Genji: Dawn of the Samurai

Minamoto Yoshitsune (源 義経) is the main protagonist of the Genji series. He is the son of Minamoto Yoshitomo, and the younger brother of Minamoto Yoritomo. He is also the one who defeated the Heishi, and both times he was helped by Musashibo Benkei and Shizuka Gozen.


Yoshitsune has the typical hero personality, he has a natural instinct for what is right and wrong; he is not fooled easily but sometimes lets his emotions get the best of him, like the duel he had with his brother Yoritomo, which he almost gave up his Amahagane to his brother so that he could save Yoritomo from the Mashogane he had given himself up to.


Yoshitune has long black hair which is tied up in a pony tail and brown eyes. In Genji: Dawn of the Samurai Yoshitsune wore a White - Red Kimono and chest armour with criss crossing red straps on his forehead. During the events of Genji: Days of the Blade, he wears ornate Samurai armour including chest armour that is slightly different than in the first game.
