This is a Genjin (Japanese-themed) name. The surname is "Toyotomi."

Toyotomi Sugako (豊臣 須賀子), also known by her royal style name: Yoake-no-miya Sugako Naishinno (夜明け宮須賀子内親王/Sugako, Princess Yoake), is the eldest Imperial Princess of the Empire of Yamatai and the Fuso-born lunaculus of Marlakcor.

Her Grand Title is: Soshi-no-Teikoku Sumeragi-hime (素子の帝国皇姫/Imperial Princess of the Elements).

Sugako is also known by the nickname "Akatatsu Samurai (赤竜侍)", a sobriquet earned for her performance in a sudden battle during the Siege of Garvis of the Great Northern Aquilonis War.

During her time traveling following the war, she would sometimes use the cover name Toyotomi Chiyuki (豊臣 地湯き), which she also often used during her childhood when she snuck out of the palace for some fun.

She is also a kunoichi (a female ninja) of the Akatsuki Ninja Order, currently with the rank of chunin.

Appearance

Physical

Sugako is an average human girl. She has a fair complexion and waist length black hair that she lets down most of the time, but puts it up in a ponytail before she goes off to fighting. After her father's funeral she cuts her hair short, both as a sign of maturity and as a sign of moving on.

Known Clothing

As Princess of Yamatai, she normally wears kimonos of various designs, all of which have the imperial family crest on them.

Her kunoichi attire consists of a black body suit with chest and wrist guards and shoulder pads.

When commanding armies in open battles, she would wear full samurai armor over her kunoichi attire.

During her brief stay in Arabia in late 4541 (2824), Sugako wore a green Arabian dress gifted to her by Salim Al-Zayani, a tube-top with detached sleeves and pantaloons with slippers. Salim also gifted her with a necklace made of mostly with round beads and several magatama between them (around every six), and a dragon pendant. Save for the string, it is made entirely of fire red glass.

Salim also later gifted her with an antique gold ring with an opal that is mostly black with mixes of red, blue, green, and gold; the thick band also has writing etched on it in Ashkhas script, which says "Every beginning is and end, and every end is a beginning."

During her journeys after the Great Northern Aquilonis War, Sugako often wore a black bandana over her eyes to obscure them and give the appearance she was blind, mainly to hide her identity. She also did this during her childhood as well when she snuck out of the palace for some fun.

Personality

In her younger years, Sugako was a shy and timid girl. Due to a bad experience involving dragons and fire, she was afraid of both for a long time. After conquering her fear, thanks to Ran-Shao, Sugako became a more confident and courageous individual.

However, her newfound courage and her top-notch skills led her to become a tomboy, almost rejecting anything that defined an elegant lady of royalty, holding onto the notion of femininity only so as not to embarrass her family (and also to impress a man she had a crush on). She also became arrogant and impatient, and became quick to turn hostile to anybody she perceived a threat. She also constantly let her temper get the better of her, and didn't take kindly to betrayal. The only times she was able to swallow her pride was when she knew that to act in haste would put everyone in danger.

After the Incident at Mount St. Fleur, Sugako became moody, withdrawn, and despondent for a time. This due to her fear of losing herself again. But her sudden growing love for Salim Al-Zayani – whom she initially despised – along with her newfound spirituality led her to becoming a more patient and sensitive person.

Abilities

Having trained as both a ninja and samurai since conquering her fears, Sugako is a natural warrior, utilizing various combat martial arts that she's trained in all her life. Her overall fighting style is a series of techniques based on two styles. The first is referred to as Onami-ryu (大波流), which mostly revolves around striking first to disable her opponent before they can can get the upper hand. The second is referred to as Zankyo-ryu (残響流) which is the opposite of Onami-ryu and mostly revolves around turning her opponent's attacks back at them.

The disciplines that are her main specializations in her two fighting styles include ninjutsu and various taijutsuAikido, Jujutsu, Kenjutsu, etc.

