Introducing… Yiroaki Hura, Peerless Swordsman
As Marcus and his party members journey through Azuregard, they will find themselves in increasingly dangerous situations. All sorts of creatures, from wolves to kraken to orcs, shadow or threaten their every move. They will need a steady sword hand at their side if they are to overcome the obstacles that lie in their path.
Today, we’d like to present the steadiest sword hand in all of Azuregard who will support Marcus in his cause. Hailing from the island of Akitsu, Yiroaki Hura, the Peerless Swordsman, has gone far and wide in search of adventure. He is often accompanied by a talking dog, a talking monkey, a talking pheasant, and a talking sword named Jim (his companions freak out a lot of people). His accomplishments are many and include ridding Megijima Island of the Evil Oni stronghold that had been terrorizing nearby coastal villages, recovering the platinum fleece of Colchis, and defeating the previous Peerless Swordsman, Lu Bu, to become the current Peerless Swordsman.
Yiroaki Hura is jovial and prone to ramble with his tales of adventure. But he also has a serious side as he’s focused in his pursuit of restoring Akitsu martial prowess to its rightful #1 spot on Azuregard. He can currently be found in Cordo where he’s hard at work finding the location of the warrior Alexander the Greatest to challenge him to a duel. Winning the duel would allow Yiroaki Hura to claim the title of the Greatest. How he’ll fit all those titles together in a way that makes any sense is anyone’s guess.
