Character Background

Basara first appeared on Samurai Shodown III as a yurei or also known as a ghost in the Japanese folklore. Basara is a young man living peacefully with his lover, Kagaribi. Until one day, the demonic swordsman Zankuro wreaked havoc on their entire village. His village has been clothed with the drastic death of his people. Unfortunately, one of those is his beloved, Kagaribi. 

But, the dark background of Basara gets even more perplexing as soon as we found out that he actually took his own lover’s life. Now, it’s for you to figure that out! 

In the trailer, there’s a very short clip where we can see that Kagaribi’s ghost still haunts Basara. Interesting?
