The trail leads to the American west.
The heirloom must be retrieved.
Honor must be reclaimed.
Before both are forever lost...
Born in the year of the Fire Dragon, August 1844, Kobayashi Akira is the son of a samurai. At the tender age of 2, Kobayashi began his training in the ways of the samurai. By the time he was 13, he had already made his first kill on the battlefield.
By the age of 17, he was given province over a large and important rice production village. Having defended it from bandits intent upon the theft of rice stores, it was through these actions that he was formally invited to the Imperial Court.
Since that time, the Emperor has sent Kobayashi to America, and presently he finds himself in the Territory of Arizona, seeking the return of an important family heirloom.
