I don't know about desires or whatever, I just want to help Shin fulfill his dream.

—To Gai Mou, the Raging Bull.

Ka Ryo Ten, also just Ten, (かりょうてん) is the Head Strategist of the Hi Shin Army and one of the best strategists in the state of Qin. She is an orphan and the last descendant of a large mountain tribe known as the Kyuumei that was destroyed in a war by Yo Tan Wa's faction. For this reason, she left the mountains and went to live in Kokuhi Village, a place where she met Shin and Ei Sei and became friends with them.


When first introduced, Ten is a little girl with blue eyes and short hair giving her a tomboyish appearance which was enough for Shin and others to mistake her for a boy. After the Sanyou campaign, she grows taller and her hair has grown longer, her overall appearance is more feminine in which even the Hi Shin Unit pointed out she's a girl to Shin (whom still believed her to be a boy). After the Coalition War, Ten's hair grew to shoulder length and she has become more well endowed.

In the beginning, Ten wears a poncho made out of a straw to hide her gender. Underneath this, she wears a tunic with a zigzag collar and a small curates of chainmail over her tunic to protect herself, She also wears bandages on her feet and legs. By the time Ten meets the Hi Shin Unit, she wears a straw yellow tunic with zigzag hemlines. She also wears two armbands with the same pattern and brown boots.

The only consistent appearance she maintains throughout the series are two strands of hair sticking out from the top of her head and her Kyuumei owl mask connected to her straw poncho.

When she joined the Hi Shin Unit, she received the soldier Den Kou as an aide, who is always seen next to her on the battlefield. As the Hi Shin Unit became a 5000-Man Unit, she then started wearing a cape.


Ten is a survival genius to have survived for so long in her childhood without relatives since she was orphaned at a young age of five. She is an incredibly inquisitive young woman armed with keen perceptive fit her due to her former rough lifestyle. She aspires to be a world-renowned strategist.

From living with the plains folk for such a long time, Ten doesn't really consider herself a mountain person anymore and does not think she would be able to fit in if she were ever able to find her relatives.


  1. To help Shin fulfill his dream.
  2. To achieve happiness with Shin.

Ka Ryo Ten is the Hi Shin Army's head strategist and has continually proven incredibly adept in this role. While training at the Strategist Academy, her skill as a strategist was said to be on par with Mou Ki, the top student at the academy (in tabletop simulations at least). Also alongside Mou Ten, she is one of only two people who received special strategist recognition from their teacher, Shou Hei Kun. She is also apparently very good at cooking and has extremely good eyesight, being able to make out the words on the Zhao army's flags while being positioned a number of miles away. 

Physical Abilities[]

Ten has limited martial prowess but does possess a blowgun she obtained from an assassin, Muta, allowing her to strike the enemy from a medium-range in an effective manner. She possesses little martial skill however in close quarters combat and hence usually distances herself from major conflict. During the battle, she is accompanied by her aide Den Kou, who informs her of ongoing developments on the battlefield. Outside of battle, she is also adept at treating injuries (mainly Shin's, though).


Ten has proven herself a bold strategist, entering the fray of battle at crucial times to help rally and reorganize forces, making her also a lynchpin in the Hi Shin Unit leadership, beyond her strategist role.

Tactical Abilities[]

Being trained by Shou Hei Kun in the academy, Ka Ryo Ten proves to be a very capable strategist with unorthodox tactics. The best example is shown during the battle of Koku You Hill. She acted as a diversion to distract Zhao forces, in order for a small unit led by En can cross the river without any resistance. She is also capable to guide the positioning of units, helping troops regroup, managing communications and logistics, and directing the battle. Because of that, she forms the center of the Hi Shin unit's headquarters which allows himself to lead from the front.
