Very little is known about Saito’s past, but it is said that he is the first-born of a prestigious samurai clan in Edo. However, being strongly left-handed left him unable to learn their clan’s sword techniques, but he compensated by learning and mastering the Iaijutsu. Saito was falsely accused of murdering a fellow clansman despite being challenged to a duel and was later exiled from his clan.
Excuse me while I find some tissues for my bleeding nose. Saito’s probably going to be my most favorite character from the series forever. Thanks to Demi for sharing this!
