The Samurai began life as retainers to the nobility and over time became known as the main warrior body of Japan. Initially, they were cavalry, armed with hand weapons and missile weapons. Hard hitting and superbly trained they were a professional force given many privileges as long as they served well. A well-timed strike by a unit of Samurai horsemen could turn the tide of a battle.
Komainu, or lion-dogs, are the statue guardians of the most sacred inner buildings of Shinto shrines, most often acting in pairs to ward off evil spirits. In the battles of Erehwon, mystical energies can animate the stone watchers as terrifying mounts for the most skilled of Samurai. Such warriors are a swift and deadly force, packing a tremendous punch on the charge. Fear the Komainu's bite, for to be caught in its grip will surely see bones ground to dust.
