Hiro Kouen is an adventurer and hero from another realm (DaeLuin), son of famed hero Sabishii and his wife Seraphia Kouen. He idolized his father, and was born with powerful fire magic and affinity, as well as a latent for swordsmanship. He trained with his father, learning how to wield both swords and magic in concert. He learned about magical theory, how to wield different kinds of swords, as well as basic skills in other weapons He even learned archery from his father's old friend, Blaze the fire elf. Hiro was a young prodigy in combat and magic. The world of his origin collapsed, Hiro was lead into a portal to safety, arriving in Revaliir, though the trip messed with some of his memories, causing him to forget about the experience of losing his world through an apocalypse. He arrived in Revaliir, and started to make a name for himself, believing he had asked his father for permission to explore the world upon his 16th birthday and ending up in Revaliir through a portal.
Upon starting to miss his father's presence, he met with Lady Moliira, then Goddess of the Hunt, and she managed to reawaken latent memories within him. He remembered the apocalypse in DaeLuin, and his father saving his life. They were able to track down his father's location: a containment cell within another, unknown world. Moliira managed to open a portal to that world, and they saved Sabishii, Hiro's dog Ember, and rescued a group of other prisoners in that world. Hiro and Sabishii made a life for themselves in Revaliir, though Sabishii's life was cut short when Dalanesca and Xunatar began a reign of terror, unleashing the powers of the Seven Deadly Sins upon the world. Hiro and Sabishii ascended the tower were the two Deities lived, and requested the two Gods stop their reign of terror, and came to blows with the Gods. Hiro survived the battle, but Sabishii was incinerated by infernal hellfire. Hiro managed to escape alive, but he was badly shaken up by the experience. Taking time to recover from the battle, he managed to stand back on his feet again, and move forward in life once more, taking up the sword once more, and restarting his training. His current goal is to master the other elements, like his father had been able to use elements other than fire, and surpass his father's control over them.
Personality - Kind, brave, righteous in spirit. Willing to stick his neck out to right wrongs, to put his life at risk to fight evil. Generous to friends and those in need of aid. He is not as much of a crusader/paladin as his father was, for he is willing to break with honor to do what is needed to right wrongs, but doesn't have a full aversion to the law. He idolizes his father, who he saw as one of the greatest heroes of DaeLuin. However, he can be cocky at times, and overconfident, due his nature of being talented in combat and in things magical. He usually acts alone, not wanting to put other people at risk to achieve his goals, but can work with other heroes if need be. He shows great respect to the deities of the realm, though he hates Xunatar and Dalanesca for killing his father. He is also respectful to elders.
