Poppy is a dog Galford
adopted before he departed for Japan. She grew up during Galford's training
and became his loyal companion. In her ending for Samurai Shodown V,
she sacrifices herself to save Galford while he was saving one of her puppies.
In honor of her memory, Galford renames one of her puppies in her name. Poppie
in most installments of the Samurai Shodown series... but in Samurai Shodown
5 & 6, she actually fights on her own.
