Blustering Tokugawa Daimyo.
The current Daimyo of the Tokugawa clan. An enormously large, unpleasant man with a mocking smile. He is known to reside at the Palace of the Firebird in Mikawa province, but often leaves his seat of power to attend functions held by other lords. Said to be only a moderately strong fighter himself, but his bodyguard, the legendary Honda Tadakatsu, is known as the greatest warrior in all of Japan.
Tokugawa Ieyasu was present during both Shogunate inheritance ceremonies attended by Hashinara Katamoto and his retinue. In the first, he said little, and was teleported out of the fray by Takenaka Hanbei when Oda Nobunaga killed the soon-to-be Shogun and let her troops loose upon the visitors.
During the second ceremony, for Ashikaga Yoshiaki, he took a more prominent role, actively involving himself with and taunting the other Daimyo. As Yoshiaki had pardoned Nobunaga, any aggression toward Ieyasu would have constituted an act of war against the mighty Tokugawa clan; a fact which he used to its utmost unpleasantness against his rival leaders.
