Cpt. Nathan Algren
The Last Samurai Daimyo Class Samurai Armour
Nathan Algren is the fictional U.S. Army captain character that Tom Cruise portrayed in the movie “The Last Samurai”. As most are familiar, Nathan Algren was taken as a prisoner of war by the samurai leader “Katsumoto” (Ken Watanabe). The character “Katsumoto” is believed to portray the life of legendary Saigo Takamori, who led a small band of samurai warriors against the Japanese imperial government.
Although the “The Last Samurai” movie is based off of actual events, it is largely fictional, and the armour was replica plastic/fibreglass armor used for the film set.
