Founding Day, the enigmatic launch of Cybertronic sent ripples through time and space. Ripples, that not only changed the life of every human alive three hundred years ago, but still affect many in some rather unexpected ways today.

Henrik Taniyama is one of them. The Taniyama clan, a small holding within Mishima, was split in half on Founding Day. Much of the clan slipped out in the middle of the night to join the upstart Cybertronic, while the family’s old guard stayed true to their Mishiman allegiance. It would take several centuries to prove their loyalty was unswerving. Demonhunters often choose their apprentices from those who have suffered greatly from the Dark Legion, and Henrik Taniyama was no exception. Sole survivor of a Dark Legion raid when travelling to Longshore, the orphaned Henrik was selected by the legendary Demonhunter Otokorashi Norisu. Under Norisu’s tutelage, Henrik progressed quickly, graduating to full Demonhunter status when he felled a Mercurian Maculator at the tender age of seventeen. The Taniyama fiefdom, located near the Mercurian North Pole, was the perfect proving ground. Its harsh climate and variation of blistering heat and freezing cold was perfect especially for one quick of thought, quick of motion and iron of will. In the course of a mission that brought the blue and red armoured Demon Hunter to Mars, he was betrayed by an informant within Mishima and left for dead. He may even have been: the records remain unclear. Fortunately for Taniyama, Cybertronic citizen 43D29 was operating a trans-hauler in the vicinity. Outside the company 43D29 was better known as Kuren Taniyama. Kuren recognised the familial seal on the battered Demon Hunter’s armour and brought him to ‘Facility 53Beta’ where Cybertronic did what they do best. After long and expensive negotiations, the Mishiman family leveraged a great amount of their mineral wealth in exchange for Cybertronic returning their ‘restored’ Demon Hunter. Rumours circulate that Henrik is in fact a clone of the original, and that Cybertronic may even have kept the gene material for further projects, but the truth may never be known. The only facts are that a year later he emerged ready for battle, more focused than ever before in his bright but short career. Henrik has since adopted the name Shiryo-X, and a cold calculated demeanour has replaced an expected need for vengeance. It is thought that most of his natural limbs have been replaced with cybernetic variants, controlled by the same Subcortex Transmitter that allows him to control the additional limbs of his armour. Shiryo-X’s personal armaments: the Ghostfire Flamethrower, Demontooth Katana and Soulscourger, mean
he has equal ability to eliminate Dark Legion threats both at short range and in close combat. He has led Mishima to victory in his new and personalised ebon and gold armour many times, including at the brutal battle for Gakki Island on Venus and the final assault alongside Cybertronic on the corrupted Capitol asteroid base of Franklin. While his motives and allegiances remain his own, there is no question
about the honour or ferocity of the warrior known simply as Shiryo-X .
