Saito Yoshitatsu Information
Saito Yoshitatsu is a daimyo of Mino Province and Saito Dosan's son and heir. Upon Dosan's retirement, Yoshitatsu inherited the leadership of the clan and became the master of Inabayama Castle. However, he and his father would later become enemies. Yoshitatsu also fought against Oda Nobunaga of Owari, using the crumbing ruins of Inabayama as her base of operations.
In order to obtain the power needed to stand against his father, Yoshitatsu turned to the Spirit Stones. Eventually, he instigated a rebellion against his father in the hope of seizing Dosan's amassed store of Spirit Stones, sending an army that included yokai to attack Dosan and driving him to his death.
The Oda forces began to advance on lnabayama Castle, intending to capture Mino. The day before the castle fell, the protagonist—bearing a striking resemblance to Yoshitatsu—arrived in the castle keep. Before he could say anything, Yoshitatsu collapsed, and the man with the staff emerged from his/her corrupted body. Yoshitatsu had been enthralled by the Spirit Stones, and the man with the staff had seized upon the weakness in Yoshitatsu's heart to consume him. It was a truly miserable way to go.
A long time ago, Saito Dosan, who had once gone by the name "Hidetatsu", had bestowed the names Hide and Tatsu on his two children. This is why the name "Hide" is inscribed upon the protagonist's dagger.

So...to get this straight (and this is at a point where I beat them and don't know anything beyond the story), Yoshitatsu is our twin, and Princess Noh is our half-sister which makes Nobunaga and Oichi our step-siblings?
Does this character change sex based on what you make your character?
This dude looks like your character if you look in the illustrations. He also changes to your character's current look if you happen to re-edit.
