The Way of the WarriorBook - 2008
"When Jimmu was ten years old, his father woke him in the middle of the night to explain that he had brought shame to the family. He then committed seppuku, a form of suicide. Jimmu is left in the care of his father's most trusted samurai swordsman, Nichiren, who explains that the charges that brought shame to his family were false. His father was set up by his enemy, Lord Ankan. Striken by the injustice of his father's death, Jimmu develops a deep hatred. He decides to train as a samurai warrior and vows to one day avenge his father's death by killing Lord Ankan."--dust cover.
