Background/History: A native of Osaka, Japan, Edmund Honda was trained to be a sumotori at a very early age. Although small for his age (at the time) he trained hard, and applied himself to his studies and training. With time, he grew out to his full size and potential and rapidly moved his way up through the ranks to become a yokazuna.
Once he retired from competition, Honda opened his own dojo and begin training new wrestlers. He also wrote down his thoughts and opinions on his sport. Some of these writings angered other martial artists, who then challenged Honda to prove the superiority of his style. Honda, honor bound to accept or risk loosing face, fought in these matches, emerging the winner. Encouraged by his success, he then entered the Street Fighting circuit to prove the worthiness of his style and his skill as a fighter.
Personality/Motivation: Honda is a champion through and through. His victories have come as a result of a grueling training regimen as well as a complete commitment to his studies and his art. Not only has Honda practiced his techniques, he has studied them, coming to understand the principles behind sumo as well as the art itself. Honda has also opened up his studies to such topics as Shintoism and poetry, as a way to round out his education as a warrior.
Honda is very much an honorable competitor, and follows the traditions of his art to the letter. He will fight fairly in a match, for to do other wise is to bring shame to his name, his art, and Japan. Honda is also fair in his dealing with others, treating all others equally and with the respect that they deserve. He will not underestimate a foe by acting in a brash or overconfident manner. At all times, he will fight to the best of his ability, as he wishes to prove that sumo is the best of all possible martial arts.
Quote: "My size is my greatest weapon."
Powers/Tactics: As a yokazuna (champion) Honda is a master of the art of sumo. He has modified the original sport form of sumo into a more practical fighting art, and uses his size and strength to great effect in the Street Fighter circuit. In general he keeps to the ground, using an assortment of slaps, smashes, and throws to keep his opponent off-balance. It is when his opponent least expects it (like after being Stunned) that Honda will take to the air, performing his well-known Flying Head Butt or Air Smash (which is where he leaps into the air and lands on his foe).
Honda has refined his striking skill to the point where he can unleash a dozen blows in an eye-blink. His Hundred Hand Slap is a favorite and much feared technique. Honda has also added a few kicking techniques to his arsenal and will not hesitate to use them if possible.
When not competing in Street Fighter matches, Honda runs his own sumo school in Japan. He has a number if students and his school is fairly popular.
Appearance: Honda is just huge. He stands around 6'3" and weighs over 400 lbs, with black hair and dark eyes. When fighting he wears a modified sumo mawashi, arranges his hair into a traditional style, and adds kabuki face paint.
Designer's Notes: This version of E. Honda is fairly intelligent and learned. The version that showed up in the original Street Fighter anime seemed significantly less so.
This character sheet is adapted from the Street Fighter game originally published by White Wolf. Characteristics have been derived using the conversion notes given in The Ultimate Mentalist. Skills have been derived from skills and skill descriptions given in the White Wolf RPG. The values for skills were derived from the idea that 1 dot = 8-, 2 dots = 11-, and each additional dot as a +1 to the roll. Other skills, powers and disadvantages are taken from material given in the RPG sourcebooks.
