The Samurai of Tyrakawa are an elite band of warriors who give up their old lives to become part of an ancient order of warriors. They stick to their own Code of Honor and are often found among the courts of Lords as advisors or bodyguards.
In battle, katana was typically paired with the medium sword wakizashi. Both were worn by members of the Japanese warrior class. The two weapons together were called the daisho, and represented the social power and personal honor of the samurai.
