Malefactor's Waistguard Description
Underneath the pheasant tail feathers are long tassets, hanging from the waist, that reach all the way down to the knees. As the feathers do not offer any form of protection, it seems that Hisahide had them added purely for aesthetic effect.
Armor worn by Matsunaga Hisahide. Responsible for many atrocities, such as the assassination of shogun Ashikaga Yoshiteru. the destruction of the Miyoshi Triumvirate and the needless burning down of the Great Buddha Hall of Todaiji, he was viewed with considerable caution by Oda Nobunaga.
