In the far reaches of the east, there was a small kingdom that existed in complete isolation. It forbade contact with the outside world and cultivated its own unique culture, and Galia loved it with every fiber of his being. He had endured a long, difficult voyage to reach this place, and he was convinced that no other realm could rival its pristine beauty. And so he resolved to devote his life to his kingdom, even if that meant his death.

Samurai, usually referred to in Japanese as bushi or buke, were the military nobility of medieval and early-modern Japan. By the end of the 12th century, samurai became almost entirely synonymous with bushi, and the word was closely associated with the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class. The samurai followed a set of rules that came to be known as bushidō.
From Lithuanian language galia translates as "power, strength; action".
