Serpent of the East

Leader of a large pirate fleet


Head of the Orochi pirates, with a fleet of approximately 100 ships.

In the spring of 1173, she revealed herself as Yoritomo Hanako to a group of bushi sent to investigate her.

In the Winter Court of 1173, her identity as Hanako was confirmed during her trial.


The Serpent of the East rules over the Serpent’s Maw, and commands the Orochi pirates. Her followers act with some degree of honour, refusing to betray her when captured. Some say she was once Yoritomo.

Rumor has it she assisted Moshi Kikiyo in the murder of Kakita Masumune, and in the burning of the Kenshinzen dojo.
