Samurai World Explorer
Shima Rintaro was born to a Samurai family in the
New Empire of Japan. Unlike most of his friends and
comrades who were content never to leave the Empire,
Shima always had a curiosity about the outside world.
Figuring that such knowledge and experience would
make Shima a better retainer, his Daimyo granted Shima
leave to explore the world on condition that after seven
years, or whenever Shima felt that he had learned (or experienced)
enough, Shima would return to take his place
in the Daimyo’s service. One of the Clan’s magicians
opened up a Rift which sent Shima to North America,
where he has been adventuring the past several years.
