At the end of the Edo period, Nagasaki was the only port open to trading with the Dutch. It was an unlawful town controlled by powerful interests and extreme violence. Wealthy merchants were those in power. The poor townspeople were at their mercy and cowered under their brutality. There arose a group of arbiters who would punish by their own justice those who couldn't be punished by the law. People called them the Dark Magistrates.