Her repertoire also includes:

However, she hardly ever gets a chance to use most of her skills in combat. Her mother also attempted to each her fan combat – tessenjutsu – but Sugako rejected it as she believed it "too girlish."

Sugako is also a soshijosei, meaning that she can manipulate the elements around her. As a soshijosei, she is a near-master in soshijutsu. While most soshihito can only use one or two elements, Sugako is one of the extremely rare that can use all four, though this is probably due to her being a lunaculus. Along with kazejutsu, mizujutsu, tsuchijutsu, and kajijutsu, Sugako is also adept at the sub-techniques such as chiyujutsu and furujutsu. She can also do raikojutsu and taikajutsu, but doesn't like using it since she has trouble controlling it. During the Incident at Mount St. Fleur, Sugako discovered her ability to use yoganjutsu, and during her brief stay in Arabia in late-Autumn of 4541 Sugako learned to use sunajutsu while practicing on the dunes. Recently, Sugako as also been learning to use kinzokujutsu, but is so far a novice.

Her soshijutsu style is called the "Tora to Iruka (虎と海豚/Tiger & Dolphin)." It is a dance-like style that incorporates tiger-like fierceness with dolphin-like gracefulness.

Sugako is also sesquilingual; her first and primary language is Yogata, and her second is Zedylric, but she understands Faerish, the language of fairies, to a certain degree, but not enough to fully understand, let alone hold an actual conversation.

Also, during the Allied Occupation of Garvis in 4542 (2825), Sugako discovered her fluency in Gargate, the language of gargoyles, from the sudden resurgence of memories from one of her past lives.

Equipment & Skills

Seishitsu

Seishitsu

In addition to her abilities, Sugako also uses various tools. As a ninja, Sugako always keeps a set of kunai knives and shurikens, along with a pair of sai on her person.

Sugako is also an adept swordswoman. When she went off to war alongside her father, Sugako used a katana made of adamantite and granikimite, gifted to her by her fellow lunaculus, Ricus Steelfern, for her sixteenth birthday. This sword was broken during her confrontation with the traitor Shigekazu Osaragi during the Incident at Mount St. Fleur.

While briefly returning home from war in late-autumn 4541 (2824), Sugako came into possession of Seishitsu, the legendary Zedylrian Steel katana forged by her ancestor, Shintoki-tenno (personal name: Yoshishige (至鎮)), the first Tenno of Yamatai and the first to hold any authority since the assassination of Keiken no Hayashi-tenno (whom he was related to via the latter's great-grandfather, Keiken no Kurogane-tenno). When she retrieved it, Sugako became the first to use it since Fukurai-tenno (personal name: Chikayoshi, the great-grandson of Shintoki-tenno), seven centuries before.

Sugako is also a skilled archer, and is capable of accurately shooting a target from over 300 meters away, depending on the quality of the bow. However, Sugako is not every adept at the use of black powder weapons.

Sugako is also an accomplished dragon rider, and is the master of a Yamato Long-snout named Hitokage. Sugako was initially dead scared of dragons due to a traumatizing experience in her youth. But through the help of Ran-Shao, an ancient dragon originally hatched and raised by Shintoki-tenno, she conquered her fear and Hitokage has been her closest companion ever since.

History

Sugako was born in the Yamato imperial palace on Sanaetsuki 13, 2808IIO (Windoni 14, 4525AFZ), as the second child and first daughter of Tasuhiko and Reiko, the then tenno and kogo of Yamatai.

Friends & Allies

Ricus Steelfern Former Love Interest
A leprechaun fairy and the lunaculus of Alfheim.

Sugako was at one point in love with Ricus; before he and Sugako went off to war, he revealed that he was engaged to another, breaking Sugako's heart.

Sugako and Ricus didn't see each other again for more than a year until they reunited towards the end of the Siege of Garvis.

