Personality Edit

He liked to chase down a lost or obscure fact as tutor as well as investigator. His search for the truth often led him into conflict with Bushido - The Way of the Warrior.

Fashion was not important to Sano but in order to represent his status he was obligated to wear whatever was in style at the moment.

Biography Edit

Early Life Edit

Before becoming a yoriki Sano worked as a tutor and history scholar. He lived together with his parents and one maid near the dojo of his father. He came to the post as Yoriki through his benefactor Shundai Katsuragawa.

Shinjū Edit

His new post as yoriki did not satisfy Sano very much as it was mainly paper-work with no challenge. He feared to become like his colleges and idle person taking of the afternoons to enjoy life instead of working. Also he is not included in their camaraderie as he is new while all other have inherited their posts.

When he was assigned to handle the shinju of a noble woman - Yukiko Niu - and a commoner by Magistrate Ogyu he decided to trust his instincts rather then follow the orders given by the Magistrate.

Upon going to Edo Jail to find out more he met Genboku Ito, a former imperial physician now confined to Edo Jail for studying foreign sciences. Together they discovered that at least the commoner Noriyoshi was already dead before his body was deposited in the river Sumida.
