Audacious Daimyo of the North.
The Daimyo of the Date clan. A brash, ambitious young man whose skill with the blade is near unparalleled. Has a strong sense of right that does not preclude his love of battle and conquest.
Date Masamune was present at the ceremony to bestow upon Ashikaga Yoshikage the title of Shogun. When Oda Nobunaga appeared with her forces and killed Yoshikage, Masamune was among the first to engage the enemies, taking great joy in the battle and single-handedly slaying five enemies, including the monstrous Saru.
After the battle, Date agreed to stay with Mori Motonari, Hojo Ujiyasu, and Katsusada Shishauezaemon to ensure that the next in line for shogun, Ashikaga Yoshiaki, would take the position without incident.
