Uesugi Kagetora δΈŠζ‰ζ™―θ™Ž
The leader of the Meikai Uesugi Army and one of the central characters of Mirage of Blaze. The most powerful of the Yashashuu, he is affiliated with the war god Bishamonten.

Original Life

Born Hojo Ujihide in 1554, Kagetora was the seventh son of Hojo Ujiyasu.

In 1562, he was sent to Takeda Shingen as a hostage during the alliance between the Hojo and the Takeda clans, and given the name of Saburou. When Shingen invaded Suruga again and later surrounded Odawara castle in 1569, the alliance was broken and Saburou was returned to the Hojo.

At first he was adopted by Hojo Genan. When the shogun Ashikaga Yoshiteru mediated peace between the Hojo and the Uesugi, as part of the agreement between the clans, Hojo Saburou was sent to Uesugi Kenshin, who would later officially adopt him and name him Uesugi Kagetora.

Kagetora married the sister of Uesugi Kagekatsu, a daughter of Nagao Masakage.

Following Kenshin's untimely death in 1578, he went to war with Kagekatsu over the right to inherit the territory of Echigo. During the Battle of Otate, Kagekatsu's faction surrounded Kagetora and his forces at Samegao castle before burning it to the ground.

Kagetora was forced to commit suicide in 1579. He died at 26 years of age.
