Kaneki is a air-head a lot of the time not realizing the things going on. He is biased towards benders tending to dislike them while at the same time friendly towards them. He is a kind hearted person in his heart and loves trading. He is also weak but wants to be strong so trains a lot. He loves people in general and animals even more so.
Kaneki was born in the Earth Republic and was treated badly as a child. He was hardly fed or given clothes except by the villages he and his "family" visited. They weren't his real family...his parents had given him up at birth. As the caravan had crawled through the road relying more so on old technology then new...they found a basket with a blanket and little boy inside of it. They took him in and after discussing it for a night decided to give the child a name. Kaneki is what they had chosen for him hoping that they didn't regret it later praying that he didn't become a bender.
As he became a young kid he ran around and was often punished for it yet always seemed to anyway not learning. He became an air-head by the age of five always out of it seeming to be out on his own somewhere. When he wasn't out of it he listened to the conversations around him not being active anymore. "Go away you scum." He heard things like that a lot of the time whenever a bender would come to buy from them. They were biased towards benders which he realized at a older age and grew into that himself a bit. Yet when he reached the age of ten and entrusted to sell items he sold to the benders and non-benders with the same attitude.
His bias towards them was caused by something else for the most part. Which had occured when he was 12. He had trained with a bunch of martial arts teachers from time to time going from village to village learning many different styles but never getting close to mastering them. On his twelfth birthday as they were celebrating a group of earth and fire benders raided their camp killing everyone though he had managed to hold back from screaming and crying hiding as it all went down. After they had raided everything and left he came out gazing upon the ravaged camp site. Singed corpses all around some with spikes of earth through them.
He sighed blocking all emotion as he went and grabbed a shovel which they had left. He got to work digging holes working restlessly digging at least thirty of them going and dragging the bodies in separately before filling them up this process having taken three days. He was surprised nobody had found them and was exhausted mentally and physically so he just collapsed. He slept for a long time next to the graves waking up in the middle of the night and staring upwards. "I have to be strong." He thought over and over thinking he would die otherwise. His thoughts slowly began to change as he got up, rage consuming his face as it displayed no other emotion.
"Benders....it's all their fault...they don't belong here...on this world. With us...none of it...they ruin everything!" All of the words of hatred towards them that his caravan had said seeped into him as he looked around for a possible weapon...he couldn't find one so he decided to take the shovel and break off the metal part using it to sharpen it smiling. Kaneki then slowly trudged to the nearest village which was easily thirty miles off. When he arrived he was exhausted and camped outside the village for a few hours relaxing at a tree. He quickly grew bored of sitting there and began to work out his body deciding that he couldn't be weak if he wanted to murder benders. He did push ups, pull ups, everything you could think of till his body screamed for no more. He collapsed unto the ground sleeping for easily seven hours awaking at night after the village had gone to bed...he snuck into the closest house and was attempting to assassinate the guy not realizing he was a martial arts teacher.
Needless to say Kaneki was injured severely though offered to be trained. So he did...for four years. His master then died. Kaneki no longer was mad at the world or benders...yet he was deep inside though it was sealed up. He refused to let it out and that had saved him many times. He traveled to Republic city deciding he wanted to go because his master had spoke of it many times. When he arrived he was amazed by the technology and wanted to become a trader like his family had been.
