These highly trained and usually well-born swordsmen are sworn to defend the lives and honour of the noble houses they serve. Quartered on the estates of the Houses, they train fiercely in between excursions where they do their best to "accidentally" run into (and possibly stab) samurai from other houses.
While each Samurai will eventually become a member of the Hong, Fang, Tang, Sung or McSweeney families and thus have their home on one of the fabulous sprawling estates which are a demonstration of the wealth and opulence of Agatea and her citizens, all recruits will begin their training at the Garden of Steel Flowers. This elite training facility is located in the Sour-Toe-May School of Martial Arts, off Wung-Chi lane in the northern part of Bes Pelargic.
Samurai are not exempt from the general ban on weapons in Bes Pelargic.
