When the warlord invaded his village, unspeakable bloodshed cursed his people.  To protect the women and children, he had no choice but to yield his blade.  Flesh punctured and cut, he fought until his physical state had nothing left to give.  He died standing and his soul transcended to the highest realm.  Every second in his defense another life was saved.  The survivors went on to spread his eternal legacy, the legacy of the Twilight Samurai.
