  • [Untrained Leader] Chosokabe Muneshige, and Friends

    Current Name: Chosokabe Muneshige
    Age: 72
    Sex: Female
    Height: 5’ 4”

    Character Type: Non-Shinobi (Untrained)

    Country/Village: Valley County/Brigade of Light Campus
    Rank: Wakamusha
    Division: Brigade of Light: First Brigadier

    Physical Description:
    Age has not taken the luster from her eyes and in short bursts, she moves as if fifty years younger. Her thin white hair will often be tied back in a bun. Muneshige’s skin is grey and pockmarked with heavy wrinkles along her face and hands. She speaks like a bullfrog, in mighty croaks and rumbles. Once she was portly and soft. Now she is stout and stiff. A scent of grass and herbs wafts from her on good days and tobacco on bad ones. She is not yet a husk- vigor and life somehow still fill those old bones.

    When traveling Muneshige typically wears the simple brown and white robes of traveling clergymen, with only a cloak pin showing her allegiance of the Brigade of Light. A travelling pack and bedroll are often strapped to her back, which she will insist on carrying herself. Inside are numerous books and scrolls over a variety of topics. Muneshige considers herself an ‘eternal student’. Her most important possession, a tobacco pouch and pipe, never seems to be far from her wrinkled fingers. Finally a simple pair of wooden sandals and cane finish off the ‘cranky old person’ aesthetic she loves to cultivate

    “I’m just as stupid as you,” Muneshige says, “Only I’ve been stupid longer.” Her purpose is to serve; whether it be people, causes, or gods, she always works under some banner. She doesn’t get conventionally angry. Muneshige’s justice is a slow burn. In the face of the most repulsive of horrors she is stoic and nostalgic. Her tone is weary, but excited, like an old dog finding strength to give one last chase. The old fart’s wits have dulled, but the perceptive will notice that beneath the tired eyes a beast still stirs, very much alive and ready to pounce.

    It’s fate, after all!

    Chosokabe Muneshige, also known as Shibo, Lady Uwai, or Jue, is the current alias of the servant of the now fallen Ashikaga warlord family. She was the first and only wife of royal guard commander Uwai Ranmaru and held the title of Chief Priestess at the Sentako-ji Temple in northern Valley Country. Her current employment is with the Brigade of Light, where she serves as a First Brigadier. Her current residence is on Long Lake, not far from the Brigade of Light’s university campus.

    Early Life
    Her mother, name unknown, was a servant under one of the wives of the Valley Country warlord Ashikaga no Masetake. Her mother gave birth to her third and last child over seventy years ago. The mother's two older sons both died as teenagers in battle serving in the Ashikaga military's raiding parties. The girl child was sired of an unknown father but as per custom she became the property of the Ashikaga estate and was raised to be a lady-in-waiting for the household. When the marriage of the Ashikaga's eldest son occurred, the married couple took with them many Ashikaga servants. Her mother, along with herself, were taken as well. She was given the name 'Shibo' around the beginning of her adolescence as was custom. The naming was done by Ashikaga's second wife, for whom Shibo would serve under for the next eleven years.

    As a slave Shibo’s duties were primarily focused on serving the non-primary wives of the elder Ashikaga. Due to the shortage of men during the outbreaks of fighting that occurred in this period within Valley Country, many tasks typically done by the male servants had to be done by female servants instead. Harsh war conditions meant those under the employ of warlords were trained to defend themselves, and the Ashikaga household was no exception. During the siege of Enshu-Ino Castle Shibo was part of the defending forces. After successfully repelling the attacking forces Ashikaga promoted some of his surviving slaves to elevated status, of which Shibo was included.

    Shibo was given as a wife to the captain of the Ashikaga patriarch's bodyguard, who was also his personal advisor, Uwai Ranmaru, around two years later. Shibo held onto her position as a caregiver and guardian to Ashikaga grandchildren even after the marriage. As a favored handmaiden (and from political favors owed to Ranmaru) the union was blessed by the lord and Uwai was given an honorary title under the lordship of Ashikaga no Masetake.

    Lady Uwai
    While the Uwai household was not considered noble, their positions in the court of the Ashikaga dynasty and good relations with the family ensured favored treatment throughout the remaining tenure of the aging patriarch. Notably, three of their eight children were educated by Ashikaga family tutors, and the two youngest boys both eventually came to high ranking positions within military outfits within Valley Country itself. Uwai’s posthumous elevation to landed noble after his death enabled several of the descendants of the Uwai household to posture for succession rights once the Ashikaga family fell apart in the middle of the century, the fighting of which still continues to this day.

    Lady Uwai herself sired a total of eight children, seven still alive presently, and five boys among them. She has four grandchildren among her offspring. She served as an attendant through the duration of her marriage to Uwai, and served the elder Ashikaga before his passing and his wife afterwards.

    Priestess Jue
    After the death of Ashikaga no Masetake’s primary wife she separated herself from the Ashikaga household as was instructed in the will of the late wife and undertook a pilgrimage. Her two remaining children, still not yet adults, were likewise given to a monastery for training. It would be six years later when she would be recognized as acolyte Jue of the Sentako-ji Temple, becoming a priestess of the shrine after four years of devotion and chief priestess after twelve years of service. During her time as a priestess Jue was known for her extensive traveling and interest in the occult. While serving at a shrine in Swamp she was accused of witchcraft on account of her youthful appearance despite her age. These rumors along with other accusations (such as consorting with devils and being responsible for missing children in the region) eventually lead to Jue being disposed of as the head priestess of her shrine in Valley Country. Rather than submit to a trial to prove her purity she chose to flee, and the specific accusations have never been proven nor disproved after the incident.

    It was believed Jue had committed ritual suicide after by throwing herself into the bogs, as was custom for disgraced priests. A public record of her death exists as her fellow priests observed the death, and though she received no burial a small memorial shrine was constructed years later in the spot of her demise.

    Presumed Dead
    Priestess Jue was believed dead for thirteen years and not seen in civilization for the duration. In fact she had faked her death, choosing to live as a hermit in the mountains of Coal Country and practice asceticism.

    Chosokabe Muneshige
    Five years ago, by chance, the Headmaster of the Brigade of Light located her dwelling while traveling. Though he knew not of her history, he persuaded her to rejoin society for under the flag of the Brigade of Light. With her decades of experience she quickly proved to be an adept and flexible leader. A rapid set of promotions brought her to the rank of First Brigadier within three years, allowing her to personally select her own team to serve the Brigade of Light’s needs. To date she has served on nine different Brigades, with the newest iteration being her tenth and having only been put together six months ago.
