Rokuro Yoshida otherwise known as Roy Yoshida is a character made by LordRoymaster
Born from a Yōkai father known as Shen Yoshida and a human mother he is considered to be an outcast to both the Yōkai and the humans. The half breed didn't have a place to fit in, and due to his parents dying an early death he didn't recall his birth name well. However, a woman then took him in much to his surprise who of which is named Kaoru. She asked the boy for his name, however, he could not recall a name he could go by and was instead named Yasu. He was raised well enough for Yasu to call her his mother, and Kaoru considered Yasu to be her son of sorts. Though Yasu's Yōkai heritage could not be hidden from Kaoru forever, she did not let that torment her view of him. Despite this Yasu couldn't play with anybody once the others found out that he is a half-breed due to being terrified of him or their parents shaming him. Yasu felt lonely, or so he thought as Kaoru reminded him that she is still there for him in the toughest of days.
Unfortunately good things do not last long as Kaoru would soon be found out of raising a Yōkai of sorts and would then be told to let him go or in otherwords kill him due to recent beliefs that all Yōkais are all evil. Kaoru was not blinded by this belief however, she saw the good in Yasu and refused to just end his life so early resulting in the bandits going after the two causing the death of Kaoru, the moment he lost somebody, the very moment his trust in humanity completely diminished. He tried to run for his life, scared and panicked. He didn't wanna die, but then he grabbed a katana with little to no experience with it to fight the bandit. His life was going to end there.. Or at least that what he thought once a bipedal shiba inu saved him from being slaughtered from the bandits who killed them with relative ease. This was the dog Yōkai Inugami, he at first thought nothing of Yasu, but at their second encounter he saw his will to live surprised that he isn't on the floor bleeding out. A will that he respects.. He talked to Yasu finding out that he is a hybrid, a Yōkai and Human hybrid. Something that is considered cursed in both the human and Yōkai realms. But he could not let this boy die in a place here, and has taken him as a pupil giving him a new name to represent his strength.
As Rokuro grew older so did his grudge against humanity. Much to his mentor's dismay he yearns to show his vengeance to humans due to his ever so growing seething hatred, training himself to combat the strong and slay the weak whom disturb him seemingly showing no remorse to those "fools" who dared to approach him. His skill and strength as a swordsman was great for a physically 14-year-old half-breed being capable of take down more older and experienced foes with relative ease, a skilled swordsman with a questionable drive, and a goal. Inugami countless of times tried to steer Roy off of his current goal and walk down a new and brighter path. But Roy refused to do so walking with his blood stained with the blood of both demons and humans who have tried to attack him.
Throughout his little journey, he met Elesis the leader of the Red Knights, though he didn't exactly open up to her instantly, it took time and Roy slowly understood that humans aren't as evil as Roy thought them out to be. Though, he was still unpredictable the boy finally had something to protect and know how it feels to have something to protect becoming less the murderer humans feared and more the protector the humans need. Which again the process was indeed quite slow.
Roy is still the cold and distant individual he is and even still towards Elesis. But, has definitely refrained himself from killing a soul. Throughout the Ganondorf arc the people he once thought to murder and despised became his friends and comrades, although Roy struggled to admit it himself. Sometime after the Ganondorf and Orochi arcs ,his past self is completely ridden and he has becaoe a changed man.. Someone noble, and honorable yet calm and collected. He has becaoe much more respectable midway into the series as well as having a stronger bond with Elesis his love interest.
Onwards to the Lavos arc Roy and Elesis fully developed feelings for each other where back then the two couldn't exactly confess their feelings to each other properly. They have made a promise to protect each other going into the battle with Lavos until they both departed from each other where Roy and his friends have fought Lavos marking this fight to be the final battle of his journey remembering the memories of his past self and the wrong doings he has done, endless murder, and a thirst for vengeance. However, he has overoame those shackles becoming a strong man someone capable of taking on anything but not without the help of his friends.
And finally, Roy has then dueled Sutoku to the death who has been revealed to be his father's killer, Sutoku tried to convince Roy that his father has been a terrible man towards others, and someone who should not be respected. However, Roy himself disagreed learning about his father from his brother, Aragi thinking his father to be a kind and righteous man.. And indeed he was... After defeating Sutoku once and for all through a hard fought battle he has met with the spirits of both his father and mother being told these words from his own father.
"You must know the common pain of one man. You cannot view the world on your perspective, know another person's perspective in life. Know the hardships one has gone through, know their pain. Otherwise, this battle would be for nothing... Stay humble.. Stay strong.."
Roy heard these words as the ghosts then faded away.. He shall remember those said words.. And thus marks the end of his journey, for now.
