Azai Nagasama Information
Azai Nagamasa is a daimyo of Omi Province (modern-day Shiga Prefecture). He married Oichi, Oda Nobunaga's sister, in order to forge an alliance with the Oda clan as Nobunaga's campaign advanced Owari into Mino.
Though Nobunaga viewed Nagamasa as a trusted brother-in-law, Nagamasa would betray his trust when he suddenly attacked Nobunaga's forces as they were on their way to attack the Asakura clan in Echizen.
Nagamasa and Oichi led a happy life together after their marriage. Nagamasa deeply respected his brother-in-law, Nobunaga, and tried to follow in his footsteps. But faced with such a relentlessly driven example to follow, he never felt like he was good enough. Sensing Nagamasa's emotional vulnerability, the man with the staff seized the oppurtunity to posses him, causing Nagamasa to betray Nobunaga. After being defeated in the Battle of Anegawa, Nagamasa retreats to the safety of his own castle, but is ultimately forced to confront the protagonist in the castle keep. He transforms into a yokai, but this is not enough to prevent the protagonist from defeating him. As he finally regains his senses, he entrusts the protagonistst with Oichi's safety before drawing his last breath.
Having died with so much regret, Nagamasa lingered in the Interim, unable to move on to the next stage of his existence. When he meets the protagonist again, he learns the the daughter he conceived with Oichi is safe, and is finally able to rest in piece.
Chacha, Nagamasa's daughter, would come to be known as Yodogimi, mother of Tokichiro's heir, Hideyori . She would have a great impact on events for generation to come.
