Minobu Tetsuhara.  He was a black samurai who had to kill himself because bushido is stupid.  Jaime Wolf was his second, the guy responsible for cutting off his head when Minobu began to show pain for sticking a sword in his gut.  This is what would have happened if Wolf were a jerk.

Now, now.  Bushido has it's points.  The thing is, Minobu was trapped by Greig Sampsonov - another servant of the Dragon who didn't buy into Bushido and it cost the Combine the services of Wolf's Dragoons and ultimately Sampsonov his head.  (I approve of that part.) 

Wolf actually used a pistol since he was gaijin (a foreigner).  It was just as repulsive to Wolf as it is to Jal, but he did his best for his friend.  Natasha Kerensky was present and she was as stoic as Minobu. 

Back to the motivationals!

Okay, I've seen the original Battle Cobra before, but I don't think I've seen the midget Kodiak.  Should I be afraid?
I'm not sure how long you've been around on the forums, though you have a thousand posts. Never take anything JKlantern says seriously unless it's about food.

It's the artwork the mini was based off, so it's very close to that.  Except the artist did a very strange thing with the legs.  Yeah, it was a dark time for Battletech art.

The motivation's good, but the picture doesn't seem to fit.
It's more of an understatement actually. But maybe that's just me.

Retitle that one "I shot the Sherriff...  but I didn't shoot the Deputy".

Actually the greatest service done for the Clans.
