A determined young monster dressed in the traditional traveling robes of a young Shaolin monk. It wishes to learn the ways of the powerful warriors by learning to be at peace with itself, but can be very contrary sometimes. Although its design stays the same through both of its appearances, its name is changed. Not to be confused with Sharorin, another breed of Suzurin.
Its original name is a reference to the Samurai, the ancient military nobility of Japan. However, this monster's dress is much different than the traditional samurai armor, so the name may be a mistake.
Later its name is a play on the word Shaolin, a type of kung-fu that is one of the oldest types of Chinese martial arts. It has spawned a fiction sect of martial artists based on the Shaolin monastery. This monster dresses like a person from this sect.
