The Ronin gang was a group of renegade lordless samurai. They were wiped out after finally penetrating the fortress of Shogun Mashashige. The leader of the ronin was the shoguns brother Ryuku. The last of the Ronin were wiped out when they demanded that the outlanders leave, and leave their blasters behind. Ryan and the others didn't like that idea at all and open up on them, killing them to the last man.
