Masakado was a tiger hengeyokai in Kozakura in 1358 DR.[1]


Masakado was always fascinated by humans and lived among them. He joined Jinchin and acted as his henchman and spy until he was discovered and destroyed.[1]


Masakado saw a reflection of himself in Jinchin and for this reason he was so loyal to him. He tried to act as a polite and well-mannered individual, but often his rage emerged. He had not yet decided whether to follow the path of humans or the path of beasts. At last, his conflict destroyed him.[1]


A natural shapechanger, Masakado could assume human, cat-man, or tiger aspects at will. Mostly, he acted like a cat, having all kind of abilities associated with felines.[1]
