Samurais - Humans

* Fictional character created by and for NUC Cards.

Bakaru, great warrior of his clan, of Ushi's house.

The most dangerous and cruel samurai of his clan, controlled only by his master, the sage Onii.

Bakaru is a true son of war, skilled in his art and skilled in the art of using other weapons.



There are samurai and, in rare cases, onna-bugeisha, the warrior woman who followed the bushido.

In the 8th century, began the formation of the social caste of the samurai, but it was only in the late 12th century, with the establishment of the Kamakura Period there was the seven-century period of political and social samurai domination over the Japanese people, which ended with the Restoration Meiji determining the fall of the third shogunate in the second half of the nineteenth century.

In the tenth century, the term "samurai" was made official, and it gained a number of new functions, such as military. At that time, any citizen could become a samurai by simply training the Kobudo (traditional Japanese martial art of samurai), maintaining a reputation and being skilled enough to be hired by a feudal lord. So it was until the Tokugawa shogunate, begun in 1603, when the samurai class became a caste (hereditary transmission of a lifestyle). Thus, the title of "samurai" began to be passed from father to son. Thus, with hereditary transmission, they began to be militarily trained from childhood, and formed a respected and hereditary caste.

The most famous samurai of all time was Miyamoto Musashi (1584-1645), a warrior who came from the countryside, participated in the battle of Sekigahara and began a long journey of perfection. He defeated the Yoshioka in Edo (present-day Tokyo) and won the battle with another great samurai, Sasaki Kojirō.

Samurai particularly prized military training. Through the martial arts, both his technique and his spirit were strengthened. More than hitting a target with his arrow or cutting something with his sword, a samurai always aimed at refining his spirit, with self-discipline and self-control, so that he is always prepared for the most adverse situations possible.


The Koryū (or Kobudo), as are known the fighting styles created by the samurai is still practiced today. It involves a wide range of different weapons and techniques, such as Kenjutsu (fighting with spades), Iaijutsu (sword-wrestling in combat), Naginatajutsu (fighting with halberd), Sōjutsu or Yarijutsu (spear art), Jojutsu and Bōjutsu ), similar to Taijutsu.


A typical samurai armor was composed of several important details, undergoing changes according to the historical period, the clan and the samurai class. Those used for horse battles could weigh up to forty kilos.

  • Suneate: Two vertical blades attached to the tibia by joints or chains;
  • Haidate: Protector of thighs, with the inferior part superimposed of sheets of metal or leather;
  • Yugate: Gloves made of leather;
  • Kotê: The sleeves that protected the forearms and wrists, could be made of diverse materials, like fabric, leather or metal blades;
  • Dô: Protector for the abdomen;
  • Kusazuri: A type of skirt made of metal strips attached to a leather belt and tied in the Dô, used to protect the hips and thighs;
  • Uwa-obi: Belt made of linen and cotton that lashed the Dô;
  • Sode: Shoulder protector made of metal blades;
  • Hoate: Mask that varied a lot from model, depending on the period;
  • Kabuto: Helmet, which also varied a lot of model, depending on the period. They symbolized the power and status of the samurai;
  • Horo: A cloak, made of silk used as an arrow dresser, also carried the design of the clan which the samurai participated in.
