The Swordless Swordsman is a nameless hermit known for being a swordsman without a sword.
The Swordless Swordsman was once a knight in the Old Empire. He was the lowest-ranking member of the five Blades of the Royal Guard, a task force that directly served the King and Queen of the Old Empire. The leader of the Blades of the Royal Guard was the Blade of the Sacred Forest, who the Swordless Swordsman looked up to as his mentor. At the time of joining the Blades of the Royal Guard, the Swordless Swordsman was quite young, and he wielded two swords at a time. He was given the title Blade of the Silver Moon, casting his real name aside as is customary of the Blades of the Royal Guard.
The Blade of the Silver Moon looked up to the Blade of the Sacred Forest, and had a romantic interest in his partner, the Blade of the Golden Sun. He was young, rash, and prone to hasty decisions. He was constantly looking to prove himself, and was quick to start fights in order to do so. He had a rivalry with the Blade of the Devil's Tail, who he challenged countless times in order to assert himself, but was defeated easily every time.
But one day, the Blade of the Silver Moon stumbled upon a secret meeting held in the palace garden. The Chancellor was going to state an uprising, killing the King an Queen and usurping the throne. The Blade of the Silver Moon ran to tell his comrades, but they did not believe him. The Blade of the Devil's Tail assured everyone that the Blade of the Silver Moon was young and prone to hasty decisions. He probably just misheard something. They all trusted the Blade of the Devil's Tail. The Blade of the Silver Moon grew distant because of this.
In the coming months, the Blade of the Silver Moon shied away from his comrades. They did not believe him. He constantly lived with a sense of an upcoming danger. He could feel the dark clouds gathering on the horizon. But he had no idea what was to come, nor how he could stop it.
On the day of the Millennial Fare, a celebration to mark the coming of the Red Star, which only happened once every thousand years, disaster struck. An army invaded the Old Empire capital, slaughtering anyone they saw, but they soldier or civilian. The Blade of the Silver Moon rushed to the courtyard of the palace to find his comrades, and arrived just in time to see the Blade of the Devil's Tail and the Blade of the Angel's Wing killed the Blade of the Golden Sun. The Blade of the Silver Moon could only stand in horror as his partner was brutally murdered. His two former comrades set their sights on him next, and the Blade of the Silver Moon realized too late that he had left his swords in his room. Before the battle began, his two former comrades explained that the Chancellor had come to them and described his vision of a civilization far greater than the Old Empire. He planned to use an ancient weapon to destroy the capital and rebuild it anew in his image. A New Republic to replace the Old Empire!
Before the Blade of the Devil's Tail landed a fatal blow, he was blocked by the Blade of the Sacred Forest. The Blade of the Sacred Forest ordered the Blade of the Silver Moon to find the weapon and destroy it while he held off his two former comrades. He tossed the Blade of the Silver Moon his swords, sending him on his way.
The Blade of the Silver Moon came to the chamber where the ancient weapon was kept, the chamber of the Draw Dial. The Chancellor was there, and explained that the enigmatic Draw Dial was not useless as was assumed. It was actually a very powerful weapon. He activated the Dial just as the Blade of the Silver Moon plunged his swords into his back. A great rumbling shook the land, and the Blade of the Silver Moon looked up to see the Red Star in the sky getting bigger. No... it wasn't getting bigger... it was getting closer! The Chancellor, still clinging to life, realized his mistake. The Draw Dial was not a weapon to destroy the capital. And the Red Star that shown in the sky once every thousand years was not a star. It was a meteor that became visible every thousand years. And the Draw Dial was pulled it to the Earth. And the impact would surely destroy the entire Old Empire, not just the Capital.
The Blade of the Silver Moon rushed back down to the courtyard to find the Blade of the Angel's Wing and the Blade of the Devil's Tail both dead. But the Blade of the Sacred Forest was fatally injured. The Blade of the Silver Moon sat by his mentor's side to speak with him. The Blade of the Sacred Forest explained that he was a fool for trusting his treacherous comrade over his trusted student. The Blade of the Silver Moon cried that there had to be a way to stop the destruction of the Old Empire. The Blade of the Sacred Forest told him that the land's destruction was now unavoidable, but the Blade of the Silver Moon could let the Old Empire live on through him. The Blade of the Silver Moon questioned what his mentor was speaking of, and the Blade of the Sacred Forest produced golden Dial inlaid with jewels. He placed it on his student's palm and pressed the Apex. The Blade of the Silver Moon was surrounded by a golden glow, and began floating in the air. He reached down for his mentor, but he just smiled up at him. At the last moment, the Blade of the Silver Moon's screams were silenced by the titanous impact of the Red Star.
Not what one would expect. Long and unruly hair, a thick beard, bloodshot eyes from drinking, unsightly body hair. Straw sandals, straw raincoat, straw basket hat. Black yamabushi trousers, feet wraps, hand wraps. Flask tied to his waist. Sizeable height, sizeable girth. He looks quite like the definition of an old drunkard. But this appearance hides his true skill in combat as the Swordless Swordsman
His personality is also not what one would expect. He is lazy, irresponsible, often drunk, and seems to not be in the best of mental health. But once again, this behavior hides his true skill.
