About the Samurai: 

Date Masamune is well known for having one eye, and even has the nickname "One-Eyed Dragon". When he was a child, smallpox took the sight in his right eye, though how he lost the actual eye itself, is left to different theories. Date Masamune ended up serving under Toyotomi Hideyoshi, which he was really left no choice to do. Date also expanded trade in the Touhoku region and even encouraged foreigners to come to his lands. He sent Hasekura Tsunenaga to go on a voyage to create relations with the Pope in Spain, making the voyage one of the first successful Japanese voyages to cross the world.
