When Kenpachi was born his parents gave him up to the local Kung Fu dojo in order to avoid having to take care of him. For the next 18 years kenpachi trained to become a master of kung fu. After completing his training Kenpachi set out into the world to learn even more styles of martial arts, one day hoping to become the strongest martial artist ever. Right before the outbreak he was a wandering martial artist attempting to learn fighting styles from eastern europe. Eventually along his travels he found his way to a prominent dojo located in Chernogorsk. While training to learn his newest technique, the outbreak began. At the beginning nothing seemed different within Chernogorsk, however the news of the outbreak spread to more and more people as the days passed eventually reaching Kenpachi. Upon hearing that his mentor in Chernogorsk was going to stay and continue looking after his dojo, Kenpachi also chose to stay with him. During the evacuation and subsequent looting of Chernogorsk by its own people, the dojo was burned down with Kenpachi's master inside. After grieving over his death Kenpachi vowed to stay in Chernarus in order to carry on teaching the fighting style of his master, despite the outbreak. Since making his vow kenpachi has traveled throughout the land never staying in one location for too long, during these travels he's learned crucial survival techniques allowing him to thrive in the post-apocalyptic world.
