From Ryu Hayabusa's dialogue from the intro:
With whom did father have a duel and lose?.. For what reason did he fight and die?

Even I don't know for sure.

The day after he disappeared, in father's room I found a letter addressed to me.

It said,
"Ryu, I am on my way to a life or death duel.

"If it is destiny that I not return, you are to take the Dragon sword of the Hayabusa family and go to America and see the archaeologist, Walter Smith.

Ryu, be always brave..."
"I will get my revenge!"
