Yamato is a tall young man, standing at 193.04 centimeters. He sports a rather lean yet well-defined muscular physique from his continual physical conditioning. He has dark brown hair with side bangs, somewhat, framing his face. He once had his hair in a ponytail during the war, but he later cut it of to his shoulder. He his purple eyes that, on certain magics he uses, turns blood red in color. He has been noted on many occasions to be very handsome, as many women he met became infatuated with him.
Yamato usual attire consisted of a black coat with a rather decorative lapels, a dark blue sleeveless jacket, a black vest, pants, pair of long, brown boots, and a pair of a thin, dark blue arm warmers. Holding his uniform together at the waist is a black belt that is concealed his a white sash. Within the sash, he equips himself a katana and wakizashi at the left side of his waist. He continues to adorn this outfit everywhere he goes, rarely changing his attire.
Yamato was always known for his stoic expression, which became a trademark for him. Even in the face of difficulty, he remains passive and fully in control over his emotions. The only times where he shows
any emotions, are when his precious comrades are involved, but even then, his facial expression is largely unchange. It was only after that war where he starts to loosen up a bit making many wonder what happen to him.
Yamato is seemlingly always calm. He rarely changes the expression on his face and even when he does they are very subtle changes. Throughout his time during the war, he was never once seen smiling or laugh. His expressionless personality combined with his godly skills with the sword allowed him to make precise and smooth attacks without any signs of hesitation. It is because of these traits that many labeled him as a demon.
Upon settling at Fiore, Yamato develope a much more mellow personality. He began to start smiling and laugh showing signs of budding emotions never once shown due to his involvement in war. He is still, however, a calm and cautious man. Rarely does he shows signs of trouble or surprise and even then he never loses his composure. His days as a mass murderer of the war were now long gone. Instead of constantly taking lives, he decided to protect, though he will slay if absolutely necessary.
His changes in his demeanor stems from his lost love during the war and how her influence affected him for the rest of his life. He was no longer the stomic man he once was and even begins to demonstate acts of kindness. Once a merciless man who is now a kind and empathetic man living to do what he can for the future of his generations and those to come.
Before Yamato's birth, a great magical battle broke out on another continent between two neigboring countries, Sera and Lucis. It was said that the war started due to one man assassinating the King of Sera. That man was Tanaka Kimura, father of Yamato Kimura. Upon his birth, he was branded as a demon chil d because of his father. Many wanted Yamato dead for what his father has done to the two peaceful countries causing this chaos. He was only left alive due to the kindness of the village elder he saw Yamato as one of their own. The prejudiced he obtained in the village along with the lonliness of what appears to be abandonment from his own family, Yamato lived a life filled with solitude at no more the age of 7.
One day, mages of Sera, ravage the village killing nearly all the villagers. Yamato, who watched the destruction of his own home village, was shocked and frighten beyond imagination. Though those villagers treated him harshly and he hated them for it, Yamato never once thought that they deserved death. One of the mages found Yamato and was prepare to attack and kill the young boy. The mage send a powerful blast at Yamato's direction causing an explosion around the area. Out of the smoke, a nearly unconscious Yamato laid there protected by a barrier. A man appears from the smoke of the blast protecting the young child. Yamato took a quick look at the man though he was unable to tell who that man was before fainting. Hours later he awaken to witness the devastation of his village where the young child shed tears at the destruction around him. Beside him was a tall and highly muscular man. Yamato believed him to be the man that protected him earlier. The man name's was Alexander Shiba and he later became both a father and a mentor to the young child.
Over the years training under Alexander, Yamato became a powerful mage and swordsman at the age of 16. Alexander in his prime was consider as a legendary mage, whose skills in swordsmanship and magic was known all across the globe. It was due to this fame of his mentor that Yamato's previous alias as a demon child vanishes and Yamato's reputation as a powerful mage grew instead. Yamato was consider as a child of miracles due to how quickly he grew astonishing even Alexander. The times with Alexander was the first time in the young teenager's life where he finally attained happiness. However, it was cut short due to Alexander dying from an incurable disease two years later. Before Alexander's untimely death, Yamato inherited his blade, Muramasa.
At the age of 18, Yamato left the home of where his beloved mentor lived vowing to put an end to this war that his father caused. He joined the Magical Army of Lucis where he became one of their generals despite his young age due to training under Alexander. It was there that he met two young generals close
to his age, Sakurai Sasaki and Ryūhei Ito. These three man were later known as the San kenshi.
Over the course of the war, Yamato slowly turned into a cold-hearted solider of war. Though he had never once killed, he was never bother by taking down his first victim. As the Country of Lucis begins to overwhelm the forces of Sera, Yamato started to lose his humanity becoming much more like his moniker "Demon Blade". It was then he venture into a village own by Sera where he met the person that changes his life.
Originally sent to the small village as an espionage due to scout reports of a Sera army being posted there, he found a young and beautiful woman being chased by two Sera mages. Though Yamato rarely would ever interact with any civilians, he decided to recuse the young woman from the two soliders. The young woman's name was later revealed to be Aoi Inoue, his future wife.
Aoi was a benevolent young woman whose healing magic made many consider her as a holy priestess. Her kind and gentle nature causes her to heal anyone in need even the people of Lucis her enemies. It was due to this that the Sera mages chased after her for being considered as a traitor to Sera. Yamato was at first suspicious of Aoi's nature believing it to be an act. However, after a few weeks staying in the village, he determined that she truly was who she is and was prepare to leave the small village after researching that there are no Sera mages posted there. Aoi noticed that he was about to leave and stopped him asking him to stay. The people of the village knew long ago that he was not a mage of Sera but they accepted him as one of their own villagers. This began the start of both the romance and tragedy between Aoi and Yamato.
