Dark Wind is a scientific genius and a skilled swordsman. He employs a large group of warriors, mostly samurais using swords and bow and arrow, but he also uses a number of ninja as well.
In 1945, famous war hero Oyama flew a kamikaze plane into a US aircraft, but his bombs failed to detonate. Shamed and scarred, Oyama became a prisoner of war. After Japanís surrender, a hooded Oyama vowed to hide his face until he had restored Japanís tarnished honour and old values. Profiting from a war experiences book, Oyama bought an island off Hokkaidoís coast, married and had three children whose faces he branded as a sign of superiority. His code attracting devoteeís, Oyama financed reactionary political activity, and his sonís died trying to assassinate Japanís Prime Minister. Oyama renamed himself Darkwind, symbolising a wind from the past that would sweep away the landís shame, and began his quest for the ultimate warrior.
