These warriors far surpassed the High knights of the five kingdoms. Some of these warriors fought for different reasons such as ambition,desire, vengeance and so on.

However, a legend is about to be born, one that shall surpass the forgotten legends and dazzle the world.
1.Kenshi (Main character)
He is a 17 year old male whose dream is to become the number one swordmaster and get a girlfriend. When he was younger, a fortune teller foretold that he would have trouble with women but misunderstood that he wouldn’t get a girlfriend. In his encounter with a sword,new friends and foes,his journey will be full of twists and turns. His personality is a happy go luck,kind,act first think later kind of guy. He is a bit shy around women and unaware of their feelings, but acts like a big brother to those younger than him.
Due to his love for swordmanship,it lead to him creating his own techniques. As he gains access to the powers and abilities of the past warriors, he combines his techniques with them,making it difficult for opponents to predict or defend against.
He wears a necklace from his deceased mother and retractable wristguards (refer kenichi history’s strongest disciple).Formerly wore traveller clothes with leather armor but changed to black hooded vest,baggy trouser and combat boots upon awaiting the Omniblade.
It is an ancient magical sword that was born from the essence of many swords from the battlefields and sealed itself underground waiting for a person capable of wielding it. Ion making contact with Kenshi’s soul, it gained self awareness and took up traits of a girl and was given the name Saya. She can materialize from the sword and take on the appearance of a teenage girl with silver hair and butterfly wings due to seeing a butterfly when coming out of the cave for the first time. Her personality is airheaded,emotionally attached to Kenshi and friendly to others. She takes on a serious attitude when in battle or training..

When Saya takes on the form of the sword, League’s clothes changes into that of the past wielder, however, when he loses consciousness or runs out of mana, they will revert back to their original forms. When Kenshi and Says truly become one, they enter a state called Soul Blade Synchro will grants them increase in abilities and access to highly advanced techniques.(refer Megaman BN Red Sun/Blue Moon)

MAIN CHARACTER ORIGIN
When I was creating my main protagonist, I wanted him to be different from the other McDonald so I made him less on magic casting and more on hack and slashing. I also wanted him to use all kinds of sword techniques by transforming like Drive form in Kingdom Hearts 2 or Kamen Rider Decade. When thinking about the past warriors, I wanted to adopt the sword styles from Ninja Gaiden, Kingdom Hearts 2,Devil May Cry and Onimusha. I also wanted my MC to face challenges of his dark side in order to attain greater strength.
When I thought of how the world would be,I wanted the first kingdom to be at a praise land, the second to be a t a coastal area, the third at an oasis area, the fourth at a mountainous area and the fifth at a forest area. I wanted an environmental effect on the magic used in the area.
