Character Directory Edit
Entry 1 Edit
Unlock: To unlock, complete the mission "????".Kuroda Nagamasa, sometimes known as "Kichibei", was a general under the Toyotomi clan. The son of Kuroda Kanbei, Nagamasa was entrusted to Hideyoshi as a child hostage. When Kanbei was captured by enemy forces, however, Oda Nobunaga suspected him of treachery and ordered Nagamasa killed. It was only quick thinking on the part of Takenaka Hanbei that saved him. After coming of age, Nagamasa made his name fighting alongside his father Hideyoshi at Shizugatake and during the conquest of Kyushu. As a leader on the front lines, his opinions often clash with those of Ishida Mitsunari, who provided support from the rear. Since he also believes that his father's removal from the centre of power was due to slander by Mitsunari, he bears a grudge against him.
Entry 2 Edit
Unlock: To unlock, complete the mission "????".Nagamasa is a good person who wears his heart on his sleeve, and gets along well with new people. He does have some of his father's political genius, being involved in the plotting of the Mohri clan, but he prefers to face his enemies face-to-face like a warrior. He is driven by a constant, urgent desire to live up to the expectations of his father and earn his approval through great deeds.
Entry 3 Edit
Unlock: To unlock, complete the mission Kuroda's Determination.At the Battle of Sekigahara, Nagamasa wore an unusual "Ichinotani" hemlet instead of his usual horned design. "Ichinotani" refers to the battlefield of yore when Minamoto no Yoshitsune's surprise attack defeated the Heike. Nagamasa's helmet evoked it with a striking design in a prayer for victory. It was said to have been designed by Takenaka Hanbei, the man who saved Nagamasa's life, and Nagamasa apparently wore it to symbolise his vow to Takenaka that he would be victorious.
Entry 4 Edit
Unlock: To unlock, complete the mission "????".Nagamasa and Mitsunari were at odds for a long time, but when Mitsunari lost and was captured after the Battle of Sekigahara, Nagamasa had no words of abuse or contempt for him. When Mitsunari was sentenced to death, Nagamasa is said to have recognised the man's depth of feeling and acceptance of his fate, placing his own coat on Mitsunari's shoulders as a gesture from one warrior to another. Nagamasa himself was granted a vast fiefdom by Tokugawa leyasu for his unparalleled service at the Battle of Sekigahara—he had finally lived up to his father's expectations.
