Demon Slayer Swordsman[edit]

A circle of assorted abominations circles around one cloaked man. A situation considered unfavorable to most. As the man inhales, the air is visibly pulled into his lungs. He reaches for his blade and under the moonlight, it glistens a dark blue tint. Mizu no Kokyuu.. A stream of water trails from his blade as he ducks and dodges around, slicing off the heads of each and every one of his assailants. He stands alone in the bloody field under the moon, as the bodies begin disintegrating.

A Demon Slayer is a person who has dedicated the rest of their life to making every effort to slay any demon they come across. They refine their sword style and increase their power using specific breathing techniques to put their physiology next to those of demons. They wield a katana made of Nichirin, able to deal permanent damage to demons, and are trained in the art of "No Mercy."
