Meiyo is disciplined and devoted to his family's personal code which they refer to as bushido. He strives to uphold righteousness, courage, benevolence, respect, sincerity, honor, loyalty, and self-control. Meiyo is strong and determined wishing to spread and protect justice as well as uphold his family's honor.
Meiyo Shinsei was born to Kasai and Tsuki of the Shinsei noble family of the Fire Nation. The Shinsei family has been known to uphold bushdio principles for generations in service to the fire lord as such Meiyo was taught kenjutsu (swordsmanship), iado (sword drawing), naginatajutsu (pole-arm fighting), kyudo (archery), jujutsu (ground grappling), and akido (stand-up grappling) by his father Kasai over the course of his life from around 8 years of age.
Meiyo was also taught more academic fields of study by his mother Tsuki as he grew older and learned much about horsemanship and bushido code. He served in the Fire Nation's police force for a time before discovering a growing corruption among them. He tried to expose the corrupt cops only to be assaulted at his home for it later. Although he and his parents managed to kill many of the attackers, in the end Tsuki was slain and Kasai lay dying. Kasai asked his son to ensue their lineage survives and Meiyo promised him he would, satisfied Kasai chose to commit senpaku (ritual suicide) rather than die of his wounds.
Deeming the Fire Nation no longer safe for him, Meiyo left the for the Earth Republic and tried to become an honest mercenary. However he found this work to be detestable as he was often triked into nearly taking innocent lives. Hearing of the Republic City citizenship program Meiyo decided to head to Republic City in order to try to find a righteous cause there.
