A young and brave adventurer, raised in the art of the Shinjo Ryu school of swordsmanship and bushido. He enters the tournament for thrills, but it seems as if that is a front. What is this young man truly looking for?
Eiji Shinjo is the primary protagonist of the Toshinden REDUX series.
From the mountainous regions of Kanto, Japan, in the historic region of Aizu in Fukushima Prefecture, renowned for its samurai throughout the country, lives Eiji Shinjo. Born of noble and legendary blood from the Genji aristocratic families, Eiji is also the youngest master of the Shinjo Ryu school of Bushido, taught to him by his father and eldest brother, Sho. Left fatherless when he was only 6, his only brother taught him the craft while his mother, a renowned seamstress and tailor of traditional Japanese apparel, known for putting the Kyoto Nishijin schools of weaving to shame, supported them through their lives along with the family fortune.
But when he was 17, Sho immediately vanished after challenging him to a duel, and mysteriously bequeathed him the title of Master in the school. Completely shocked and left without any reasons for his departure, her mother soon spoke the truth behind the events of Sho and his father's death. Eiji then took off into the world, searching for him for over two years in underworld fighting circuits and martial arts societies, but did not find any trace of his whereabouts.
Upon two years after his venture, a mysterious man and woman, formally dressed in black, came to his training halls after his last class. Bearing invitations to the Toshinden Tournament, Eiji initially declined, until the invitees mentioned the registration of "a certain Sho Shinjo". Hearing the name of his eldest brother, Eiji immediately accepted the invitation in attempts to finally confront him.
