The master's daughter is kidnapped by the same enemies who killed her father and stole his secret scrolls. The four fighters rescue her and retrieve the scrolls by defeating the enemies. The daughter appears in the games introduction and at the end with whichever fighter the player chose.
In SW3, the Blazers (comprised of Gill, Glen, and the new fighter Glenda) are again attempting to rescue their master's daughter from her kidnappers. Unfortunately, they end up tracking down the wrong enemy organization!
