Tetsu“ Young people these days don't know how to take care of themselves. Only taking a bath once a day.... ”
Tetsu is a bathmaker from Lakewest. Tetsu is extremely passionate about baths and bathing, coming up with new designs for new and different types of baths. In 457, he got a son, Goro, who also became a bathmaker and saw his father as his greatest rival.
Tetsu considered himself an out of work bathmaker when he met the leader of the New State Army, but he was so impressed with his toasty looks that he offered to make custom baths for the New State Army Headquarters. He encouraged people to decorate their baths, saying the best bath was that which felt like home.
Following the Dunan Unification War, Tetsu returned to Lakewest, where he began work on the largest bathhouse in the Dunan Republic. Years later, his son challenged him to a Bath Match which Tetsu won. This would inspire Goro to build a new bath made of new materials.
- Tetsu has five different bath designs you can choose: Drum, Cypress, Marble, Jungle, and Open Air.
