Is this necessary? He's only been mentioned by name, and I don't even think we have a spoiler for him. I could be wrong on that last part, don't tell me if I am. We don't need a page for him. Not yet.--Riddler 15:25, 5 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Since Hiro and Takezo need to go save him, I'm sure he's going to end up with an article. When we know something's going to definitely have an article and we already have some information on it then it's usually beneficial to create the article early. (Admin 15:35, 5 October 2007 (EDT))
  • He was on the Checklist and I wanted experience at creating a character page. Let me fry the little fish before I go for the big ones, dammit! :D--NissanVersaDootDoot 15:38, 5 October 2007 (EDT)
    • Don't worry... it's common for us to question whether certain new articles need to exist. In fact, I do it a lot. :) But in this case I definitely see the value in it. (Admin 15:41, 5 October 2007 (EDT))
  • The father of a major character? Yeah, I'd say he's as deserving of an article as Ishi, Matthew, or even McSorley or Harry Fletcher. Plus, I have a feeling that, since he is so often been mentioned (never by name, only as "the swordsmith" or "Yaeko's father"), I have a feeling he might play a semi-important role. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:45, 5 October 2007 (EDT)

The swordsmith

So the swordsmith is the origin of smith in Smith & Wesson? Heh. Seriously, in 1671 there's not supposed to be rifles, not even muskets... not Japan, not anywhere until the 1800's! This makes the swordsmith the inventor of the rifle, and thus totally re-writes history with Japan winning WWII? So when Peter goes to the future 2008, is this the one where Japan won the war or it didn't? Hmm.--MiamiVolts (talk) 23:56, 29 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Evidence of muskets has been found in Asia dating back to the 14th century. It wasn't until the 1800s when they were mass produced, however. If Hiro succeeds in destroying the guns, then he'll effectively keep history the way we know it. -- Paronine 00:24, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
    • I stand corrected, there was a mass-produced gun in the 1500s called the Arquebus. Portugese traders made them popular in Japan until all guns were banned. It would be nice if they could put some of this history about Japanese weapons at Yamagato.com...--MiamiVolts (talk) 12:27, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
  • This history is not over with yet. --Bob (talk) 00:01, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
    • Theoretically, yes and no. Hiro may have done more things and been able to preserve history the way we know it, but it's not looking so good right now... and also, Ando has no more scrolls so how does he find out what happened next?--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:41, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
  • I'm speculating here, but I'm under the assumption that the evacuation of NY has to do with Maya's ability and her trek to New York. I can imagine she'd be pretty sad to go all that way only to find Chandra dead. (Admin 00:07, 30 October 2007 (EDT))
    • That or the variation of the virus. Mohinder mentions it could cross over and he couldn't control it. Why do they have to keep destroying New York, and a time-traveler has to fix it?--Bob (talk) 00:18, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Right, but the alteration of New York could be due to both Hiro's and Maya's/the Company's doing... we'll have to wait and see.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:41, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
  • I haven't seen an official credit yet, but I think the actor is Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0846480), known for a lot of his earlier work in martial art movies, usually playing the evil, menacing bad guy. Anyone else agree?--Umé 00:53, 30 October 2007 (EDT)
