Concerns the aftermath of the Battle of the Platte, specifically the fate of Minotsuna Tano, a leading warlord in the army of Nobunaga-Gaisen (he was also known as Nobunaga the Younger). The bloodletting at that Battle was truly horrific. Ironically, the Urushiol would later find themselves allied with former enemies during the fighting known as The Madness. After years of wandering Tano settled here and formed what some called the university without people. He crafted them out of the things he found here. The word Nozoimi means "hope" in the Nipponic Dialect.
