The Nine Swords
Yuan Shao, Captain General
Lord Yoshi's Captain General From Across the Sea
Yuan Shao is another ally from the nation across the sea who is currently aiding Toranaga. Yuan Shao is part of one of the greatest noble bloodlines, but he is the lone survivor of his family line. In a period of political unrest and upheaval years ago, his entire line was slain with the exception of him. Fleeing his ultimate destruction, he came to Nippon across the sea seeking a new life. His prowess on the battlefield and strong personality makes him an excellent leader, and Lord Toranaga took the opportunity to add Yuan Shao’s talents to his own military. Yuan Shao adorns himself in the golden armor of his noble ancestors, and he wields a longsword made of strange metals.
