The eldest son and heir of Hida Kisada, Hida Yakamo is well-known as a boorish, violent scrapper. He’s spent most of his life on the Wall, and his manners show it. However, he is a more than capable warrior and a surprisingly cunning man both on and off the battlefield. Yakamo is at the heart of one of the more famous feuds in the Empire. Some years ago, he killed Mirumoto Satsu, the older brother of Mirumoto Hitomi, in a duel. Hitomi has sworn her revenge, and has put off becoming the Daimyo of her family until she can secure it by humiliating and killing Yakamo. The Crab is uninterested in the feud, and has said publicly that the anger of a prissy little koma couldn’t matter less to him. This has only served to fuel Hitomi’s rage.
The PCs briefly met Yakamo during their mission for Togashi Yokuni. It was he that permitted them to investigate the happenings at Shiro Kuni.
Yakamo is available as an ally to Crab and Unicorn PCs. He has an influence of 3 and a devotion of up to 2.
