Matsu Saika - Loyal Son
"A late born son has nothing but his deeds to carry his name to greatness."
Sometimes, no matter how hard you try or how good you get, it'll never matter unless it meets the proper standards. Rarely are those standards ever your own.
Matsu Gouryu is the second son of Matsu Abe and Kitsu Yoroi, younger brother to Matsu Akito. Both parents as well as his brother were involved in the War against the Destroyers and were granted the good fortune to not only save the empire, they were also given the chance to tell their tales.
Gouryu, born a child of peacetime, did not have the luck to become a great hero like the rest of his family did. In fact, the only thing he ever could claim to be good at was never meeting his fathers standards. A passable student of the sword with only his natural strength being any indicator of potential and this infuriates his father to no end. No son of his should just be "passable". That is completely unacceptable.
Gouryu continues to try. He might not ever be worthy of his fathers love, but he won't ever stop trying.
