A willful young samurai-ko, Hinata is a force of nature, testing even the great Lord Katashi, her father. Try as he might to force the life of a dutiful samurai wife on the beautiful Hinata, she always snuck away for sword lessons with her big brother, Toshiro, who can never resist her begging and pleading.
She dreamed of the day when she would be free of her father, free to choose her own path and be the warrior she knows she can be. It was not surprising then, that when she met the ronin hero Sanjuro, she would fall head over heels.
Unfortunately for all around her, the infatuation grew, endangering her honor and Sanjuro’s life. However, Hotei must have been smiling upon her, for events transpired that brought Sanjuro into her clan (and thus, her father’s good graces) and allowed them to wed.
Now she has chosen to study the way of the Bushi, though in a surprising move she enrolled not in the Kakita Dueling Academy (both her brother and husband are master duelists), but with the more infantry-based Daidoji Iron Warriors, taking up the spear and heavy armor of a soldier.
With the unique combination of swordsmanship, courtly training, and the upcoming battlefield experience, Hinata could grow into a powerful and influential samurai.
