Musashi Akatsuki is a
legendary swordsman who once traveled the countryside, honing his skills and
challenging worthy opponents along the way. During one of his battles he was
killed by another swordsman. When Shinnosuke
Kagami begins his plan to open Hell's Gate and bring about a new world
order, he resurrects Musashi to further his plans and kill innocent people. To
both their chagrins, while on one of his travels, Musashi was defeated.
Honorable just like he was during his life, he bids farewell to his opponent,
before dissolving in a beam of light. He is loosely based on Miyamoto Musashi.
