FOR the Samurai Duelers League. I dont know what else is there to fill in, i might edit this later. Info- :iconroninsultramix:

NEW EDITED

Character sheet- [link]

Intro Comic (still in progress)- [link]


Name: IRON SAMURAI(it has become is name,he is not allowed to say his old name)
Age: Unknown
Height: 177 cm
Hobby: Smoking and drinking, does not take forbidden drugs, grow fresh vegetables and fruits,making kites and carving wooden statues.

Story: Once a son of a disgraceful and treacherous evil clan. Thou he was born into such family, he was one of the youngest sons but he did not want to associate himself with his family doings. His older brothers and relatives fought among themselves and also murdered each other, some who arent sure who their mother was. He withdraw himself from all of this and observe his families crimes from a distance which kept him from the eyes of complications and danger.

Later,his clan was exterminated by a Noble Lord named Kageyoshi Muramasa under the order of the Imperial Castle, but he was the only one spared, brought to serve this lord to cleanse his family name, he was forced to undertook a harsh samurai training. The training had severe body transformation.

He had his body permanently armored to his body, and had some hot semi molten nails and screwed to his body avoiding his vitals and most getting stuck into his bones causing him great pain and suffering. Their aim was to create a human sword that is fully grown into and also it was kind of a punishment to him. Thou it was meant to be an experiment, his rate of survival was expected to be very little, if he was to survive, his body would grow to adapt into the armor with special samurai trainings. Only with constant body trainings, strengthening,meditation and medication could he be able to adapt successfully into the armor. Miraculously he survived probably due to his strong will.

Years past by as he serve under his great lord with no questions, he continuously train in all forms of pure samurai katana styles for almost every day and night because he had no other ways to live. Soon he had become a very renown swords man experienced from a thousand battles and a hundreds of great warriors. Until the day his lord dies from an unknown cause,the lord then announced that his family name was cleaned and the Iron Samurai wonders alone without a master.

Weapons: Iron Samurai carries 3 katanas with him ,each sword has different in length and shape which allows him to adapt quickly to each battle. His favourite Katana which is called Bakegami,the one he is holding above the picture is a very strong and long,well balance samurai blade. The other shorted katana on his left waist is Karma, its an ordinary blade whom sometimes he dispose of in battle by throwing it towards his opponent, sometimes he combines it with Bakegami to become Nitoryu style fighting. The one in his right waist is Orochi which he seldom uses, its used only as a last resort, this is because when Orochi was being forged in the iron smith, it was still in hot fiery molten metal, and it was then sheathed to preserve is the heat in the casing.

Ability: Although he carries quite a heavy armor on his body, he is no where near slow, his swordmanship is lightning and ultra refined because this is the only thing he trains all his life. His reflexes are an utmost remarkable and his sharpness and focus is so narrow that he can is able to cut a strand of hair in half.

He has 14 style of sword stances for almost any occasions, his sprinting speed is almost as quick as any ordinary samurai except for his poor breaking speed. Even with his armor, he can leap on his opponent with a degree of height. His strength is also a force to be reckoned. He is also skilled without a sword,his kicks and punches often become his alternative ways to win. Hi is completely made for melee fighting only, he excels 360 degrees of sword fighting.

His armor helps him slide and deflect through enemy attacks, it isnt made to absorb strong impacts or he would suffer concussions. This is why he never stay still and constantly moves around when dealing with large weapons or guns.

Personality: Seemingly kind and good hearted,however everything he touched seem to become endangered, his enemies follow him no end to get their revenge and even after defeating them, one after the other keep to haunt him. His permanent armor on his body made the people around him feel awkward, and he shy away from a towns or villagers, often he travels in a cloak to avoid people seeing him.

He will not risk a battle surrounded by innocent people, and people can easily make him surrender by using innocent people to trick him. However its in his nature to never give up his sword for anything.

In a fight he will fight according to the fighters skill, even if he is stronger, he rather lose a fight fair and square. He will never harm women or children, he believes a sword which hurts women and children cannot hut him. If he is put in a position, he will quickly surrender and walk away. He cannot face himself if he ever hurt a person weaker than him.

Present life: Currently living in an abandoned temple alone and training his sword. Often people come to ask him aid from bandits. Also hoping to remove his armor one day, bu he can only hope.

Other facts: His armorfication method of his body was said to be invented by a European scholar who was banished from his land because he was accused by the Church of heresy and black magic. He somehow managed to travel to japan for unknown reasons and ended up with Lord Kageyoshi Muramasa. However the European scholar had no arms, and only once he had participated in instructing the armorfication of the Iron Samurai. Later he mysteriously disappeared again.

I think the art is great, and the concept is interesting. However I feel that is is burdened by cliche plot development and lame dialogue. If you give more thought to the story instead of just having him come out as soon as possible than I think you could be on to something.
