Chu was a carpenter and a Bloodspeaker.
Chu was a muscular heavy-set man with a drum-like belly wholived in Tenraku village. He worked with his apprentice Majime in a water-wheeled mill in Koujou village. The mill was looked after by an old peasant woman named Chio, and his grandson Higaisha often helped maintain it. 
Bloodspeaker Cell Edit
Chu had a life-long resentment against the samurai caste since his childhood sweetheart was sold off to a geisha house because her family could not afford to pay their Imperial taxes. He willingly joined a Bloodspeaker cell led by Asai, and a monk based in Yasurugi Monastery. They slaughter a family in his won village, kidnapped Hana the geisha in Jouzousho village, and also Shidou, the headman of the nearby village of Aian, with his wife and daughter. Miya Kuboti, Nigai the laborer, Yuri from the sake works, and Bondo the doshin, were the other cultists involved in the attack. The blacksmithy worker named Kou was murdered by the Bloodspeakers on the same night. 
The most powerful maho-tsukai in the cult was Chio, who seized control of the cell. She stole from Asai the obsidian amulet, embarking the cultists on a parade of blood sacrifices, intended to enhance the power of the amulet. The crimes eventually escalated and began to affect the samurai of the sample cluster of ten small villages located near the monastery. A group of samurai sent by the Governor Miya Ansho discovered and destroyed the cultists.
