Warning: The story takes place in a fictional land named Tohan, which is modeled after Japan. This story is not a historical fiction, although it draws heavily on Japanese history. I do not speak or read Japanese so my naming might not be perfect. On a final note, I will not be using Japanese honorifics such as san or sama out of sheer convienence.
