Sara’s called to investigate the beheading of a security guard at the Museum of natural History. Whilst doing a routine sweep of the crime scene she enters a stockroom near the body, it’s full of artefacts which are awaiting display, she hears strange noise and ventures further in. She’s confronted by a suit of Samurai armour wielding a sword. She tries to defend herself but her bullets do nothing do she grabs it using the Witchblade and is then shown a samurai and his blade, together the two were invincible On his death the sword passed to another who also enjoyed great success, but over the years it became unclear who controlled who.
