Miyamoto Musashi or Shinmen Takezo (his real name), only at a very young age, embarked on a journey to become the strongest samurai only after being exiled from his own village. Musashi is the son of a samurai family, who's father is one of the most renown samurai across the nation. One of the foremost reasons that drives Musashi, to excel in sword-fighting, is his desire to overcome his father for all the harsh treatment given during his childhood and Musashi's incapability to rebel.
Musashi is unique in terms of his sword skill for the unfamiliar movements and lack of style he uses. This is due to the fact that he spent most of his time in the forest having been labeled as a demon child by his village for his demeaning and wicked nature. Frankly, the forest is his home and where his master resides.
