Does anyone know why Nitan had been fighting Scatty? Were they just kinda play-fighting to see which was the better swordsman, or were they seriously trying to kill each other?

i think they were fighting for real. Niten even thought he was fighting Aoife at that time.

I think it was the other way around. Niten met Aoife because he thought he was fighting The Warrior Maid. I think it was said that Niten and Scatty and that he was the only humani to ever defeated Scathach.

Niten is an immortal human, not an elder.

does niten have an elder?

Yes, Niten's Elder is Benzaiten.

I just researched Benzaiten and it is the Japanese name for the Hindu goddess Saraswati.

If anyone needs some info on Myamoto Musashi - the most incredible swordsman and samurai of Japan (personal opinion of many including myself) whose pen name was Niten, you can read the Lone Samurai and several other books which are incredibly well written.

Among other things he is: great painter, experienced in the art of Noh, founder of the Niten Ichi-ryuu sword style of Japan (two swords - today's Wakizashi -shorter- and Katana -longer-), died from cancer while giving his all to the Buddhist Gods as a monk (sorry for the religious tpic, but this is a statement and no personal opinion s given. if you consider this as a breaking of the forums' rules, please delete it).

I found a pretty interesting photograph. I checked the dates on the invention of the camera and they seem to match up with dates before Niten died. It's a portrait of the man himself.

I know it contributes no way to conversation, but I thought it would be interesting to share. :3

Yeah I think he does it mostly because he enjoys her company and likes her as a friend, not for money (if he gets any, which I'm sure he doesn't).

Even if it were for money, Aoife would probably have no need for it. All the more likely that they stay together for friendship. Like Orik said.

I agree, but I don't think it's the relationship Machiavelli had/s with Dagon. The latter's relationship was more business. Dagon swore service to Machiavelli because of a life debt. Niten's relationship with Aoife was more rooted on friendship and that's the reason why he drove Aoife. I think Aoife did mention that Niten is an old friend.

You're right, I was only thinking of the part when Machiavelli did acknowledge Dagon as his friend.

I like Niten. It made me really sad when he cried over Aoife getting shut in the shadowrealm and when he vowed to go and get her. I hope he gets to see her again. flamelssecret/crying.gif

I started really liking Niten in this book. And he can make sushi!!!! flamelssecret/clap3.gif
