Muramasa was an expert swordsmith in Japan.


Muramasa was apprenticed to Masamune. He was believed to be able craft a sword just as fine as any his master made, but his dark personality reflected the nature of the weapon and was cursed. The designs could achieve sentience of their own and would drive their wielder to bloodthirsty deeds. The sword would lead them to murder and seppuku in spite of any glory that could be achieved in battle.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

Masamune was described as "dark-natured".[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

While Rising Sun's Muramasa is based on legend, it is generally considered the real Muramasa and Masamune lived in seperate time periods and as such, there was no possible apprenticeship.
