SDL - IRON SAMURAI by Frost7 SDL - IRON SAMURAI by Frost7
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.

The Iron Samurai has a very interesting character design. At first glance, one could mistaken him for a purely evil and cold-hearted warrior. But when one looks deeper, one can see otherwise.

I like his background story. It is something one can take pity on such a monstrous fusion of man and metal.

Another thing I like about him is his ability to generate a sort of fear factor. He seems to have the ability to intimidate his opponents, even by his looks alone. I don't know about the others, but with his great size, glowing eyes, tough armor and an even tougher conviction of honor, I wouldn't want to mess with this warrior. :D

thanks a lot, since its an old character i worked a lot on, when i found out about SDL,i just hopefully decided to put him in the league. i was surprised how he got accepted thou,i had to do a lot of explaining and convincing.

He looks like a great character, and under your style, he looks even greater. I've seen him in your comics, and I can say, the concept and style is something that can attract my attention.

I believe he would get accepted. He is toned well to be a ferocious fighter, but not invincible. He follows the trend of the time period he is in, and he looks like a blend of a knight and a samurai.

I wish good luck with your character, his story, and his duels (especially the one with Dalisay, I wish you good luck with that). :D

yea, he is being accepted into a video game, i had some of his armor modified for its sake with my latest deviation, also a lot of work being done on him too. His story is still just shallow on the surface,to tell you the truth he has a lot of relationship with a lot of characters and a lot of plots to fill, i havent started on the real thing really,all the images i made so far havent fill the gap to his actuall story.

That is a great achievement, and one I could envy. I merely dream to get some of my characters in a video game.

Hmmmm...that is a lot of expectations from such a humble character. The story seems good so far, and it might be nice not to reveal the character's origins in one full shot. To gradually leave bread crumbs for the viewers in the form of clues to the character's relationships and origins may entice them until the end of the trail.

But of course, that is what I may do. I have not seen his whole journey, so I have no right to say how you should do it. It is your story, so you're in charge. You could just forget what I just said, I just like writing lengthy comments, 'tis all. :D
