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 major and minor characters who will either support or oppose him.
In every village, temple, and survivor camp you visit, you will meet NPCs that will provide various services to you to upgrade your armor, weapons, and items.
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.
Years pass, and Jin becomes a full-grown man, a warrior capable of protecting his homeland.
Lord Harunobu Adachi is one of the trusted powerful Samurai of Lord Shimura. At the start of the Mongol empire invasion, he alone went down to face and challenge them for one-on-one duels.
He introduced himself as the descendant of the legendary Yoshinobu Adachi.
It didn't end well for him though, as the Mongol empire fights differently (they burned him alive).
Masako is a powerful samurai who is going to help Jin in fighting the forces of the Mongol army.

Shimura is the lord of Tsushima Island and uncle and mentor of Jin. He trained Jin as a young boy on the art of the sword and in the code of the Samurai.
