Mastering his skills as a bowman and an assassin, Hanzo Shimada strives to prove himself as a warrior without peer. The Shimada family was established centuries ago, a clan of assassins whose power grew over the years, enabling them to build a vast criminal empire that profited from lucrative trade in arms and illegal substances. As the eldest son of the family's head, Hanzo was bound by duty to succeed his father and rule the Shimada empire. From a young age, he was trained for that responsibility, displaying a natural aptitude for leadership and possessing an innate understanding of strategy and tactics. He also excelled in more practical areas: he was a prodigy in martial arts, swordplay, and bowmanship. Upon the death of his father, the clan elders instructed Hanzo to straighten out his wayward younger brother so that he, too, might help rule the Shimada empire. When his brother refused, Hanzo was forced to kill him. This act broke Hanzo's heart and drove him to reject his father's legacy, ultimately leading him to abandon the clan and all that he had worked so hard to attain. Now, Hanzo travels the world, perfecting his skills as a warrior, attempting to restore his honor and put the ghosts of his past to rest.


Scatter Arrow: one arrow becomes many bouncing laser arrows

Sonic Arrow: Fires an arrow that can detect invisible enemies, and enemies behind walls

Storm Arrows: Rapidly fires six laser arrows

Dragon Strike: Fires two laser chi dragons that could go for miles, in a line that goes through wall, and disintegrates enemies, has a long cool down

Dragon’s Arrow: fires an explosive arrow that can go for miles, that is more dangerous the farther is goes, has a long cool down

Strategy: Hanzo is a sniper, firing arrows at a distance, but his scatter and storm arrows work better when his opponent is to close for comfort. If enemies are in a building, he would use scatter arrows and dragon strikes to eliminate them. Hanzo can be outranged by other snipers, and he can be dominated by enemies who rapid move around him. He works best with a defensive team
