Hakyuu Houshin Engi – Taikoubou Franchise / Lore Information:
Taikoubou is cheerful and friendly to all people, but is also cunning and mischievous with a light-hearted personality. He’s lazy and often tries to find the easiest way to end things without anyone getting hurt. And if circumstances make it so that someone is inevitably hurt or injured, he would have preferred that the person be himself. He’s very loyal and values his friends and family above all else.
He’s very kind, and often makes decisions based on his heart and emotions than logic; such is the case with the Two Princes of the Yin. He regrets any action he takes when it results in people being hurt or killed, but he also understands that such losses cannot be avoided.
He loves eating peaches, and often prefers to use the special peaches to make him drunk in order to end a fight.
He values the simple things in life; eat (peaches), sleep, and (due to his childhood upbringing) sheep as well. Above those priorities though, he values friends and family.
Lastly, Taikoubou is also very sensitive and conservative. He never burdens his friends with his own worries or pain. He prefers to cry on his own undisturbed and doesn’t showcase his grief (from losing people) outwardly. He doesn’t ‘bury’ the pain exactly, but he prefers to keep it under wraps.
Above all else, Taikoubou is strong at heart. He can get disappointing, and hurt, but he always makes the best of whatever situation he finds himself in and strive to make things better. He has a fighter’s spirit; if not in body, in the heart.
Before starting his training as a Doushi, Taikoubou (known as Ryobou at the time) lived in a Kyou village and was the son of the village’s chief. When he was 12 years old, the Empress, Ou Shi, decided that the Emperor needed to be buried with a thousand times the normal amount. So the people wouldn’t revolt, she ordered soldiers to captured people from other tribes as slaves, that way no one would care. Most of these were Kyou and almost everyone, including Taikoubou’s family, were captured or killed. Afterwards, the leader of Kun Lun, Genshitenson, approached him and offered to train him to become a Sennin. Taikoubou accepted, wanting to acquire the power to fight against oppressors like the Empress so others wouldn’t have to suffer, and began his training immediately.
