the game follows travis touchdown, an otaku who wins a beam katana in an auction, from which he inadvertently becomes involved in the united assassins association and forced to kill assassins higher in rank to prevent other assassins from targeting him.
the reason why travis touchdown is one of my favorite characters of all time is not only does he get really interesting character growth throughout the four games he stars in, but he follows the bushido code and is like... this freaky modern otaku samurai. it's fucking awesome. if you're genuinely wondering what i see in him: it's his loyalty and ambition.
that and i would love to peg him :)
