Nakano resides in the mountains of Suruga Province.
At the age of 59 Mako Nakano was the spiritual advisor of Yoshina Tamagachi an up and coming warlord. Nakano was praised for his wisdom and knowledge. During his 59th year he began to notice changes. Fires would roar up when he walked by and water would swirl violently. One night he went to sleep and woke up in the next village to the north.
Nakano kept these happenings to himself for fear he would cast as demon and killed or exiled. Over the next few months the bizarre happenings started to wane and he thought he might be putting it all behind him. Then the unthinkable happened.
On a warm spring day Nakano was going over battle strategies with Tamagachi’s son, Masahari. The argument started to heated between the two when fire in the hearth suddenly leapt to life and engulfed Masahari killing him almost instantly. Nakano fled from his home being chased by Tamagachi’s soldiers. Nakano fled into the hills and managed to lose his pursuers. For days Nakano hid in the hills but the soldiers kept looking for him.
Two weeks later Nakano came to top of the largest hill and saw the city that was Tamagachi’s power seat in flames. Inadvertently Nakano had cost Tamagachi his son’s life and his small empire. There came to be a new ruler to the area, Hamataki Yoshiba.
Still fearful of his life Nakano stayed in the hills and eventually one night found the entrance to a small cave. In his exhaustion upon entering he collapsed and fell into a deep sleep. When he awoke the midday sun illuminated the cave enough for him to see what lied therein.
The first thing he saw was a funeral stand with skeletal remains on it. The skeleton was wearing ornamental robes, a ring of immense beauty and a weathered staff. Clutched in one hand was a piece of parchment with writing on it. The note read as follows:
“Ancient Nakano if you are reading this then my destiny to be your steward has been fulfilled. On me you will find the Ring of Eternity and the Staff of the Forgotten Emperor. They have been waiting for you for a long time. They are rightfully yours. With them you are destined for great things. Have no fear Kai and Tosu will guide you well. Farewell my friend Sako Miagi”
Nakano reluctantly removed the ring and staff and put the ring on. A strange sensation flowed through him instantly and he seemed to hear whispered voices coming from everywhere. Eventually the sensation became too much for him and Nakano passed out on the cave floor.
