      Yeah, I am aware of the stigma of being masterless, since a samurai's
      life was to serve his liege lord, but it is hard to come up with a
      plausable back story to explain one's presense in Europe.

      If for no other reason, then simply because a samurai wouldnt be very
      likely to leave his home, and master to roam the earth without being
      ordered to do so.

      I agree. And that is the one i preferre as well.

      Thanks so much for the insight!
