Suija is a demon who took over a random ninja of the Kazama clan. Suija is one of Liu Yunfei's disciples from 1,000 years ago who succumbed to the powers of the demon world. He and his brother became powerful elemental demons that were eventually sealed. However, they were able to break the seal. He possesses a shinobi from the Kazama clan, who was investigating evil energies close to the lake where he was sealed. He meant to reunite with his brother and steal a spell that Kuraki-sumeragi possessed. The spell allows demons to better fuse with a human host. With this spell, he wished to possess Sogetsu's body and mate with a woman to spread his essence in the human world. Parallel to Enja's fate with Kazuki, however, Suija is sealed in Sogetsu's weapon by Hazuki.

Although he is based on "Suija Sogetsu" from Samurai Shodown 64: Warriors Rage, he is not the same person as SogetsuDue to their likeliness to one another, the dubious nature behind Sogetsu's birth, as well as Suija's need for a human host, several fans speculate that he is actually Sogetsu's father. However, this claim also lacks a solid official source and is generally considered to be conjecture by fans.

Suija is definitely a weird character... even for Samurai Shodown. Also, where's his weapon? C'mon, that's kind of a standard to be on the roster of Samurai Shodown. Fighting with wrist gauntlets? Meh. I gotta say, I was disappointed in this character (and many others like him) during the timeline of SS5 / SS6.

At best, Suija has a memorable stance and a few cool moves... but as a blatant sprite clone of Sogetsu, my respect for his design isn't very high.  I also don't see what's so "samurai" about this guy. He appears to be all "God-like" which I don't think compliments the series very well. :/
