MY LEGEND: //[/color] en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minamoto_no_Yoshitsune
MY HISTORY: //[/color] Yoshitsune Minamoto is the son to Yoshitomo Minamoto, and the younger brother to Yoritomo Minamoto. Yoshitsune is the son to Yoshitomo, who had supported the Taira during the Hôgen Disturbance (1156). Yoshitomo’s own father was put to death as a result of the incident, as well as eleven other of his relatives. In 1159 Yoshitomo himself attempted to defy the Taira but failed. The following year he was assassinated; his wife and children were later found and brought to Taira Kiyomori, who spared them. Yoritomo, the second eldest, was sent off to Izu while Yoshitsune was sent to a temple on Kuramayama, north of Kyoto. He was later either transferred or fled to Mutsu, where he was given shelter by the govenor of that province, Fujiwara Hidehira (? -1187). Precious little else is know for certain about Yoshitsune's youth, although later storytellers filled in the gaps with a series of adventures, one of which had Yoshtisune slipping away from the monastary to be trained in the arts of swordsmanship by the mythical tengu.
In 1180, Yoshitsune heard that Yoritomo, now head of the Minamoto clan, had raised an army at the request of Prince Mochihito to fight against the Taira clan (also known as the Heike) which had usurped the power of the emperor. Yoshitsune shortly thereafter joined Yoritomo, along with Minamoto no Noriyori, all brothers who had never before met, in the last of three conflicts between the rival Minamoto and Taira samurai clans, known as the Genpei War.
Yoshitsune defeated and killed his rival cousin Minamoto no Yoshinaka at the Battle of Awazu in Ōmi Province in the first month of 1184 and in the next month defeated the Taira at the Battle of Ichi-no-Tani in present day Kobe. In 1185, Yoshitsune defeated the Taira again at the Battle of Yashima in Shikoku and destroyed them at the Battle of Dan-no-ura in present day Yamaguchi Prefecture.
With Yoshinaka out of the way, Yoritomo secured the support of Go-Shirakawa and a mandate to press the war with the Taira. On 13 March Yoshitsune and Noriyori were given permission to set out for the Western provinces and moved into Settsu, the eastern doorway to the Setô Inland Sea. Yoshitsune’s first objective was the Taira outpost at Ichi no Tani, a well-positioned fortification that was covered from the rear by a steep incline. This was where the Taira had fled following their retreat from Kyoto and could be used as a staging area for any future attempts to return to the capital.
He had then tried to make sure that he was going to do what was possible for him to fight next arm to arm with Benkei he had made sure that he was going to do what he had needed to do about his entire lifetime. He had fought a lot against the other clans. He had even made friends with Minzuru, and Gozen Shizuka. He had been making sure that he had done what was possible to keep people safe, and sound.
He had fought next side to Benkei for many years, and then he had finally been married. His wife had a daughter. After the Gempei War, Yoshitsune joined the cloistered Emperor Go-Shirakawa against his brother Yoritomo. Fleeing to the temporary protection of Fujiwara no Hidehira in Mutsu again, Yoshitsune was betrayed, defeated at the Battle of Koromo River, and forced to commit seppuku along with his wife and daughter, by Hidehira's son Fujiwara no Yasuhira. Yoshitsune is enshrined in the Shinto shrine Shirahata Jinja in Fujisawa.
Now he was summoned, and he was put into the assassin class. He had no idea of how he even gotten here in this time period, but he had ulterior motives of himself. Yoshitsune had been trying to find his old friend, and he had wanted to meet up with his friend once again. He had still had his double swords, and he was still graceful on his feet. Yoshitsune had been trying to make sure that he had been fighting against all the other servants, but he hadn't made a contact with a master yet. Yoshitsune is a skillful swordsman, who had been training all his life. Of all things he had ever done he had always wanted to make sure that he was going to do a lot more fighting.
