This pin captures the aura of a samurai really well for me. In my opinion it captures patience and pride just through the use of clothing and stance alone. Clothing and stance are something I could use to conjure the same effect in my game.
*this lamellar armor configuration and dou reminds me of Surrashumaru, Yuki's faithful family-bound Inugami --dog servant-- and unseen protector since birth*
