Legends had always spoke of legendary swordsmen, those with skills that could be considered to be of a level of almost godlike proportions, and while some may have deduced that these legends were exaggerations that wasn't always the case. Sure, most of these stories were just stories to most. Speaking of some bygone hero saving a village or some great ronin walking the country side fighting only the most worthy of foes. These stories were to most just hyperbole, not meant to be taken seriously, and to be used as a tool to keep kids interested in history, but there were truths to some stories. Hidden messages that carried far more weight than most common people knew. Just where did myth and man collide? These stories had to have come from somewhere, but where and to who did these stories pertain?
Steiner had heard so many stories in his search for someone to teach him more about the way of the sword that by now he had become a well-versed historian in old samurai lore. It was almost ridiculous how much information someone could get by simply sitting down with common people and having a nice cup of tea while enjoying pastries. Steiner had learned of several legends, but one name stood out to him. It was a name that was in documentation and in a way it gave credence to those old stories and linked the myth with the man behind the myth. So, he went on with his search, gathering intel on the man he was seeking much like any person would before going in for an interview, and then made his way deep into the wilds. For the person he sought was no common man, but a legendary swordsmen far stronger than most that had been seen in generations, and he sought to be taught, even for a little bit by this person.
Ulv had taught him a great deal, but the things that she could teach him about using a sword were slim to none, being a fist fighter she lacked the refinery of a man holding a blade, and wielding it properly. No, he needed outside help for this, and his path led him to one man who had the skills that met all the criteria for a man who could educate him past his speed bump of limitations. Ever since his parents had been slaughtered, Steiner knew that he needed to do more than just self-train, and self-discipline. He needed people who had the ability to educated him and take him a step further if they could help, and this guy though he had his issues, was the perfect guy to seek out to do that. Perhaps he could show him what he was doing wrong? And who might this guy be? Well he wasn't a very friendly sort from what he had read during a very short time that he had been in possession of Vanguard related files, but he was a skilled master of the sword. And he fit the bill entirely for what Steiner needed now.
The man that Steiner Franz needed more than anything right now was...Stefan Soan.
