Gaira Caffeine



Gaira is a huge (and sometimes not so smart) young monk-in-training. He is the grandchild of Nicotine. One day, he and Nicotine got into a huge fight. This caused Gaira to leave his home and venture on his own. During his travels, he witnessed Zankuro killing an entire village and was terrified by the sight. After Zankuro left the scene, Gaira was angered at himself for fearing Zankuro. He decided to go out on a journey to hunt Zankuro. During his search, he found out that Zankuro was killed. He searched for his body and buried it and built him a grave. This grave was named Onizuka. But shortly after, the grave was destroyed. He then sensed that Zankuro's soul was resurrected and sealed once again. Feeling that the one who sealed Zankuro's soul is too dangerous, he heads out to Shimabara to find out who it is. At the end of Samurai Shodown V, he is comically shaved bald at the whim of several other hairless characters.

Gaira one funny looking mo-fo. lol. As the replacement "big guy" of Samurai Shodown III & IV, he added a lot of personality and a cool fighting style to the series. His weapon of choice (giant prayer beads), is innovative and interesting from the start. Under the control of a skilled player, he's a certainly a tough opponent... and can even hold his own against the bladed-wielding samurai characters. Overall, he was a solid addition to the series.
