You never appreciate what you have until it's gone. Until its TAKEN FROM YOU!
I grew up son of the most skilled martial artist that has ever lived. So skilled that his name was revered as almost holy.
My Father Kentaro study martial arts his whole life. He was away for long periods of time studying not kung fu or jujitsu but the form of martial arts. Some say it came to him or that the Lord God instilled it in him but he came up with the most lethal form of martial arts named gods palm. It was perfect perfectly crafted to be the weakness to every form of martial arts. My father was famous for it. It was only fitting that I become the next prodigy. My father wrote down all of its secrets before he died and entrusted it with me. I studied it as if it we holy texts from buddah. I mastered it perfected it but never wished to teach it. I used it as a leverage to keep peace for no one dared test their art against Kentaros gods palm.
To let you know this is my testament to vengeance not truth or justice for there is a difference between justice and vengeance. Vengeance is undying. It is a passion. AN OBSESSION to meet your goal. Justice is to make the make an example to society that the action will be met with a consequence fitting the crime. I do NOT wish such things on my enemies I wish DEATH! I wish unrelenting pain unquenchable thirst.
I know you wonder what such things could transpire to someone who sets out for good? Well allow me to continue with my story. I grew into a man, into the the police if you will to my country side. I policed it with "Justice" or what I thought was justice. In the world I live in you have the known world and the grey areas named "cursed land". in this "cursed land" there are many tales of demons, creatures, and beings of immense evil doing unspeakable things to villagers who live by. Now me being the man that I am I extent my hand. What a fool was I.
One thing I have to add was I met this beautiful angel of a woman named lelikyo Hanzo. I known her in the village for years we grew up together and she loved me for not my craft but as a person, and I loved her as well. We were wed in the spring and the following year birthed a child Hikaru. We loved her dearly. I didn't think a man such as I should be as blessed as I was. I thanked the Lord God everyday. Then two years later we birthed another girl her name was Ki. My sweet Ki was born mute, but never did it make me love her any less I loved them Equally and praised God again for her as well.
My blessed life took a turn for the worst when going to the northern village of shinto to offer my services against the creatures they said could rip a ox in half. I kissed my wife and daughters and left to help when I got there I saw no creatures. I stayed for 2 days time until "it" struck. It was fast had fangs and claws as sharp as blades. It lunged for a woman walking in her home but I grabbed it by its leg snapped it and struck it with mighty blow. The creature was knocked unconscious. I rode away with it tied on back of my wagon until it spoke. "You have made a grave mistake human". I responded back "No you have made the mistake by torturing these poor people" I took him off of the road and beheaded it and burned the body. How stupid of me!
The creature blood leaked the whole way and the other creatures were able to follow me. I came home kissed my wife and children and went to bed not knowing what waited for me in two weeks time. I left to offered my services to another village. I was gone no less than half a day. When I arrived at nights time the village was on fire! Villagers lay slain, dismembered all over. I rushed home to see my wife., My precious wife nailed to the side of our home with a note nailed into her chest saying "You shouldn't have mettled human". I instantly became frozen for I know what had transpired against me. I run into the house to see my two children hung. I cried louder than anyone has ever have cried before. I sit with my knees in the dirt wondering why would this happen to me. Why my family? WHY???????????
I took down my children and my wife and buried them then said a prayer for them. I was about to commit suicide because I could not bare the pain knowing my foolishness lead to the death of my family and I wasn't there to protect them. I saw a blinding white light come down on me. I heard a voice saying "Do not weep noble Hyruko, for it is I the Lord God. You live in a day and age of despair and troubles. If you wish to see your family then I will make it so." YES i cried I wish it. but the lord god says "why do you wish the same fate on others" I told him I don't I never would wish what happened to me on anyone. he said "You wish to leave knowing you have the skills to protect it from happening again. You are the greatest martial artist on earth. You can be the hero for which people can look up to, the hero for which the world needs" I told him I am too broken. he lifted my chin and said "If you wish for the strength I will give it to you, I will also give you a blade forged by your elders to vanquish such creatures, It is the sharpest blade known to man and it is true, for only you can wield it" I told him I just wanted to be with my family. He said "Fine I will make you a deal If you get your revenge and you aren't pacified then I will take you but if you do feel it then I will make sure you have everything you need to help heal the world." Honestly at that point feeling the blade in my hand I felt anger come over me. I felt VENGEANCE come over me. At that instant I knew what was right and I made and oath to God that I would send every demon or creature I came across to hell. Then lord god surprised me he said "I knew you would do what's right and I will make you a deal if you can kill 300,000 demons I will return your family back to the land of the living and bestow peace upon your life again." I wept and thanked god. When I left I felt a feeling that I knew I had done what was right.
I caught up with the demons that ransacked the village and I felt no fear what so ever nothing but vengeance. I picked up my blade as slaughtered them unmercifully. It felt great! I knew from that point on I would not rest until I was reunited with my family and until ultimate VENGEANCE was mine.
