-=Radio Static Buzzes in the Air On Electric Wings=-

Good evening, this is WPL owned and operated by the National Broadcasting Company in the city of Chicago. Located in historic downtown Chicago WPL operates on a frequency of 1460 kilocycles by authority of the Federal Communications division. 6:00, with J as your thoughtful host. This broadcast is brought you by Hoover Vacuums. The housework is never done, but you'll be a few steps closer with the Hoover Vacuum. This swell machine, once plugged into a standard outlet, literally transports dust and dirt from the floor right into a handy bag! It's almost like magic! It beats- as it sweeps- as it cleans! Guaranteed!

And now, to your regularly scheduled broadcast!

-=The sound of a crashing gong is heard=-


Ladies and gentlemen, prepare yourselves to revisit the experience of a lifetime. For others, we should prepare you for a marvelous tale from the East. A tale of mystery, family, and sacrifice of a lone, wandering Oriental from the shrouded lands of Japan.

-=A high pitched whistle pierces the air, followed by a steady drum=-


Allow me to be your guide, and soon you too can join your peers and neighbors in the journey of a lifetime... but first, introductions!

The story of Maeda Shichiroji begins as the young man and his young nation begin to suffer growing pains.

The story began with the youngest brother, Isamu, reflecting the growing shifts in Japanese society. His sister, a miko savant, in the footsteps of her mother, was sent to the shrine of Futsu-Nushi-No-Kami. It was during this visit that, unfortunately, the horrific Kanto Earthquake nearly destroyed the shrine as well as Yokohama.

At this time the sacred blade of Futsu-Nushi-No-Kami vanishes during the chaos.

Having lost both his siblings, now his mother had, herself, fallen gravely ill. The small family farm had become a small business, and with what funds he could cobble together, Katsushiro sent his son to find the nurse, Mary Ann Zwitt. Though initially thinking she was an esteemed doctor, she's found to not only be capable but knowledgeable of a doctor that could be found in America.

Doing the unthinkable, Katsushiro asks his blood-brother, wife, and oldest son to go to Chicago, Illinois in order to have her illness treated. Upon arriving in Chicago, the new phase of Shichiroji's life begins...

In Chicago Shichiroji finds himself employed by none other than Gary Moore, months before his demise.
