Outline: Chipp is a ninja who wants to become president to correct everything that's wrong with the world. He is also one of the few people in the world able to wield the power of ki.

Chipp grew up in some of the US's worst slums, and before long, he was selling drugs as part of a gang. His life was being shaped up to be short and brutal until he met Tsuyoshi, who instructed him in the martial arts. This training honed not only Chipp's body but also his moral center and his spirit and helped him cast aside his dark past. He became an ardent fan of Japan, but his knowledge of its culture remained relatively shallow. He often misunderstood vital elements of it in an attempt to be more Japanese.

Chipp's interest now is in what causes a society to fall to ruin. So he aspires to become president: The person with the absolute political power necessary to combat that decline.

He is acquainted with Erica since she was President of the United States.

Personality: Chipp is hot-headed and not really what anyone would call a thinker. He is more of a street brawler than a college student. He has had some political and social training and is aware of his coarse nature, but he regards it as an asset, not a liability.

His methods may be crude, but the morality he's learned from his master never wavers, and his straightforward approach, bull-headed as it may be, has captured the hearts of his people. He has earned the respect and admiration of those he had saved, and many affectionately call him "boss."

Chipp's interest now is in what causes a society to fall to ruin, and so he aspires to become president: The person with the absolute political power necessary to combat that decline.

As countries like Illyria grow, there are still large communities that the government cannot or will not reach out to. These poor and disenfranchised communities are where Chipp does his work, trying to change the social order from the bottom up. At first he and his companions seemed like a violent group of bandits, but before long his community grew to more than 20,000 strong. This seemed to Chipp like his chance to fulfill his dream of becoming president, and he founded his country: The Eastern Chipp Kingdom. At around the same time, Ramlethal Valentine declared war on the human race. Thinking that her defeat would earn him the international clout necessary to pursue his dreams, Chipp set off for the ruins of Japan, where Ramlethal waited.

During the Cradle Incident, he participated in its resolution with hopes that it might boost his country's PR. Currently, he is independently investigating the most recent occurrences, and is trying to find the "real" culprit behind the chain of events. When he discovers this, he immediately takes the information to Ky Kiske.

Personality: Chipp is hot-headed and not really what anyone would call a thinker - he's more street brawler than college student. He has had some political and social training, and is aware of his own coarse nature, but he regards it as an asset, not a liability.

His methods may be crude, but the morality he's learned from his master never wavers, and his straightforward approach, bull-headed as it may be, has captured the hearts of his people. He's earned the respect and admiration of those he's saved - which is not an insignificant number - and many affectionately call him "boss."
