Emperor Shigure is the current ruler of the volatile Minkai Empire on the distant continent of Tian Xia. He is currently being held against his will at the family compound of the Higashiyama clan, just outside the capital city of Kasai. He was brought there in 4705 AR following his coronation, supposedly for his own protection.
Like all noble families of Tian Xia, Emperor Shigure can trace his family back an extraordinarily long way. He claims to be able to name all of his ancestors, going back 296 generations to the goddess Shizuru herself.
