Kenshin is known for the 'X' mark on his left cheek. One '\' was given to him by one of his targets while he worked as an assassin. Not to long after, the fiance of that target, gave him the other '/'. Since then he quit working as an assassin and devoted his life to saving people instead of killing people. Throught out the series he meets several people which help him along the way.
