MATSUDA IS A NEWLY-CREATED WARRIOR IDORU. HE BEGAN EXISTENCE WITH A KATANA IMBUED WITH THE POTENT KILL PERMISSION, AND HAS NOT BEEN SHY ABOUT USING IT. EARLY IN HIS LIFE, HE SOUGHT OUT "SERI", THE OWNER OF A CASTLE OVERLOOKING BRITENESS LANDING AND SLEW HER, SENDING HER TO THE UNDERWORLD. MATSUDA HAS CLAIMED THE CASTLE AS HIS HOME, ALTHOUGH HE HAS BEEN UNABLE TO CLAIM FULL OWNERSHIP OF IT. SERI HAS NOT YET ESCAPED THE UNDERWORLD, BUT MATSUDA'S ACTIONS HAVE MADE ENEMIES OF SERI'S FRIENDS.

TO DEFEND HIS "HOME", MATSUDA CREATED A GUARDIAN COMPANION, A SERVANT WHO PRESENTS AS A GUARDIAN DRAGON STATUE. THIS SERVANT CAN BREATHE FIRE, BANISHING INVADERS. MATSUDA'S OTHER SERVANT APPEARS TO BE AN ELDERLY OLD MAN.

WHILE MATSUDA'S BRASH ATTACK ON SERI WON HIM SOME ADMIRATION (GIVING HIM A MOTE COUNT OF TWO), HE FEELS THREATENED BY SERI'S FRIENDS (AND HER IMPENDING RETURN FROM THE UNDERWORLD). LEAVING THE CASTLE IN THE CARE OF HIS DRAGON SERVANT, HE HAS GONE OUT TO SEEK FAME OR ALLIES...
