      Noble Cousins!

      Greetings from Solveig! The 47 ronin were of course post period. Their
      story somewhat parallels the story of the Soga brothers. In both cases,
      the vitue exemplified was loyalty or filial piety after death. However,
      you should not casually dismiss the "riff-raff" branding by appeal to
      either of these stories. In both cases, the heros did to some extent
      or other live a life of being riff-raff before their hour of glory.
      As of Miyamoto Musashi. Most of his exploits take place during the
      Genroku period. He is also known as an accomplished artist.

      You really should not attempt to be one of these people directly. Their
      role is not one that you can simply step into.

      Your Humble Servant
