He is a mysterious, feared
gunfighter, hired by the Organization. He first appeared in the second
Toshinden tournament, hiding in the shadows while watching the participants
battle each other. Afterwards, he entered the third tournament hosted by
Abel. However, when Eiji
Shinjo destroyed the Organization and killed his leader, Vermilion
fled the scene.
10 years later, a fourth tournament
was announced which was secretly being held by Eiji in an attempt to lure
out Vermilion. After learning about the true powers of the Four Sacred
Arms and discovering that the tournament was to include fighters wielding
them, Vermillion entered the tournament, hoping to retrieve them.
