Back when he was born the area was known as Musashi province. – Source: YST Encyclopedia aka Daijiten
Tokyo is located in this area.
Jirougorou was born into a samurai family that inherited the lineage of the seven Musashi clans that were active during the Kamakura and Nanboku dynasties. (The time between 1185 AD –1392 AD.) However, at the time of Jirougorou ‘s birth, his family was only a vassal1 of a large lord. With youthful ambition in his heart, he left his family and threw himself into battle. After suffering many setbacks and enduring days of humiliation, Jirougorou formed an assassination squad with friends he had met on the battlefield and set out to kill a famous warlord in a game of chance. In this moment, he was attracted to Talpa/Arago and was drawn into the world of the Youja when he wanted to be successful in assassination. It is no exaggeration to say that his character, symbolized by “Endurance,” was nurtured by these days of suffering. He is a cautious character who quietly and secretly pursues his goals with tenacity, but his warrior heritage has given him a samurai spirit that keeps him fighting for what he believes in.
- A vassal is a person regarded as having a mutual obligation to a lord or monarch. Think similar to the feudal system in medieval Europe. The obligations often included military support by knights in exchange for certain privileges, usually including land held as a tenant or someone who held onto an estate of land, especially one held on condition of feudal service.
