In the Shadow of the Tyrant
The current and previous ruling clan of Shizamu, the Hashikawa clan has its roots deep in honor and tradition. Until recent events, the clan head was Hashikawa Hachirou, a massively fat and incompetent man who used the family’s resources only for his own greed. The clan’s honor has been restored with the death of Hachirou and the rise of his son Ryo to power. Though placing a great emphasis on formality and tradition, he has proven a competent ruler most notable for overseeing Shizamu’s unification following the dissolution caused by KaRZAK’s appearance.
