How Rokurou joined the Tourney
A Daemon similar to Velvet who managed to maintain his sense of reason and his human form. He aims to defeat his stronger elder brother in the ways of the sword. He joins Velvet in escaping Titania and continues on her journey to repay his debt to her for helping him find his sword.
Having received an invitation to the second Tourney courtesy of his brother Shigure, Rokurou aims to hopefully find a worthy match for his sword. Suddenly, a Mongolian named Hsu Hao is ordered to assassinate him and Shigure.
