Genshu is the Chiei Star from Suikoden II. Genshu was once a sword-for-hire, living as an assassin. However, his brother, who hoped Genshu would quit his dishonorable line of work, disguised himself as Genshu's target. Genshu failed to recognize him and killed him. Realizing that he killed his own brother, he quit his profession and decided to take his swordsmanship seriously by honing his mind. He has an obsession with powerful swords, and is particularly obsessed with the Star Dragon Sword.
