Unlock: To unlock, complete the mission "????".Torii Mototada, also known as "Hikoemon", was a general under the Tokugawa clan. An older leader who has known Ieyasu since the latter was a boy, his loyalty to his lord and earnest, undeceitful service was praised as the epitome of the Mikawa samurai ideal. His role in Tokugawa's army was to ride at the head of a unit accompanying Ieyasu himself. Mototada distringuished himself in both defensive and offensive actions against the Takeda clan and their allies, and when Ieyasu was later attacked from the rear by the Hojo clan, Mototada fought them off. He refused any reward, however, saying that such praise was only useful to those changing their loyalties. When Toyotomi Hideyoshi became Ieyasu's lord and offered him official recognition, Mototada rejected it again, revealing a side so loyal and stubborn as to be impractical.
