"Tensely drawn bow string
Swift arrows release and soar
Few are left standing
Hateful sword striking
Kaemon Awa quickly draws
Awa is faster"
- A pair of haiku writ of Kaemon Awa in battle.
Kaemon Awa fervently fighting on the field of battle is a thing of deadly beauty. It inspires allies to brave feats, and terrifies foes to shameful retreat. Arrows fly from his bow at an unbelievable pace. Enemies are not safe from afar, and less so from up close, for Awa is even more lethal with his sword drawn.

Awa is one of only two Samurai Heroes in the game. He is a hero version of the Tagawa Samurai Archers, and can compliment your unique Samurai squads by providing covering fire. His range is average, but his attack is rather high for a ranged character. Like with all ranged units, get him some height. His counter-strike will keep most enemies away from him while you gun your enemies down.
Awa is a pretty average figure, but as is the case with all Samurai, the key is to boost his defense. Be sure to draft Raelin and get some height advantage if you can. If you want a Samurai army, Kaemon Awa would be a deadly asset to your forces.
