This pin captures the aura of a samurai really well for me. In my opinion it captures patience and pride just through the use of clothing and stance alone. Clothing and stance are something I could use to conjure the same effect in my game.
Samurai Clan Colors; don't know if this is any use, maybe not of your era, but interesting anyway.
