Nagahide was the most successful shogun of Wa. He ruled over a pacified land using a subtle approach instead of resolving all issues with the sword like his grandfather, Matasuuri Shogoro. His ruling style was all analysis and hidden control. He suffered from headaches and he brooded incessantly, however.
Nagahide was a cunning strategist, a brilliant general, and a spellbinding speaker. He was a patient, decisive, and utterly humorless individual. He believed his headaches were the gods' punishment for having thoughts not specifically pertaining to the welfare of the state. Nagahide was obsessed with order and showed no mercy to anyone.