At the age of 23, Yamato stayed in the small village of Sera living peacefully with Aoi who became his wife somewhere in the five years they spend together. Aoi was pregnant with Yamato's child and they were leaving like a happy family allowing Yamato to revert back to his human nature slowly negating the effects of the war that made him into a killer. All the villagers in that small village came to love and respect the young man despite learning who he was and who he was related to. However, one villager in particular didn't give the same respect towards Yamato like the other and came to scorn him due to his blood relations. The same villager went out one night and met up with some Sera mages telling them that the "Demon Blade" of Lucis was there. Taking that information into account, they lit the village in flames.
During the destruction of the village, Yamato imediately came to Aoi's aid who was bedridden from her pregnancy. He tries his best to help her out of their home and towards safety outside from
the buring house. However, they were surrounded by those mages. Yamato went to gend them off to allow Aoi to escape. She didn't want to leave her husband out there to fight those mages alone and wishes to stay with him. He, of course, didn't want her to stay fearing for her safety. He immediately tried to defeat all those mages before him, however, he was unable to kill them. Due to Aoi's influence on him, he does his best to defeat his enemies without killing but it turns out to be his downfall. One of the mages her defeated got back up and attempted a sneak attack on Yamato as he fights with the other mages. The attack would have been sucessful save for one interference. Aoi Inoue. She saw the mage attempting the attack and got in the way of the magical blast that has made contact her stomach killing their unborn child and leaving her in a near death state. Yamato saw the event and was filled with rage finally using his magic and putting an end to the battle.
As the dying Aoi laid in his arms, Yamato weeps and attempted to use the healing magic taught to him from her to try to save her life but to no avail. Aoi attempted to speak her final words towards her beloved husband before her death. Afterward, she died with a gentle smile upon her lips. The weeping young man held onto his wife's body within the roaring flames.
Yamato finally return back to the army where many express a clear sign of relief knowing that one of theur strongest finally returned. Yamato have now gain a newfound courage to bring about an end to the war and together with Sakurai and Ryūhei, they lead the Magician Army of Lucis towards victory. During one of the final battles of the war, all three San kenshi took on the remaining opposing army alone. The battle itself took 24 hours and it was there that they became the San kenshi.
Later on a truce was made between the two countries and Yamato left Lucis towards his new home Fiore eventually meeting a woman who bears a striking resemblence towards Aoi, Yukina Nakagawa, who became one of his traveling companions.
Yamato's biological father. He was the reason that Yamato was the victim of malnevolence and why he participated within the war. Though he had never once met his own father face to face, Tanaka constantly watches his son from afar, seeing his developement. Yamato wishes to find his father and demends to know why he caused such an incident and why his father abandon him.
Alexander became both a father and mentor towards Yamato making Alexander the first family figure in his life aside from the village elder. Under Alexander's teachings, Yamato became a well-known mage where many let go of his relation towards Tanaka and looks at Yamato with amazement. After his mentor fell to a disease, Yamato was greatly sadden but he continues onward and participate in the war becoming Alexander's legacy.
One of the San kenshi and best friend of Yamato. Both are similar in personality sothat is why many assume those two got along so well. Sakurai always have great pride in his abilities but acknowledges that Yamato is the greater of the two despite both being a San Kenashi. It was due to Sakurai's legendary left-handed skills that Yamato decided to learn how to use the blade with his left hand as well becoming ambidextrous and eventually learning how to use the two swords style.
One of the San kenshi and the one that Yamato got along with the least in the Magician Army. Ryūhei is very deceptive and manipulative that Yamato is always catious whenever he is near him. While the two have high respect for each other's abilties, they are also the one that are most likely to kill each other in the battlefield. At first Ryūhei greatly admired Yamato's merciless style but after those years of being with Aoi, Ryūhei saw the changes in Yamato and hated him for becoming weaker
Yamato's ex-wife. A kind healing mage of Sera that he met during the war. He fell in love with her after a few weeks of being with her in that same village. They eventually wedded and Aoi was pregnant with his child. Aoi's influence on Yamato and her untimely death were the biggest impacts in his life. Her love of life was pass down to him making him do whatever he can to protect life beside destroy only to kill when it is absolutely necessary.
A young woman he met when he arrived at Fiore. She bears a striking resemblence towards Aoi making him almost believe that Aoi was alive. The personalities of the two woman were almost similar causing even more confusion. She became one of his traveling companion and eventually became the one to allow Yamato to forgive himself over Aoi's death.
Upon his arrival to Fiore, he later came up to a large building with Yukina which turns out to be Fairy Tail. There he met the many mages of Fairy Tail including their Guild Ace, Gildarts, before he left for his 100 years mission, Laxus before being excommunicated, and the other famous mages. While never formally joining the guild, he retains great relationship with the guild as though he was a member. Natsu would consistently challenge Yamato where he is easily defeated though the two remains good friends. Erza and Yamato got along quite well being both talented swordsmen with Erza acknowledging his skills greater. Yamato got along with Gray quite well despite being an ice mage and Yamato being a fire mage mainly. He was even there during the time where Lucy got accepted into Fairy Tail.
