"This guy would probably get along well with Shin. All he ever talks about is swords."
"He used to be work for anyone who could pay him, but he got tired of that life...."
"You should see that guy's eyes when he's near the Star Dragon Sword. He's not normal I tell you, I tell ya. It's almost like he worships it."
- Strike with your mind
To strike truly with your sword, you must strike truly with your mind. ~Genshu
"They say his sword is so swift that the naked eye can't see it. He's come a long way to be here with us, It's Lord Genshu!!!"
- Genshu's design is based around popular Ronin archetypes found in Japanese Media. His signature rune, the Swallow Rune, is based off the famous "Swallow Cut" move of Kojiro Sasaki, and his design and past as a reformed assassin who mistakenly murdered a loved one is reminiscent of Nobuhiro Watsuki's Kenshin Himura from the manga Rurouni Kenshin.
