His blood is rumoured to burn like acid as those that have struck him can attest though few live to tell such tales. In combat he can perform great leaps, stand instantly when knocked prone and move with far greater agility than any hill giant.

He was named in the tradition of giant clans - he protected his sister by head butting a charging bull when he was young. Boulder came to the guild because, even though his father is the chief and he is first born, he was too short to join the elite guard or be considered chief after his father before him.

Appearance

People often remark that Boulder has a friendly glint in his eyes & even though he has seen many horrors in his short years he carries himself lightly. He has a bald head except for a platted knot at the back.

Boulder wears a finely tailored but very simple Samuri garb.
The swords of 'Great Winds' and 'Raging Fires' are visible above his shoulders. The hafts are made from dragon bone and are finely carved, the Pommels are each carved into the form of a dragon head.


Poems

Samurai pic.jpg

Whether one passes on or remains is all the same.
That you can take no one with you is the only difference.
Ah, how pleasant! Two awakenings and one sleep.
This dream of a fleeting world! The roseate hues of early dawn!



Both the victor
and the vanquished are
but drops of dew,
but bolts of lightning -
thus should we view the world.

My life
came like dew
disappears like dew.
All of Nervana
is dream after dream.

Story

The Gates of paradise

A soldier named Nobushige came to Hakuin, and asked: "is there really a paradise and a hell?"

"Who are you?" inquired Hakuin. "I am a Samuri," The warrior replied. "You, a solider!" exclaimed Hakuin. "What kind of rulier would have you as his guard? Your face looks like that of a begger."

Nobushige became so angry that he began to draw his sword, but Hakuin continued: "So you have a sword! Your weapon is probably much to dull to cut off my head."

As Nobushige drew his sword Hakuin remarked: "here open the gates of hell!"

At these words the samuri, perceiving the masters's discipline, sheathed his sword and bowed.

"Here open the gates of paradise," said Hakuin.
