"Some things are worth dying for. Defending noble ideals or fighting for the oppressed. The honorable man must always stand firm before tyrants who would dominate the weak. The abuse of power must always be fought, and men of honor do not stand idly by while such evils are allowed to exist."
"Just like my dad."
"No, not like your father."

- Miyamoto and Valerian Mengsk(src)

Master Miyamoto was a sword fighter and teacher who served both Arcturus Mengsk, and later Valerian Mengsk.

Miyamoto was a strict teacher, who taught sword fighting, culture and battle tactics, taking much from the culture of Asia of old Earth. He had memorized The Book of Virtues and referenced it often in his training.


As a youth, Miyamoto's father gifted him a copy of the The Book of Virtues before his death, complete with an inscription he wrote in an unknown language. When he grew to be an adult, Miyamoto became a teacher at Styrling Academy on Korhal. He taught sword fighting to numerous students, including Arcturus Mengsk.


As the Rebellion of Korhal began to escalate, Arcturus Mengsk later hired Miyamoto to teach his son, Valerian, for an exorbitant fee when he had to continually move him around to avoid Confederate agents. Miyamoto taught the child academics and various forms of fighting. He ensured that Valerian learned concepts such as honor. Miyamoto hailed Valerian as his best ever student when it came to using a sword.

Dominion WarriorEdit

Miyamoto accompanied Arcturus and Valerian Mengsk to Umoja six months after the Terran Dominion was inaugurated.

While there, they were struck by a surprise attack launched by the Confederate Resistance Forces. A number of Wraiths and 30 marines led by Captain Angelina Emillian had come to Umoja, seeking to kill Arcturus Mengsk. They heavily outnumbered the Dominion and Umojan defenders.

The Mengsks and Miyamoto took shelter in a landing bay and crashed ship. Miyamoto fought back with his rifle and suffered injuries, eventually falling to a shot in the back from Emillian. Valerian Mengsk and Emillian faced each other, and Emillian clearly had the upper hand, but Miyamoto wasn't dead yet. With his last strength he damaged her gauss rifle with his sword, enabling Valerian to shoot her down.
