Summary[edit | edit source]

As Ei Sei's coming of age ceremony is approaching, the struggle for power and political influence between him and Ryo Fui is reaching its climax. To trap the king into going out to war, Ryo Fui arranged a small scale Zhao invasion. In lack of generals to lead the defending army, Ryo Fui proposed that the king should lead it, just like he did in the Battle of Sai. However, prince Sei Kyou offered to lead the campaign himself.

Sei Kyou met the Zhao army in the city of Tonryuu and managed to repel it easily, but was betrayed by the city's ruler, Ho Kaku, and his own general, Ryuu, who were both working for Ryo Fui. The prince was imprisoned, and rumors were spread that he started another rebellion in Tonryuu. King Ei Sei, who did not believe the rumors, sent a subjugation army led by a newly appointed general Heki along with Shin and his newly formed 4000-man strong Hi Shin Unit and 1000-man Kyou Kai Unit, with a secret mission to save Sei Kyou.

The Heki Army managed to suppress the rebellion successfully, but Shin was too late to save Sei Kyou. Before he died, Sei Kyou asked Shin to protect his brother and his wife to lead the remnants of his faction, serving under the king.
