Young Chikara

Chikara was the son of Seppun Oishi, but he left his name behind in shame when Toturi I died in 1158, and became a ronin. [2]

Oishi's death Edit

Chikara travelled with him, until Oishi died in 1173 at Taiki Mura during the Destroyer War. During his last moments on the battlefield he apologized to his son for passing along his shame and then gave him his blade as his last action. His father's commanding officer, Kakita Sadaka, then offered him protection. [3] Sadaka presented him as his hatamoto, as a way to encourage a boy that had lost his father shortly before. [4]
