Legend of the Five Rings: Suikoden
Originally famed for his large sword, he took up the Star Dragon Sword after Inu
Sanosuke belonged to a prominent brotherhood of Ronin until the Battousai changed his life forever. After years of hunting down the Battousai, he found him, but the man now known as Kenshin had changed. Sanosuke let go of his vengeance just days before Inu’s death. He found himself the wielder of the Star Dragon Sword.
The Star Dragon Sword taught Sanosuke of many things, including the terrible danger that Rokugan was in. They agreed to march to the Carpenter Wall together. It was only a few days after that reports of the Scorpion Clan Coup came his way. He was immediately disheartened. His death was purely the type of accident that came with the fate of the Star Dragon Sword.