Al-Zayani clan
Salim ibn Rashid ibn Azhar Al-Zayani

Salim was the Crown Prince of Arabia, and the great-grandson of the former lunaculus of Aquilonis, Abdul Sahrawi, via his mother's side, before his death. He is also the father of Sugako's son, Akitoshi.

Salim was, at one point, Sugako's fiancé. Initially, Sugako hated Salim and only agreed to the engagement after Salim "blackmailed" the alliance by suggesting Arabia could ally with Umdar instead.

Salim's attitude and perspective changed when he saw Sugako stop a volcano during the Incident at Mount St. Fleur; and because of his change, even Sugako found herself falling in love with Salim during their time together during their brief spell in Arabia. They fully realized and consummated their feelings during the New Year's of 4542, becoming engaged for real.

Tragically, the union was not meant to be, as Salim was slain in a duel of champions during the Siege of Garvis, late in the Great Northern Aquilonis War. Shortly after the war, Sugako gave birth to the child they conceived during the campaign to capture Garvis.

Trivia

  • Even though Ichigo Kogo, Sugako's grandmother by her father side, was a member of the Yamato branch of the Order of Eden, Sugako never joined the order.
  • While Sugako was offered to join the Shoka Kunoichi (a women-only ninja order of Fuso), she chose the Akatsuki instead.
  • Even though she's categorized as one, Sugako is not actually Marlakcese. She's only considered one by default as the Lunaculus of Marlakcor.
  • Sugako is the first Fuso-born lunaculus in nearly a millennium.
  • One of Sugako many predecessors, Chiyexi (翅夜蜥) was born in Tianchao during the Central, Western & Northern Dynasties period as the lunaculus of Marlakcor, yet died in Aquilonis. She was visiting the Gargate Empire at the time the stone sleep curse was cast on the Garvis clan, hence why, during the Garvis campaign of the GNAW, Sugako had memories of being in Garvis despite not being an Aquiline lunaculus and having never set foot in Garvis even once before in her life.
  • The two birthdays/birth-years listed for Sugako and her family are the same date/year on two different calendars, the Teikoku Calendar and the Zedylric Calendar respectively.
  • Sugako's Grand Title is one of a long list of majestic titles referred to as a Migoto Shogo (見事称号). Such titles can be granted renowned individuals, people who have done extraordinary things; otherwise, Migoto Shogo are a customarily reserved for members of the imperial family, given to them when they come of age (Note: this is not a real Japanese custom, and, in-universe, children of Fuso culture come of age at sixteen).
    • If she were a boy, her title would be: Imperial Prince of the Elements (素子の帝国諸侯/Soshi-no-Teikoku Shoko)
  • Sugako is a Japanese name built with three kanji meaning "Mandatory, Congratulate, & Child". Toyotomi is a common Japanese surname mostly associated with the Toyotomi clan.
    • Her Royal Style name, Yoake – which means "dawn/daybreak" in Japanese – is based on a Japanese custom specific to the imperial family: The Imperial Family of Japan has no surname. Instead they are given a standard given name and a special title.
      • Sugako, like the rest of the Imperial Family, is commonly addressed by her royal style name; only her family and most intimate friends are allowed to call her by her given name, and their clan surname is never used unless they give up their royal status or it is otherwise revoked.
        • That said, Sugako herself dropped her royal style and began using her clan name, and occasionally a cover name, during her travels following the Great Northern Aquilonis War. She never actually gave up her royal status, nor was it ever actually revoked.
    • The addition of her title that follows her personal name, Naishinno (内親王), is another version of Kojo (皇女), an honorific denoting an imperial princess, the daughter of the tenno or an imperial prince; the male variants being Shinno (親王)/Koshi (皇子).
      • The title that follows her royal style name, no-miya (宮), is a gender-neutral royal particle that denotes a member of the imperial family.
    • Her nickname literally translates as "Red Dragon Samurai".
  • Her dragon's name, Hitokage, spelled "火蜥蜴" in kanji, means "Fire lizard/Salamander" in Japanese.
