Zeku carried with him over 600 hundred years of history and tradition in the Bushinryu school. But after shattering one of those traditions twice, he disappears to be alone. He devised a new form of martial arts in that time, one that he now wishes to establish on an international scale.Know more

Zeku is the 38th successor of the Bushinryu School of martial arts, but he went against tradition, allowing the 37th successor to live. He became a grandmaster in Ninjutsu and many other Taijutsu techniques. As part of his duty to find the next successor, Zeku came across Guy, fighting in the streets. Due to his fighting spirit, Zeku knew he would make a suitable successor and began training him.

Guy would learn enough to become the next grandmaster of the Bushinryu school. And like his master, he too would let the formerly alive. Zeku then disappeared for a time.

When he was on his own, Zeku developed a new martial art to expand his new technique. He attempted to recruit Ibuki and Karin, though only the latter would take his offer after being defeated by him in combat.
