Himura Kenshin is a character from the anime Rurouni Kenshin.
They have been indexed as Male Adult with Blue eyes and Red hair that is To Waist length.

During the Bakumatsu Revolution, Himura Kenshin was known by the name Hitokiri Battousai, which translates as Blade Drawing Master Assassin. Using the deadly Hiten Mitsurugi sword style from Japan's Feudal Era, Battousai was able to kill people faster than the blink of an eye. Anyone he targeted was already dead before they knew it. However, during the course of the war, something happened to forever change Battousai from a fearsome hitokiri into a peaceful Rurouni who refused to kill. After the war ended, Battousai threw down his daisho (katana and wakizashi) and took up the Sakabatou, with its reversed edges so that he could fight without killing.

He wandered Japan for ten years, helping people and seeking to atone for all the horrible things he had done as a hitokiri. Finally, after ten years of wandering, he walked into Tokyo on a chilly winter morning and was accosted by a young woman who wielded a wooden sword and accused him of killing people using her sword style's name...
