SWORDSMAN by CHARLESRATTERAY SWORDSMAN by CHARLESRATTERAY
SWORDSMAN CONCEPT

The character himself was something i had been toying with but hadn't realized fully - a man seasoned in the arts of war - a swordsman by trade - beset by the guilt and dishonor of failure to protect his master from assassination is now unable to commit traditional suicide - but bound by a promise to shepard his master blood daughter in the ways of warrior way so that upon her coming of age she may rebuild her fathers kingdom.....eh something to that effect ...still shifting ..

That sounds like an epic story! I absolute like it I can easily picture the character walking towards some samurai's ready for battle Ninja assassin (1965 one) is this a project you are working on?
