The Nine Swords
Saigawa Zataki, General
Half Brother of Regent Lord Yoshi
Monk 2 / Paladin 4 / Marshal 4
Saigawa Zataki is the younger half-brother of Lord Toranaga, and he is also the daimyo of the Shinano province. Once his brother Toranaga became a general in the Taikō’s army, Zataki insisted that he serve under Toranaga for the honor of his family. Zataki is a younger man in his mid-20s with a tall, lithe build and long flowing black hair. He adorns himself with the Saigawa family colors of blue and white and wields a spear in combat. Although his familial relationship with Lord Toranaga would invite suspicions of favoritism, Lord Toranaga treats his half-brother no differently than any other soldier.
Most recently, Zataki assisted The Nine Swords in storming Fujiwa Kanto’s stronghold to seek the assistance of Hokadio Chimmoku in healing Sasuke.
