It doesn't take a rocket scientist to tell that Jaden's definitely full of himself. He just has the energy of someone who thinks they're top of the world! Just the way he walks into a place, acting like he's the number one - homie can walk into the Whitehouse like the place is some hole in the wall bar. He definitely has tons of energy as he has a bounce to his step, often dancing around like some kind of fool. The guy constantly has a cocky smile on his face and speaks with confidence - perhaps a bit too much confidence. Jaden is known for speaking with a mild Philadelphia accent, as he treats the world as his playground. Like everything's one big game to him... because it is!
Jaden's pretty tall and lanky at 6'5ft, and has a slim, but muscular build. You wouldn't be mistaken for thinking that he's a Nomad given how much he trains and works out... not counting the swords that he carries around with him. Jaden has two swords strapped to his back and one at his hip, and the straps go all around his torso and hips. Jaden usually wears a T-shirt, and some sweat pants - for maximum comfort and style (Baby!). He's African-American with hair and facial features consistent with that demographic. Most notably he has a head full of black dreads with some of it tied into a ponytail like he's some samurai.
Also he always has a joint hangin' from his lips.
PERSONALITY TRAITS"♫ You know you don't wan' none of dis', all the haters best suck my dick. ♫"▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
Arrogant Bastard: Jaden is probably the biggest obnoxious tool in the Nomadic Odyssey setting! He's so full of energy and thinks that he's on top of the world for some reason. Probably because he's a famous rapper and thinks that he's untouchable. Whatever Jaden does or whoever he faces, he goes into it with a smile. The guy can be quite cocky and always has a quip or whatever snarky comment and it's obvious this is all a game to him. Jaden is after becoming the greatest, little else!
Sense of Justice: Despite it all, Jaden always had a hard time standing by and letting scumbags like MIRAGE, Oh-One, and Horizon pouch on the little man. Jaden may play it off for publicity, but he's been up against them since the beginning. Though, Jaden is very short-sighted and arrogant... and sometimes finds himself barking up the wrong trees. He's hard on people who "sell their soul" to join them.
BACKSTORY"Now this is a story all about how, my life got flipped turned upside down"▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
The story of the Ronin Rapper begins in Philadelphia, baby! Where they signed the Declaration of Independence, fitting for a dude like Jaden who loves his freedom! Jaden started as some nobody hoodrat kid that went around causing trouble while experimenting with music. You see, Jaden dreamed of becoming the next big thing in the rap game, and like hell, he was going to let that dream come to him. Nah, brah, seize the day, every opportunity Jaden was practicing making beats, or rapping out some lyrics. He was a young rapper that put his music everywhere, even selling his CDs on the corner. Until he made it... an underground rap competition, and boy it was some stiff competition. He was up against veterans of the underground rap game and... he got demolished. Still, he made a huge impression on the people there, enough to attract the attention of a record deal.
It was incredible at the time... but he was still some nobody rapper. No matter how hard the nighty Jaden tried to shine, he just couldn't get the traction he desired (At best he got one of his songs in a fighting game). Which he thought was bullshit, super bullshit. Whenever Jaden checked the news, it was Nomad this, Nomad that, and he... got a great idea. No matter how hard Jaden looked, he couldn't find anything about a Nomad Rapper (a buncha fuckboys were fighting with guitars, but that shit dumb). However, becoming a Nomad seemed harder than it sounded. He needed to find an excellent teacher... and that lead him to the land of the rising sun.
More specifically, Sensei Hirokazu. He was an old ninja master dude that was legendary... for his fucking greed. It took almost all of Jaden's money to get under his wing and boy it was some crazy shit. It sounded fun... but a lot of it was boring shit, like sitting around meditation in the woods, to the dojo, to the side of a mountain, and all that shit. He said it was for "discipline" but Jaden thought that he was bullshitting because he had all of Jaden's money. However, he didn't realize that it was all ki-building exercises and throughout the years he built up a huge ass supply of that ki stuff! And then the cool ninja training began and Jaden became the world's greatest rapper slash ninja (Mostly because he was the only one with a horse in that race).
However, Sensei Hirokazu, in the past, told Jaden about an artifact known as Murakumo. The Legendary Japanese blade was used to defeat the legendarily powerful Oni clan but sealed away just in case it was needed again. Some fucknut named Jotaro stole the sword but Sensei Hirokazu knew that, while Jotaro was his rival, the blade was in safe hands.
Yeah, it was.
Jaden was sick and tired of sitting around in some ratty ass dojo in the middle of Japan, so he decided to snatch this ancient artifact from Jotaro's ninja clan. He first wondered why the fuck were there like five ninja clans in the middle of modern Japan. Then he found their super-secret ninja compound in the mountains (what Ninjas they were). Infiltrating his compound in the mountains was easy... but, he blew it at the last second, and revealed himself to Jotaro. He got viciously thrashed by the ninja master until he grabbed the legendary blade Murakumo for himself, and slashed Jotaro with it. The overwhelming power of the sword allowed Jaden to defeat Jotaro with one slash and lost himself to the sword. He went on a rampage, destroying the compound with the blade. After his rampage was cover, he managed to collect himself, and realize what he's done.
Jaden decided to fuck off out of Japan after that... and found out that Jotaro, in the ultimate bitch move, blamed Jaden for the stolen sword. So Jaden was hauling ass all over the world, being chased by various fuckwits and some psycho tryna shove her stick up his ass. This was what Jaden called his "world tour". He used these battles against the bounty hunters, assassins, and that weirdo with a stick to boost his popularity and then he performed rap concerts (which were almost always crashed by the bounty hunters, except for like one time. Which was a very boring concert).
