Story (in the Art of Fighting Series)
Eiji is an assassin ninja from the feared and respected Kisaragi clan. He had been taught the killing arts of the Kisaragi since childhood, and he also became an expert in psychokinetic transportation, as a descendant of Zantetsu he also uses the Nagare(流）and Kage(影) twin ninja daggers. His school is the sworn enemy of both the Sakazaki clan and Kyokugenryu Karate. Eiji is a mercenary, willing to kill for anyone so long as they pay well. However though he was a villain in AOF2, there was no indication he was ever a member of Mr. Big's syndicate.
Many Western players believed Eiji to be secretly in love with popular character Mai Shiranui because the US version of his Art of Fighting 2 ending implies such a thing (despite the series being set 15 years before the Fatal Fury series) The Japanese version makes no such implication.
