Naotora Takeda (
Naotora is a tall, muscular man with short, spiky blue hair and golden eyes. He has a scar on his left side of his chin and probably may others on his body due to the constant fighting.
He wears a light blue armor, which looks like a traditional samurai armor, with a white cape on that.
He is a very charismatic man which is easily able to bring people over to his side with his sense of honor and care for the people of Hi no Moto. He also has a rather mischievous side, often taking any chance he can to play small jokes on Musashi.
Unlike other Bushi he does not seem rooted in tradition, deciding that Uesugi was a bit too strict when it came to blood relation among Bushi. Likewise he does not revere the Obsidian Goddess as a necessary entity and likens her more to a person the world could do without, the reason for this was not explained properly yet.
Little is known about his past, however it was stated he knew the other four great generals as all five of them were friends in childhood.
The specifics are unknown, but he has stated to have met Shiro Inukai around 10 years ago, recognizing his sword more than Shiro himself.
Blue Sword Soul: He possesses one of the most common soul colors, blue. He is able to unleash a multitude of strikes in a single swing, producing many more than a basic blue bushi such as Kojiro.
- He is most likely a reference to Shingen Takeda and his descendant given the structure of Orient's story. Fittingly he also has many tiger motif's as a reference to Shingen Takeda's nickname.
