Hideo is one of the last descendants of the Masamune clan of blacksmiths, famous for their "non-standard" methods of smithing. As a young and talented enchanter, he was arrogant and his arrogance led to him making some powerful enemies back home. Masamune eventually emigrated to UCAS to start fresh. He set up a sushi restaurant in Seattle called "Bamboo House" and married an American woman, finally settling down in his new home with kids and all. Hideo is a proud American and well to do small business owner. Hideo also manages an extremely profitable business, as a talismonger.

He is the keeper of the Muramasa Blade. It is a very well guarded secret.
