 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

commissions, Mitsurugi's only

 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

 "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

"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"

ago, he disappeared while
searching for "SoulEdge"
for Vercci, the Italian
weapons merchant.

 Defeat the enemy!

 Even the fearsome pirate was
not able to defeat Mitsurugi.
He thought his long journey
had finally ended here.

 Once he held the swords, he
knew something was not right,

 "These are indeed powerful
swords, but they are evil."

 Long seconds passed...

Then he cast "SoulEdge" away
without further hesitation.
Turning himself from the evil
swords, he sighed in

 "This is not what I wanted.
 He realized that "SoulEdge"
was pure evil, not the
weapons of legend.

 "I would refuse them even if
given to me!"

The end of the civil war...

 As the smoke of gunpowder
cleared over the battlefield,
Mitsurugi stood alone with
fresh determination.
