A lone man in a black cloak and a black Kasa hat walks the vast desert that seems to be endless. As he walks, a strange voice speaks to him from his sword. "Do you need our help this time?" remarked the disembodied voice." No, it's just a simple eradication mission" replied Kiyoshi as he looked down at the bandit camp from above a Sandhill. As Kiyoshi walks down the Sandhill a bandit scout spots him from a tower, Kiyoshi takes out a bag of gold coins from his pockets and holds it up in the air in the direction of the scout as he walks into the bandit camp. As Kiyoshi enters the bandit camp everyone in the camp stops what they were doing and all eyes were on Kiyoshi from the youngest child to the elders of the camp watched Kiyoshi with fierce and deadly intense eyes, with everyone at least having one hand on or close by a weapon with most of them living in beat-up tents and old rustic sheds with only structure being proper housing was old wooden homes, as Kiyoshi walked by everyone he headed to towards the largest tent in the middle of the camp which had two large lion dragon hybrid statues placed in front the tent." This must be it" remarked Kiyoshi as he entered the tent. As Kiyoshi enters the tent he meets a group of at least fifty men all eating, and drinking among them at the back of the tent sits one on a wooden throne, bareback in red short pants with small tears and beer stains. His body was covered with bandit tattoos and symbols. His skin was a dark charcoal tone, his eyes were a fiery red, and his hair a reddish-black styled in a Mohawk. The men take notice of Kiyoshi's presence inside the tent as he walks closer to them they pay him no mind as they continued to enjoy themselves on beer, food, and women. Kiyoshi walks up to the nearest table and the men are still wary of his presence but continue to pay him no mind as their current activities are more interesting than a lone stranger in their tent which they can easily get rid of if needed. Kiyoshi dips into his pocket and pulls out a bag of gold coins. The men pause for a brief second to look at the gold coins and immediately go back to enjoying themselves. Kiyoshi proceeds to pull out several more bags of gold coins and place them each on the table. With each bag of gold coins placed on the table, the men's attention was drawn more and more to the lone stranger with seemingly deep pockets. With fifteen bags of gold coins on the table, the men have long forgotten their vices and their attention is solely forced on Kiyoshi. Loud laughter is heard throughout the large tent which came from the man sitting on the wooden throne now with a pair of women sitting on his lap." Now that's how you make a fucking introduction" replied the man with a ghoulish grin that makes even devil quake with fear. The man makes a hand sign and the women quickly flee the tent. The man on the throne signals to one of the men, a man that looks like the crossbreed between a man and a sewage rat. Skinny, dirty with one eye bigger than the next and a nervous shake and nine strains of hair on his otherwise bald head." Sketch brings me one of those coins" replied the man on the throne. Sketch slowly walks to the table where Kiyoshi is, as he walks up to Kiyoshi, he can see the burns and cuts marks on Sketch's arms, a slight bend in his back, and a slave brand on his neck that has healed poorly. His fingernails are a rotting black with his fingers and hands wrinkled and looked like they age fifty years ahead of his body which says something. As sketch is face to face with Kiyoshi all that comes to mind Kiyoshi is that his man looks like a dying toucan bird with his large nose. Sketch drips his hands into a bag of gold coins as he pulls out a coin his hands tremble rapidly as if to say the coin is taking all his strength to hold. Sketch walks back shaking rapidly as he holds the coin in both of his hands as he walks to where the man on the throne is. Sketch reaches in front of the throne and drops to his knees bowing with his two hands up to the sky as he presented the coin to the man on the throne. As the man on the wooden throne takes the coin from Sketch, Sketch remarks" It it it's a go-go gold coin form Zion my lord a gold coin of Zion". The man on the throne took the coin and brought it up to his right eye. He played with the coin in between his fingers for a brief while then he bit the coin then looked back at the coin and began laughing. While laughing the man remark" I'll keep this as a consultation fee". Then the man places the coin into his pants pockets ." So what can we do for you?" The man on the throne said with a ghoulish grin. "Are you the leader of this bandit camp?" replied Kiyoshi.
