Thanks to an imperial mining permit, the Mishima clan has grown rich from silver mines -- but local rivals exterminate the clan, leaving only the heir Seijūro, who escapes to the capital. There he trains in swordsmanship, plans for his clan's revival and begins to get involved in shipping and trade, showing some talent as a merchant. He soon fixates on the power of firearms and masters their manufacture, use and strategy while restraining the circulation of the necessary raw materials.
