I don't know why, but I just don't like Niten... I think he might be evil

I never found a reference to any historical person with the name of niten, but what i found was that Niten Ichi-ryu, is an art of swordsmanship that the character niten uses. Now that means that it is not his real name, but one which he uses. So who is he really? A famous swordsman of the art, perhaps? But which one? I think he is very mysterious, and also very interesting!!

Here's the quote to help you Baksh:
QUOTE (The Necromancer p.142)
"Niten was also known as Miyamoto Musashi."

I agree with the idea that he probably knows the Elemental Magic of Water, because he does have a boathouse....but that could be coincidence...but Nicholas Flamel doesnt believe in coincidence

Miyamoto Musashi was one of the most legendary samurai of his time it is no wonder he was picked up as a character in this book. I dont think he is an elemental of water yes he was a boathouse that he never visits but like the flamels have their house in a book store it is secret and discreet.

And that he was the only Humani who ever defeated Scathach in a battle. I wonder why they were fighting in the first place..and if he defeated her why didn't he kill her?

Really ?? and why is that ?
I just can't see why ? We don't know enough about him except that he's a friend of Aiofe and a good one ... Nothing more nothing less...

I... don't... know...

He is just so much better in so many ways. So graceful... so mysterious... so informant... so knowledgeable. I love sword fighters too. And he's just... so awesome!

My favourite Niten scene of all time and probably always will be (it's also my favourite Quote / scene / conversation out of the whole series so far):

QUOTE ( Necromancer Page 127-128)
" I am immortal, and though I have not lived as long as Nicholas or Perenelle, I am now, and have always been, a warrior. And if that life has taught me anything, it is that in every war, both sides believe they are right."
     "And what about us, Niten?" Josh asked. "Are we on the right side?"
    
"You are on a side, and that is important. You don't have to stay on that side. Often the greatest act of courage is admitting that one has made a mistake." He paused, then added, "Follow your hearts. Protect one another, trust one another because at the end of the day, all of these people want something from you, or want you to do something for them, or be something that you are not. Your only responsibility is to one another." Then turned and walked away.

Now do you see my point? wub.gif wub.gif wub.gif

Before the Necromancer, I had never heard of Niten. (That's happening with a lot of characters... xD) But he is a very cool guy, plus he's Japanese. I like the idea of him being Sophie's guard for a while, he seems kind of like Butler from Artemis Fowl.

He does now doesn't he!

Butler...

I have heard of him, I just didn't know it. I did a speech about Japanese historians, and I spoke of Miyamoto Musashi. (Another name Niten was known as)

Now that is cool! I hope we hear about him more in the Warlock, I think he'll be a nice addition to the good guys. xD
