Project Main Details
Tomo is a master ninja who was badly injured by and then exiled from his own clan. He became an assassin of ninjas out of revenge against the community which spurned him. After one assassination went wrong, Tomo died but was resurrected as a cyborg. His mission hasn’t changed: revenge against those who have wronged him.
Tomo is in his mid 20s. He is unconventional, vulgar, anti-establishment and unpredictable. He is the type to take a look at the absurdity and pointlessness of life and throw back his head and laugh. He has a twisted sense of humor and takes pride in his fierce independence. In contradiction to his rough, blue-collar personality, Tomo is also highly intelligent. He is supremely confident in his skills. While some might be horrified at involuntary cyborg surgery, Tomo likes it. He speaks in short, memorable bursts. We’re looking for an actor equally adept at energetic, gleeful insanity (bring your best evil laugh) as well as quieter, laconic “tough guy” cool. Tomo is a villain, an extreme anti-hero who takes pleasure in the chaos he creates and who is capable of sitting back and watching the world burn.

Scene 1: Tomo encounters a ninja who has come to retrieve a sword Tomo stole.
Tomo is lounging under a cherry tree, chewing on a little stick, seemingly unconcerned. His left arm is crippled and hangs limply at his side. Tomo looks up casually.
HIROSHI walks toward Tomo, into the serene courtyard in the middle of a traditional Japanese temple/dojo.
A long comic moment as Tomo continues to chew on his stick and Hiroshi stands over him.
Nice leather pajamas, Hiroshi. Where’s your ball
I’m here for your sword and for your life.
You are? That’s too bad. ‘Cause I’m here to carve your skull into a noodle bowl and slurp your brains like they were noodles. And after I’m done eating your noodle brains? I’ll flip your skull over and wear it like a fucking hat. What do you think of that?
Hiroshi narrows his eyes then unsheathes his sword. Tomo slowly rises, unsheathes his own sword. Hiroshi tucks his off-hand behind his back.
This will be a fair fight. I won’t use my left hand.
Shot that favors Tomo’s cripple arm. Tomo grimly smiles.
Neither will I.
They lock swords in combat.
Scene 3: At a brothel, Tomo confronts an old informant who can tell him where his next target is.
JACKIE V, a skinny greaseball who speaks with a panicked whine, is backed up to the wall by Tomo.
Tomo! I thought you were dead!
Tomo advances and Jackie V continues to shrink back. Jackie V tries to play it cool but fails miserably.
So... what brings you to Kyoto?
Tell me where Hiroshi is, or I shove my arm up your ass and wear you like a sock puppet.
Tomo... Tomo! Haven’t I been good to you?
Does ratting me out count as “good”?
I can’t talk! He’ll kill me, Tomo!
I’ll kill you worse.
Tomo beats Jackie V with the leg of a table. Jackie V meekly puts up his hands and screams.
Not the face. Not the fucking face!
Tell me where Hiroshi is, you piece of shit!
Tomo laughs, taking pleasure in the violence.
You enjoying this, Jackie? Huh? Huh? Hahaha.
A GEISHA MATRON, dressed in a traditional kimono, enters the room and confidently steps between Tomo and Jackie V.
You are disturbing our patrons.
Don’t push me, lady.
You must leave. You have one warning.
That’s too bad, ‘cause I usually need two.