Then that was when Jaden decided to become a bounty hunter himself! He went around catching and cashing bounties... and fighting in cool ass tournaments. He was set to fight in the Brazilian Fighting Cup or whatever, for that cool ass power stone, which he was going to make a chain out of. Unfortunately that fucker Oh-One showed up. And unfortunately, he nabbed the Power Stone. And unfortunately, that nut with the staff finally caught up with Jaden and she successfully shoved her staff up his asshole in what was probably the most painful experience of his young life. It felt like it was going to pop out through the top of his skull, that's how hard and swiftly she rammed it up his ass.
And she took Murakumo back to Japan.
Afterward... Jaden had to sit out a majority of the battle against Oh-One, however, he too joined the chase to get that power stone after realizing how fucking incompetent Jonas was. Like it wasn't rocket science getting a fucking pebble, so, to bring an end to this foolishness, Jaden joined the chase at the last second and fought Oh-One in Antarctica with the rest of them.
While the rest of the Nomadic Fist "retired" to Gold City (which he thought was fucking stupid), he went on a world tour. Rapping all over the world and fighting Nomads, putting in that work baby!
It ended in Gold City because reasons.

SKILLS & ABILITIES"What do you mean ninjas are supposed to be stealthy? Ever seen anime, kid?!"▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
Jaden is the Ninja Superstar himself, baby! Ain't nobody on Earth can match his skill. To be specific, Jaden is a trained practitioner of Ninjutsu. He's supposed to be the master of stealth and mobility and all that shit and Jaden just throws all that nonsense out the window for some flashy, direct action. Jaden uses it to zip around the battlefield, doing hops, flips, and even teleporting! To put it simply; Jaden possesses a lot of high-mobility techniques that let him close in on opponents while having plenty of hard-hitting moves that take the enemy out quickly. Jaden fights with a mixture of hand-to-hand and his three trusty katanas to whoop some ass when necessary. Slashes, kicks, grabs, you name it. Probably his most famous technique is teleportation, baby! He can pretty much instantly teleport anywhere insight by doing his ninja pose and he uses this to link a lot of his attacks, dodges other attacks, and also cut n' run when shit gets too real for him. Expect him to teleport all over the place while beating you up.
SIGNATURE MOVES"I got the moves that drop panties!"▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
Jaden's main method of getting around. By focusing, doing the Japanese salute, he can teleport to a specific point in a poof of smoke. Should he teleport behind an enemy, he can follow it up with an attack or a slash of his blades. He can chain teleports but he can only teleport a few times in a row before he gets tired.
■ CD's Nuts
Jaden pulls out some CDs of his various mixtapes and albums and charges them with ki bullshit and tosses them at the enemy like a shuriken.
■ Smokescreen N...
Jaden tosses a smoke grenade onto the ground to give him cover.
■ Judo Flip
Jaden can suddenly flip up into the air, rolling as he comes to the ground. In the middle of this technique, he can follow it up with a kick, a grapple, or a downward slash of one of his swords.
Jaden grabs both his blades and spins around while jumping upward. It's enough to take enemies out that are above him, while also getting enemies up into the air.
Jaden can leap off the walls (or any surface) that he can get to. If he can get to another wall, he can keep wall bouncing, as he overwhelms his opponents with speed. He can quickly lead wall bounce into any other move, to confuse foes.
■ Ninja Slam
Jaden will grab his opponent, teleport into the air holding them, and bring them down to the ground head first.
Jaden... runs on the wall. Does it need an essay, you crayon eater?
■ Drop The Mic
Jaden pulls out his microphone and throws it at the ground... and it explodes, launching any enemy nearby in the air. And even after it explodes he can somehow pull out another one.
■ Houdini N...
Jaden poses and if he attacks he'll disappear in a cloud of smoke, appearing somewhere else.
■ Shit, Wrong Smoke
Jaden throws down a smoke grenade... and then realizes it's his weed grenade and gets the enemy high. Slowing them down for a period.
Jaden spins around really fast with his foot out and kicks the enemy like a tornado. If he does this too long he'll have to stop to throw up.
■ These Bars Be Fire
Jaden pulls out his microphone (if he didn't throw all of them) and drops a fire verse. If he isn't interrupted, he will, for a short period of time, imbue all of his attacks with extra fire damage.

■ Ninja, Ninja, Ninja!
Jaden grabs the opponent before teleporting them away into the sky... and then they see thousands of CD's flying towards them. It's not explained or clear how he does this.
■ 200% Ninja
Jaden teleports... but several balls of smoke appear around the opponent. Coming out of one of them, Jaden launches a decisive slash at their back.
■ Jaden's Greatest Hits
Jaden throws a barrage of CD's at the opponent with unrivaled speeds.
■ Rap God
Jaden's power stone super. Using the Power Stone he briefly ascends to Rap Godhood and charges a singular CD with beats so fire that it bursts into flame. It becomes hot enough to cut through the strongest opponents when he throws it.
WEAKNESSES & LIMITS"Outta my way, I take large steps!"▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
Jaden's attacks, while fast and damaging, leave him open, as he's trying to use a fighting style that wasn't meant for upfront fights. If he misses, or an opponent blocks, they can capitalize on it and string him into a combo. Jaden is also very cocky, and the type to rush headfirst without thinking. Not exactly a thinker, but more of a doer.
