"If you are reading this, then it means the rumours were true, it means all this time when everyone thought you were dead, some have even thought you were nothing but a myth told to scare off the little ones but I, Asami ikuro knew this day would come, I know it must have been hardest for you that fateful night. I just can't help myself feel guilty for what happened to Shiroi, I have lived all my life with the guilt of what I didn't do, perhaps I should have stayed or at least tried to fight and defend her but I was a coward I always were. Hageru, I know it is wrong for me to even seek your face or ask you of this great favour but you must know I had no other option and I would never forgive myself to betray your oath to me and my family, the same oath you honoured for fifteen years. Although while I understand you would prefer to be left alone as finding you have proven impossible for the last twelve years I have been searching, I must ask you to please help me. I am terribly sick, injured from the ongoing battle and i have returned home, to our home my brother to rest with my fathers as they did with theirs but the King-Emperor has asked of my service once more, a mission that could end the war once and for all and bring peace to the seven nations. Failure is not an option and i have no one else who i can entrust with this mission but you, please if you are reading this brother, I ask you to return home, to come back to the land you sacrificed so much for. Because this time, I need you, Hageru Akuma, Grand Champion of Ushinatta."
