Sanjuro Tatsuya is the son of the late Sanjuro, and the lord of the mongoose Clan, Sanjuro Hinata. Tatsuya has no memory of his father, as he was born after Sanjuro’s death.

Shortly after the clan wars began Sanjuro Hinata knew that the fledgling Mongoose clan would need protection from any major clans simply walking in and taking over. The Dragon clan was close enough to them, and more than willing to help out smaller clans, so Hinata decided to go to them.

The Dragon sent a well respected courtier to the village of Toshiro, the capitol of the Mongoose lands, and Hinatas home. He would be considered under the protection of Sanjuro Hinata. Discussions would soon begin on what would be done to form an alliance with the two clans. However, on the first night, the courtier would be murdered in his sleep.

The death of this courtier incenced his wife, Mirumoto Fumiko, a regional daimyo, who wanted Hinata and some of the other Mongoose to pay in blood. Fortunately, a more level headed member of the Dragon talked her into something far less severe, she demanded a hostage. She called on Hinata to bring her recently born child, Tatsuya to her. Hinata had no choice, she needed the alliance to protect her people, and the death of the courtier was truly on her head. She handed over her son as a hostage.

Fumiko had Tatsuya live with her so that if the Mongoose mess up in any way, she could kill him personally. While as a hostage, Tatsuya was treated well. However, Fumiko despised Tatsuya, she verbally abused him quite a lot. Fumiko did however, ensure Tatsuya got a good education, and training at the Mirumoto bushi school.

Twenty some years later, Tatsuya is still a hostage, and he is still under the care of Mirumoto Fumiko. however, her feelings have softened over the years. Not only does she treat Tatsuya much better, but she actually treats him like one of her own children. Infact, she treats him a little better than her own children, which has created some tension between Tatsuya and Fumiko’s other children.

Tatsuya knows nothing but a life in the Dragon Clan, he knows his true lineage and knows he is a hostage, but has accepted his life as it is, and considers himself Dragon.
