Heishiro Mitsurugi Age: 22 Born: Jun.8 Height: 168 cm (5'7") Weight: 59 kg (130 lb) Blood Type: AB Family: All deceased. (Natural causes) Weapon: Korfuji Style: Mitsurugi This young Samurai known as "The Guardian in this age of civil war." He is also called "The Great Swordsman." Although he is feared for his fierce fighting, he was born a farmer's son in Bizen. The strong young boy enjoyed farming, however after many years of seeing his beloved farm ravaged by war, he became angered and discouraged. "It's better to raid than to be raided." He said. In the winter of his 14th year, He threw down the hoe and took up the sword. Studying swordsmanship under a powerful clan-lord, he was eventually hired as a "mercenary for the advent of war." It was then when he took the name "Mitsurugi." His original fighting style and tremendously powerful attacks during battle made him quite feared. "He has been known to mow through foes as if they were like a field of wheat." Some say. He has a spectacular battle- field record with several commendations to the rank of officer. Having rejected his military commissions, Mitsurugi's only desire is that of a worthy adversary. Mitsurugi eventually leaves the Urakami Clan, much to their regret, to pursue a career as a freelance mercenary. He fights in every war in the land, thus earning his nickname "The Guardian in an age of civil war." It is during this time that he hears of a new weapon "Tanegashima" - a matchlock rifle. "What is this? A firearm? It cannot be so powerful. It looks like a pipe!" Mitsurugi stared in disbelief. However, even the mighty Takeda cavalry was wiped out by this weapon. For Mitsurugi, who has fought with a single sword, this is an urgent matter. "If this weapon is allowed in the world, wars will not be won by the strong and I will lose my job as a mercenary!" "I must find a weapon stronger than that rifle!" A rumor about the legendary sword "SoulEdge" reaches his ears. "That's it. This weapon can overpower the fire arm." Without a second thought, Mitsurugi starts his search to find the blade. "Somewhere in the world, this "SoulEdge" exists!"
