The Legacy 
Name: Honda
Real name: Yoshiro Shimazu

Without the armor and spear, Yoshiro Shimazu is a comparatively normal seeming Japanese-american youth. fairly tall for an asian, he stands at 180 cm (5'9"), with a lean, muscular body and broad shoulders. He is obviously well trained, as can be seen from his wiry muscles and balanced gait.
Coming from a strict and traditional household, he is very polite and somewhat rigid, always being straitbacked and leaning towards the military definition of "at ease" when he actually relaxes. There is always a sense of readiness about him whatever he does.
His black hair is kept fairly short, and an easily recognizable facial feature is his dark brown eyes, and the thick, defined eyebrows that rest above them.
Again as part of his upbringing, he is very subdued in most situations, saying little when it is not necessary and keeping his face schooled in a neutral if a bit severe expression.

When he wields his spear and armor Yoshiro's whole being changes, as a remnant of the spirit of Tadakatsu Honda awakens in him. He grows at least ten inches in stature, and exudes an air of nobility and danger.
His normally even and unremarkable voice deepens, an echo of the ancient warrior's strong baritone carries with every word, lending a commanding tone   to all that he says.
The armor itself covers him almost completely, his face under the helmet likewise covered by a Men-Yoroi (Half-face mask), leaving only his eyes and forehead slightly uncovered.

Tonbokiri (Divine weapon)
- "Dragonfly cutter", one of the Three Great Spears, first wielded by Tadakatsu Honda in battle in the tumultuous Sengoku period of feudal Japan.
Said to be so sharp that a dragonfly that landed on it was immediately cut in half. The spear is indestructible, as far as the clan knows. Nothing has put a scratch on it up until now, and has never needed maintenance beyond cleaning. It is perfectly balanced, can cut through almost anything, and appears in the wielders hand when called.
As times changed and harming or outright killing your opponents became less heroic, the weapons properties changed slightly. While it still cuts as well as ever, the wielder can with a thought make the weapon unable to cut skin.
Thus leaving it able to cut through their armor, while leaving them unmaimed.

Armor of Tadakatsu (magic armor)
- The armor worn by Tadakatsu has over the course of his life come to hold his spirit along with Tonbokiri. Like the spear it comes when the wielder calls it, appearing on his body. It carries the commanding presence and larger-than life presence of it's original master, and bestows inhuman toughness and durability to the wielder. While the armor can be broken, it always appears on it's armor rack back in the clan hall when either dismissed by or torn of the current Honda. So far, it has never been destroyed completely, any damage it takes slowly repairing itself over a course of hours.

Spirit of Tadakatsu (Mythic might)
- During his life Tadakatsu Honda fought in more than a hundred battles, proving himself a mighty warrior almost without equal. The fact that he never sustained a significant injury in combat and was never beaten by another samurai earned him the moniker "the warrior who surpassed death itself". His spirit lives on in his weapons and to a lesser extent in his clan, and he readily bestows his might to those he finds worthy.
All members of the clan are to some extent strengthened after passing the judgement of Honda, as they are meant to support his chosen, But only the chosen wielder is granted the true superhuman strength and battle instincts of the ancient master. on the rare occasions that the spirit has shown itself, it has been in the form of a stag, similar to the antlers that adorn the helmet of his armor.

Legacy moves

Fight the good fight:
- When you pull your punches while directly engaging a threat, you can roll +Savior instead of +Danger. If you do, you cannot choose to impress, surprise, or frighten your foe.

Never give up, Never surrender:
- When you take a powerful blow from someone with far greater power than you, use this move instead of the basic move. Roll +Savior. On a hit, you stand strong and choose one. On a 7-9, mark a condition.

- you get an opportunity or opening against
your attacker
- you rally from the hit, and it inspires the
team; add 1 Team to the pool
- you keep your attacker’s attention

On a miss, you go down hard but leave your
opponent off balance and vulnerable.

Given to: All

Your Legacy is an important part of Halcyon City.
Name the different members of your legacy:

- Kotaro Mori (Former wielder) is still active and prominent in the city. While he no longer wields the armor and spear themselves, he still works as a hero, wearing samurai themed modern armor and a variety of weaponry.
With his skill, experience and the fraction of Honda's strength he still possesses, he is still very much a worthy and effective hero. His current moniker is Sensei, as he also still teaches Yoshiro.

- Hideyoshi Watanabe (Former wielder) is retired and quite judgmental. He believes that it was too early for the armor and spear to be passed from Kotaro to Yoshiro, but does not argue openly against the spirit's decision.
He is currently one among three elders who lead the clan in day-to-day business and training. Old-fashioned and stuck in his ways, he is exceedingly harsh, he is more samurai than hero. In fact, he thinks most heroes are prissy idealists, with no stomach to do what is necessary.

- Muramasa is the greatest opponent the Legacy has ever faced... and is still at large. A cursed blade created by the famed swordsmith of the same name, Muramasa is a sentient weapon with a penchant for bloody massacre.
It entices it's potential wielders with promises of power, only to take over their minds. While it does bestow the promised power, being indestructible, able to cut almost anything and vastly strenghtening the wielder's body, it always inevitably cuts a swathe of bloodshed through anyone in it's way as it searches for ever more worthy foes to kill.
Despite it's simple goals, however, the blade is by no means stupid. It is cunning, charismatic and very, very patient when needed.
