Background[]

He was a great hero of long ago. It is unknown if Paladins named themselves in his honor (thus making him the first Paladin), or if he just chose to live up this name. He was one of the biggest of the big-time Heroes.

He spent years saving people, fighting evil, and crusading in the name of goodness and honor. He made the ultimate sacrifice by giving up his body and soul to restore the Duck of Equilibrium, bringing balance back to the world. Fortunately, he got better. He had three adventures afterwards, and trained with monks in the Far East.

Behind the scenes[]

One of the backers for Hero-U. The name sama and reference to Far East would denote a reference to the Japanese 'honorific' -sama (indicating he has visited Nihon but possibly has been to Shenzhou as well).

Sama (様【さま】) is a more respectful version for people of a higher rank than oneself or divine, toward one's guests or customers (such as a sports venue announcer addressing members of the audience), and sometimes toward people one greatly admires. It is seemingly said to be the origin word for -san but there is no major evidence otherwise. Deities such as native Shinto kami and the Christian God are referred to as kami-sama, meaning "Revered spirit-sama". When used to refer to oneself, -sama expresses extreme arrogance (or self-effacing irony), as in praising one's self to be of a higher rank, as with ore-sama (俺様, "my esteemed self").
