It is said that no one in Japan is unaware of this tragic general’s name.
She was born with genius talent and impressive charisma, yet resented by her older brother Yoritomo, and ultimately killed by her retainers such as Benkei.
Ushiwakamaru is the childhood name of Minamoto no Yoshitsune.

It would be no exaggeration to call Ushiwakamaru (Minamoto no Yoshitsune) Japan’s most famous general.
Her fame is likely on par with that of Oda Nobunaga.
…However, many of her historical details are vague, and her life before she led an army is particularly shrouded in mystery.
Bond Level 3
Tengu Warfare: A
A personal skill, stemming from legends of her learning the arts of war from the inhuman Tengu.
Bonuses are granted to close combat abilities such as swordsmanship, archery, and spearsmanship, as well as other skills such as Military Tactics and Magic Resistance.
Bond Level 4
At the age of 11, Ushiwakamaru, who was in the care of the Kurama Temple, met the Onmyou priest Ki’ichi Hougen (one account describes him as the Kurama Tengu), and learned the arts of war from him.
None could doubt that Yoshitsune was an excellent warrior, but she lacked something crucial.
Bond Level 5
Namely, fear of the battlefield. Throughout her entire life, she never could see eye to eye with other generals.
Yoshitsune probably never grasped the reason Yoritomo was so murderous towards her.
After all, the genius had no fear of her own talents.
