:bulletblue: History:
Jou grew up in Japan and was taken in by his Grandmother at 5 years old. His mother was 16 when she had him, conceiving him after having an affair with an older man. Being too immature to look after him, she left him to be raised by his Grandmother. He has only seen her a few times during his life.

At 7 years old, he was already working as a part-time newspaper carrier, helping out in his grandmother's bookstore as a "co-owner" (as his grandmother usually joked about) and taking classes in a public elementary school at the same time. During his elementary days, he was a hard worker but was often teased by his school mates. The comments were mostly made about his mother. They called her names and teased him about being the result of a perverse affair, so as being a bastard child. He soon grew tired of this and tried to fight back. This lead to him being beaten up by his alternative peers.

He was strong and won most fights. His classmates stopped teasing him but in turn he was getting in trouble with the authority. When he realized this was causing his grandmother shame and stress, he quickly stopped and promised to do better. Unfortunately when he stopped fighting, his classmates started to tease him again. He tried not to start another fight with them, but they ganged up on him to get him back for what he did to them. He never fought back against them so he got hurt. When his grandmother found out then he was immediately transferred to a new school, Higashimori High School. After graduating he wishes to have dojo of his own.
