A teenager with colored hair, Kaz does very little to try and stand out, though somehow he always seems to. With a pair of hazel brown eyes and a normal physique for his age, both these are usually ignored for the wild mane of pink hair that sits atop his head.
Kaz is an inventor, and therefore always keeps a pair of goggles on hand to protect his eyes while he's working. They usually sit atop his head, for easy access and less chance of being lost.
Kazuma can be described as a young man with drive. While like any teenager, Kazuma seeks excitement and fun. He loves to travel, he loves to sightsee, and he's not particularly shy about meeting people. He's quite helpful although at times he may get his greed get the better of him.
He doesn't exactly know if he likes being an inventor, but he definitely knows he's good at it. Besides, what kind of young man doesn't enjoy blowing something up every now and again. And there's something almost instinctively pleasing about fighting.
Kaz is also a man who believes that the world can always become worse than it is. This is reflected in how he fights and the lengths he'll go to if he believes he can achieve his goals. He dislikes killing, and in fact, he's never done it before, but given his nature, it's unknown how he'll act if the situation comes up.
Kazuma grew up in Stonewall Valley, amongst the plethora of cyborgs that lived there. To live in such a place, you would look like a fool to not know about the basics of cybernetics and engineering. Because of this Kazuma was subjected to a large amount of mechanical knowledge at an early age by his parents. He came from a loving home with two wonderful parents who loved him. Though at times it became questionable to Kazuma whether they would've traded him away for a vintage speedboat with original engine and rutters.
As a child, Kaz was sometimes bullied. Usually, it was by neighborhood kids who had cybernetic limbs. Normie, Pinky, Rosebud were the insults of choice from them. Unfortunately, it led to Kaz being involved in fights and unfortunately fighting a guy with metal limbs isn't exactly a fair fight. Which only meant Kaz had to let them abuse him or learn how to fight back.
As Kazuma grew older, his interests changed from simple inventions to designing vehicles that he hoped to one day create. Understanding that there was no real work on Stonewall Valley that could satisfy his curiosity and creativity, nor pay very well, he decided to leave home. With the blessings of his parents, he told them that he'd return one day, having created things the world had never seen.
While traveling he seems to have found himself taking work as a mechanic, a bounty hunter, and whatever pays well really.

Combat Style Edit
Kazuma's fighting style is called Elric Street Brawling, for no other reason than he learned it on that street. He has no formal training, but he does have one rule. Win.
Kaz will throw chin blows, go for the eyes, groin kick, setting off explosives near your face, and more. He will do whatever he has to to make sure you stay down. In addition to cheap tricks, he began wearing armored gauntlets and grieves. Not just to help protect his hands when working on explosives, but to give him an edge against those with hardened bodies.
Even without any inventor trick, Kaz's style is akin to Fifty-Two Hand Blocks, a subset of Jailhouse Rock. A combat style which takes normal boxing and adds elements of karate, such as elbow blocking, knee strikes, and jabs that can come from anywhere.

|Description: A small orange shell, no bigger than a golf ball, which shatters with a hard enough impact. It contains a goopy, paint-like substance, which splatters from the shell once cracked.

|Name: Rapid Epoxy|
|Rank: 16||Cost: 4||Range: Short||Branch From: Opaque Acrylic|
|Description: A small gray shell, no bigger than a golf ball, which shatters with a hard enough impact. It contains a goopy paint-like substance that expands like an extremely fast rising dough, shortly after the shell is cracked and then hardens in seconds, becoming like cement making it somewhat hard to remove or move the encased area. Though it can be contained in its shell, after expanding, there's enough to cover a single limb. After some time, the substance becomes incredibly brittle and falls off. [4-6 Turns]|
|Name: Searing Acid|
|Rank: 16||Cost: 4||Range: Short||Branch From: Opaque Acrylic|
|Description: A small green shell, no bigger than a golf ball, which shatters with a hard enough impact.

Because of the viscosity of the substance, it can cover a great deal of area fairly quickly and be quite hard to completely remove. [4-6 Turns]|
- Nothing worth mentioning.
- Kazuma's face claim is an aged-up version of Tsunami Jousuke.
