Tekinjo Yojairo was a samurai in Wa around 1357 DR.[1]


Yojairo was the son of Tekinjo Gasahan, one of the Three House daimyos, and for this, from around 1347 DR, he was appointed as military governor of the imperial residence at Rukimbaru, acting as liaison between the emperor and the shogun.

Around 1356 DR, he started a secret relationship with Kisha Yunoko, the emperor's concubine and the shogun's granddaughter.[1]


Tekinjo was a very efficient administrator. His service had shown him the true miseries of Wa's poor people and the hypocrisies of the shogunate. At first, he was disgusted by Yunoko's situation, but soon his sympathy for her blossomed into love.[1]
