Personality and traitsEdit
Hehichiro Matsumori possessed an athletic build and a small, thin mustache. Considered an honorable man, loyal to his country and the Emperor, it was that trait which earned him the assignment in Bangkok. Matsumori believed in the superiority of Japanese culture, with China then the rest of Asia second and third. While he admired some aspects of Western culture, Matsumori thought it would be quick to collapse and inferior to the Asian cultures.
