Uesugi Kenshin
kenshin-basara-devil-kings.JPG (36962 bytes)


The leader of the Uesugi clan, Uesugi Kenshin is a devout monk to Bishamonten and a rival to Shingen Takeda. Kenshin's accomplishments in battle have earned him the nickname "God of War". He is an extremely fast and powerful warrior, and a cunning tactician. Kenshin's historical rivalry with Shingen Takeda was preserved in the Sengoku Basara series: Kenshin considers him as his fated rival, and the man that gives him the highest thrill in battle.

Although it's assumed in the storyline that Kenshin is a "he"... Kenshin's exact gender is not truly stated. It is speculated that Kenshin is a man, however the creator of the series stated that Kenshin's exact gender is simply "unknown". This follows historical rumors that Keshin was a woman disguising herself as a man.
FUN FACTS: "Kenshin" means spirit sword in Japanese. Kenshin uses a katana and fights using the style of Iaido, comparable to the likes of Ukyo Tachibana from Samurai Shodown or Vergil from Devil May Cry 3.
