An enigma has washed up, scarred and half-dead, upon the shores of southern Japan -

'... His physique is superb; clearly he is as strong as an ox. He easily stands head and shoulders above most Japanese males. In age, he appears to be still in his early twenties. His teeth are a gleaming white, his skin as black as charcoal. He speaks no known tongue - certainly not Japanese, nor any of the familiar gaijin languages such as Portuguese, Dutch or English. Yet his eyes sparkle with evident intelligence, and he looks frankly and without the least sign of nervousness or fear at anyone who attempts to address him.

'... So far as determining who he is, where he comes from or indeed discovering anything at all concerning him, however, all attempts have as yet been in vain... '
