Tomoe Gozen 巴御前- onna bugeisha
Tomoe Gozen was a female samurai during the Genpei War of 1180–1185 CE. Though female warriors were not uncommon in Japan at the time, Tomoe is one of very few female samurai, highly trained and skilled in horseback riding, archery, sword fighting and she was also greatly skilled in the use of the naginata, which is a long staff with a curved blade at one end. Tomoe Gozen beheaded many enemies with naginata, because she didn’t believe in staying behind in battles, she was always at the fore front of any battle line.
She was a senior captain under general Minamoto no Yoshinaka, and either his attendant or consort as well, depending on the source. Her surname is not known, as Gozen is simply a title, somewhat like “Lady.”
The earliest written source regarding Tomoe Gozen is from the 14th century Japanese classic, The Tale of the Heike, which in turn is derived from oral tradition. This source describes her as almost supernaturally strong, very beautiful, and surpassing her male colleagues in skill and bravery.
The Heike Monogatari goes on to say that Tomoe was one of the last five of Yoshinaka’s warriors standing at the tail end of the Battle of Awazu, and that Yoshinaka, knowing that death was near, urged her to flee. Though reluctant, she rushed a Minamoto warrior named Onda no Hachirô Moroshige, cut his head off, and then fled for the eastern provinces.
Some have written that Tomoe in fact died in battle with her husband, while others assert that she survived and became a nun.

"Shane Mahan, Physical Suit Effects Supervisor at Legacy Effects describes the process of creating the Winter Soldier’s arm from a life-cast of actor Sebastian Stan. ‘First, we do an exact mold of the actor’s arm for the size and the dimension, and then we do a casting out of that. But we also took him to get a 3D scan of his arm, so we had digital information as well as a hard, real-world casting to work from. We took the designs from Ryan Meinerding’s design team, and then one of our digital artists here — Won-Il Song — created a digital sculpture.’"
"Legacy created two versions of the Winter Soldier’s arm. ‘We made one from foam rubber with tracking markers on it for extreme action," Mahan says. "And then there were these arms made of urethane that were metalized and had less action mobility, but for certain shots looked reflective and really great.’"
According to Sebastian, in this video, the arm was “very heavy, and not easily moveable — but it looks better”, and the other arm was more lightweight and flexible. He used the heavier, better looking arm for most of the shots, only using the lighter one when needed. (He said it was a big confidence boost.) Sebastian also mentions spending around 6-7 months training for the role, working for almost half that time with Chris Evans on choreography.
