Takahiro is Mamoru’s father and damiyo of the northern Scorpion lands. His enemies describe him as cautious, crafty, cunning, ruthless, and unrelenting while his friends and family describe him as loyal, intelligent, strict-yet-loving, and an all around good man; but both sides have a healthy respect for him. It is known of Takahiro that everything he does has a purpose behind it whether it may be obvious or not; he is not a man of wasted words or effort.

He has managed to keep the Lion Clan from infiltrating Scorpion lands by his scheming, deceptions, and distractions. Takahiro has also been responsible for monitoring the whereabouts of the Kolat and is also monitoring the status of the spirit armies that have been amassing. Takahiro has also been known to be oddly interested in the affairs of the Mongoose Clan especially concerning a relative of his by the name of Sanjuro Tatsuya though no one knows why.