The man on the throne laughed and replied" Where are my manners? My name is Maxwell and yes I rule this entire camp of good boys" as he continues to smile devilishly." So how can I and my men help you", It must be a serious mission for you to take the chance to come here alone". It's a raid, no you need just to take out someone or maybe it's an escort mission, so what will be stranger" stated Maxwell. All the men looked at Kiyoshi curiously waiting for him to reply. Kiyoshi raised his head to look at Maxwell and replied "Do you know the town of Pwaters?" Maxwell's face became serious for a brief moment but a ghoulish grin appeared almost instantly as he replied" Yes a bit, I think we visited that place once or twice mainly to pick up supplies. Why do you ask?"." Do you raid and attack the town?" replied Kiyoshi. "And what if we do?" Replied Maxwell." I am paying you guys to leave the town and people of Pwaters alone and find a new target" stated Kiyoshi. Maxwell watched Kiyoshi with an intense facial expression whilst the other men kept silent waiting for Maxwell's response. Maxwell sat quietly for a moment and then began bursting out laughing with his men immediately bursting out in laughter with him. "You expect us to stop raiding them for a shitty fifteen bags of gold" stated Maxwell as he and his men laughed at Kiyoshi's request." So let me guess they sent you to kill us what a fucking joke, well let's get this party started" remarked Maxwell. "Don't feel I didn't notice the sword tucked away on the left side of your cloak I just never believe any one person was fucking stupid enough to attack us" laughed Maxwell. "We don't have to do this just take the gold and leave the town alone "replied Kiyoshi almost like he was begging Maxwell and his men not to do this." We are way past making deals now my friend pull out your sword and let's go," remarked Maxwell with his devilish smile still on his face, as his men shouted and cheered viciously for Kiyoshi death as they took his request and presence as a disrespect." Fine have it your way." Replied Kiyoshi as he open ups his cloak slightly to draw his sword which for a brief moment relieved the hilt of his sword just enough for Maxwell to notice the weird symbols and signs on the handle of the sword." It can't be, "Maxwell thought to himself. When Kiyoshi drew his sword Maxwell opened his mouth in shock. "It is hahaha I can't believe it." A sword with demonic and ancient symbols whose blade looks like blood always runs down it". The sword that is said to contain the power of hell's army, the sword of the legion" proclaimed Maxwell with surprising excitement." Then you must be Kiyoshi Kataigure the blood samurai," remarked Maxwell with his ghoulish grin becoming bigger and bigger as Kiyoshi stood silent and his men sat shook mumbling to themselves "the blood samurai, I thought it was just an old story, he's real can't be'' the men sat scared and unsure of themselves but Maxwell was overjoyed." This is perfect, the blood samurai hand-delivered to me" laughed Maxwell. "But master why are you so happy he's a monster" remarked Sketch. Maxwell grab Sketch by this t-shirt and replied" You fools don't understand we are set for life the peacemakers will pay millions or even billions of gold coins for him dead or alive, we will never have to raid again" remarked Maxwell in excitement as he then pushes Sketch to the ground shouting and screaming hysterically " we going to be rich rich rich". As Maxwell repeated this phrase, the fear in the men grew less and less and turned into joy as they began to shout'' rich rich rich". Even Sketch began to join in the chant." Now my men get him and let's fulfill my dreams" commanded Maxwell. The men including Sketch drew weapons from under the tables and behind potted plants and rushed Kiyoshi with dreams of the good life filling their heads with hope and confidence. Maxwell sat back on his wooden throne relaxing and thinking to himself" This was too easy". But before he could daydream about his soon-to-be riches, Kiyoshi appeared in front of him with his blade armed and aiming at Maxwell's neck. Maxwell looked shocked and was frozen for a brief moment but he quickly snapped out of it and reached behind his throne and pulled out an ax to block Kiyoshi's attack.
