of his obligations. He is often taken to his limits of frustration by carefree and chatty Broccoli Joe. Kaoru is very disciplined, sporting a polished style of combat with precise and coordinated moves with his katana.