Rokuro at the beginning is quite cynical, and only driven by his selfish desires, and aloof. He doesn't trust a single human threatening to kill them if they get too close to his territory, which Inugami does not approve. His path is to be considered a dark one he is walking on leading Inugami to be worried about his well being as he is driven by sorrow and loss. Roy is also only interested in interacting with strong individuals meaning he prefers to know one another through combat. If they are to be weak he will cut them down without hesitation. Though, once he met Elesis Sieghart his heart has gone through a change, although gradual as he understands that he is misguided and blinded by his grudge against humanity. He then slowly began to open up to her albeit hesitant.
He obtained more friends throughout his journey, friends he at first thought to be weights carrying him down from becoming stronger are now his friends that help him become stronger. Midway he finds out that he can't do anything on his own though is still rather distant and cold in a way and yet he is much more friendly than before. He has a newfound direction for his efforts forming new bonds and strengthening his already strong bonds with one another, but at this time of the series he still has much to learn.
And so Roy has then accepted his human blood overcoming his Yōkai heritage, though not sure of his own strength at the same time. He questions why he is chosen as the one to rid of Hukanure. He's afraid that he may die in the heat of battle, but despite all of this he gets right back up to face his fears once more. He no longer looks to be stronger to wreck vengeance amongst humanity, no his desires are more than that.. He wants to see a good future where he can live peacefully alongside his soon to be wife Elesis, Roy sees the importance of bonds and learns to not sever them... He regrets his sins and his doings but he believes that grieving over them mindlessly would only hinder him greatly, and so he must do what he considers to be right in order to redeem himself.
Finally, at the end of his story (Well not exactly..) he becomes the hero everyone needed but not with the help of his friends.. .Lion, EP, and Aki. He considers himself not to be a righteous hero, and someone to not be looked up to but rather someone who merely fights for what is right.
The boy overall is a loner before the time-skip due to seeing friends as chains that restrict his power. He has little to no friends even neglecting his mentor at times being blinded by his hatred, he is the type to never show remorse for one another unless it is an innocent bystander. He may be a murderer and rather cold he still has moral limits. He will not kill a child, infant, or defenseless individuals. However, if they do indeed prove to be harmful to him in any way he will murder them without hesitation even if it feels wrong to him. He merely spares them as a "warning" for them to not become like the rest of them, otherwise, death will surely come for them. He does not however leave any witnesses during his killings.
Once he met Elesis Sieghart his view on humans changed drastically throwing away his murderous tendencies, to once again protect the ones he loves, though still a bit hard to befriend he was working on it at the time. His relationship with Elesis would extend to the point that they've then made a happy family together making them both parents.
Aside from Roy's serious side he also has a light-hearted side to him, considering that he does not go well with jokes unable to get most if not all jokes, and has an unhealthy obsession with candy,
Before the time-skip Roy wasn't exactly the most friendly -ooking despite his size. Standing at 5'5" and wields sharp brown eyes that piercesthrough his foes intimidating them. The overall design of Roy depicts him to be an enigma, and mysterious which yes he indeed is mysterious towards others as he is someone who rarely ever opens up to one another, Roy's attire is going for a more rebellious samurai showing no care for his master's scolding telling him that he is the one that makes his path and nobody can stop him. Roy's hair is black and spiky as his hair hangs over him as bangs. with his skin color being in the middle ground of tan and peach, not too dark nor too light. Roy is the type to not show any emotions, especially in battle as he believes that "Showing emotions is showing your weaknesses" and thus he must contain himself. Roy is usually seen as cold, distant, and rude towards others as that isn't exactly wrong, the only emotions he ever shows is stoic, anger, and sorrow.
He wears a short-sleeved coat with a large collar with a kanji printed on the left side of his chest. Said coat is dark gray with a tint of black and red, and copper colored arm guards. He also wears a black belt around his coat. His pants are black and white and wear black combat boots, as well as a necklace he wears around his neck which he seems to cherish deeply. Beneath all the clothing Roy wears is a toned body, though not too muscular enough to it to be believable that he can do his feats.
During the Orochi-Lavos arc Roy's right sleeve is ripped up and as a result, is bandaged with his attire going through an overhaul. His coat is more ripped up and now he's missing his collar which is replaced with a dark red scarf. The necklace he had once worn around his neck is now tied around his right arm where the bandaged arm is, still holding onto it as if it meant something to him alongside bands around his arm. His hair this time is less spiked up with his hair growing slightly longer over the years, his eyes are less sharp and more so calm to show that his hatred and vengeance is long gone and he now has something to protect, slowly becoming more human as the series goes on..
Current times Roy’s murderous ways is now completely gone as seen by his eyes, he looks more relaxed as he now wears a black and red samurai outfit with a red scarf around his neck. Turning from a stoic boy is now a loving family man as he shows it in his face, being much more expressive (Though still a bit expressionless at times) learning to smile and even laugh in very rare occasions.
