(浪人) rōnin. During the Japanese feudal period (1185 - 1868), when the master of a samurai dies, he is considered a rōnin. A samurai without a master. Translated to mean "wave man or wandering man". It is tradition for a samurai to commit suicide at the loss of a sensei, but who follows rules, really? Now on his lonesome, his only inheritance is shame, disgrace and a warrior's determination for revenge.
