Well, here is my basic summary and character descriptions. Fell free to comment. XIII Samurai: Recreate Summary XIII Samurai: Recreate is set in the year 2285 and disease has overrun the globe, the main character Kiyoshi is infected and cryogenically frozen for a future cure. Weeks after his freezing World War V begins and atomic bombs, missiles are being launched and all citizens are resorting to anarchy. 3 years after the beginning of WWV all races are on the brink of extinction, it is at this time when the ancient being of destruction is awakened, the dragon Kiki. He destroys the universe with one attack and at the precise moment of annihilation time stops and rewinds to the very beginning, taking Kiyoshi with it. Kiyoshi awakens 20 million years after dinosaurs and 20 thousand years after dragons in his cryogenics chamber; this is when he meets Kumiko, an elven princess who adapts the wind. She takes Kiyoshi to the inn where she is staying and he meets Sakura, an atlantian ninja who adapts the water and Ryuu, a human samurai who adapts the flames. After meeting these three characters they set off to Asuka’s house, which is who they are working for. With her druid magic she reveals that Kiyoshi is the reincarnation of the era and the benevolence, the two deities destined to destroy Akuma, the king of undeath and Kiki, the planetary destructor. Kiyoshi sports a birthmark in the shape of the ying yang, the line between light and dark being era, the light being benevolence and the dark being malevolence. It is then decided that Kiyoshi joins the Kitsune Mercenaries to bring peace and prosperity to Therah. Hours after leaving Asuka they are attacked by a gaeleg and Kiyoshi is struck down, this is when they meet Kazuki, a neciant. After his mother’s death he joins them on his quest to fulfil his mother’s dream, infuriated, his father cuts him down the face as a sign never to return to the neciants. As they continue with their journey they come across other characters that all join for different reasons. Akane, an amatsu-kami queen; she joins to repay her debt to Kiyoshi. Daichi, a tauronim who adapts the earth; he joins to protect the youth. Hiroshi, an elven daemon slayer; he joins to save his twin sister from Takahiro. Yukiko, a human assassin; she joins for the fortune they hold. Akemi, an atlantian healer; she joins to watch over Sakura. Akira, an atlantian sage; he joins to find and kill the one responsible for his home’s destruction. Chiyoko, a tauronim berserker martial artist; she joins so that she can encounter foes more powerful than herself. Yasu, an elven bounty hunter; she joins to rescue Emi from Takahiro. All up there are 3 humans, 3 elves, 3 atlantians, 2 tauronim, 1 neciant and 1 amatsu-kami in the Kitsune Mercenaries. Before Akuma and Kiyoshi fight, Akuma reveals that he is in fact Kiyoshi’s ancestor, Takahiro Akimoto. Kiyoshi must then make the ultimate decision, either kill Takahiro and risk self-sacrifice, or let him live and continue to bring chaos and destruction to Therah.
