Ghost of Tsushima: Characters Guide
The game's major character is Jin Sakai, a powerful samurai who undergoes a transformational journey in his quest to free his home and its people from the hands of the invading Mongol empire. In this journey, you will meet the characters who support him in this mission, and those who oppose him.
Jin Sakai grew up under the guidance of his uncle Shimura, the lord of the Tsushima Island, and his master in the art of the sword.
One of the earliest and most important lessons Shimura imparts to Jin is the Honor of the Samurai.
When we fight, we face our enemy head-on. And when we take their lives, we look them in the eye, with courage and respect. This is what makes us Samurai.
