Taiga Saito is a 25 year old male of Japanese descent born to Tendo Saito and Yuriko Saito. At a young age Taiga was a very curious energy filled child unlike most children he was more entertained by sneaking out of bed and ease dropping on his father, who was hard at work in his laboratory then throwing tantrums. For most of his childhood he couldn’t phantom the processes that were at work, within the lab but never the less his thirst for knowledge only grew. Even when he got to close and was caught he was scolded and sent away, but this never deterred him it just made him want to learn more about what was going on. Finally at the age of 12 his father finally tolerated him in the lab with him but still only as an observer. By this time he started to understand that his father was doing some amazing research and was focusing his research on paranormal technology. The term shinigami came up as a comparison in a lot of his work. To Taiga it seemed that his father was infatuated by them. He coined them in his own words as “The invisible crusaders who watched over us humans.” Father himself claimed to have seen one himself in the process of his research, but who knows if he was just exaggerating for the sake a children’s tale. One thing father did, confide in me was his dream, and the ultimate goal of his research. He had such respect for the shinigami, he felt that if he could learn the methods of their power, he himself could reverse engineer it into a way for humans to stand alongside them and protect their world with their own hands. He looked it as man’s responsibility to do their own part, not just rely on shinigami to bail them out.
Over the many years I watched my father create prototype after prototype, and expose himself to energies that were far beyond the reach of humans in the name of science. I always wondered if one of these days he would end up being the death of himself. Many prototypes and many successes as well as failures later he finally caught the attention of high ranking government officials , many of which were willing to fund him and his endeavors, for a peace of the pie. But he had all the money he needed so he turned them down time after time he felt that they would abuse his research and use it for the wrong means. So with his own fortune he formed the entirety of his research into a think tank company he named Saitobashi industries, a company named after his own father. By this time I had graduated high school with top honors and with fathers connections In America secured an opportunity to study engineering and astrophysics at MIT. I was reluctant to go, but father gave me no choice, almost as if he was preparing me to follow in his footsteps. When I left for America his research was at a dead end, my father had the technology but had not yet mastered the technology to power his prototypes.
In America I kept to myself and put my head into the books with hopes that one day I could gain the knowledge to help my father complete his life’s work. Many years went by and I did very well in MIT, my professors always preached that I was my father’s son. i was always excited to video call my father whenever I learned something new, but as time went on it seemed like my father and I became more out of touch, most of the time my mother was the only one to chat with me, It was always your father has locked himself in the lab again, or some other motherly excuse to avoid telling me he was too busy. A few times mother had told me she heard strange howls and voices coming from fathers lab, but she never would dare to disturb him. A few days prior to my graduation I didn’t hear from my parents, which was out of the normal. My mother of all people would always keep in touch, and then one day I received, a package a silver metal case and a letter from one of my father’s closest researchers. He didn’t go into much detail as he stated he didn’t know what truly happened. But the letter stated that my parents were both found dead outside of the company’s headquarters. It seemed as if they were both cut too shreds the letter stated. I broke down and mourned their loss and in two days I somberly took my degree and the case and went back home. My grief slowly turned to anger and my anger compelled me to open the case. Upon opening the case I found a small note in my father’s hand writing that read. “If the Soul Breaker System is in your possession it means that I have paid the ultimate price for my work. Now son you’re the only one left, Finish were I left off and realize my dream Sincerely, Saito Tendo.” As I removed the Bracer like device from the case and clutched it in my hand, I swore I would uphold my father’s dream and I would one day take revenge on whoever took my parents from me. This was now my fight!

It currently only holds two power cells.

Shielding: The body of the armor produces a protective shielding that reduces damage from attacks by 30% until depleted.

The shielding takes 3 posts to recover or a sacrifice of another system such as reducing speed / strength etc to instantly recover them.
