420 years after the fall of Ozai, decades of tranquility have brought about an era where peace is no longer only a mere philosophical abstraction. However beyond the grasp of the Four Nations, a long lost legacy resurfaces.

Crown Prince
Sei-i Taishogun of Nippon

"Fate is in heaven, armor is on the chest, accomplishment is in the feet.
Always fight with your opponent in the palm of your hand, and you won't get wounded.
If you fight willing to die, you'll survive.
If you fight trying to survive, you'll die.
If you think you'll never go home again, you will.
If you hope to make it back, you won't.
While it is not incorrect to consider the world uncertain, as a warrior one should not think of it as uncertain but as totally certain."

Nobutada stood in his private quarters just outside the Yari Drill Yard. The Yari (spear) soldiers were practicing their spear drills and formations and strategies.

All Nobutada could worry about though was his brother's replacement. Two months ago his brother, former General Fujiwara no Nobushige, had been discharged, honourably, from the army after a two year tour of Nippon.

He had been returned home to rule Yamagata Province from Ember Island.

The two brothers had made great headway in Nippon these past two years. They had been an unstoppable team on the battlefield.

And now, his brother was being replaced.

Some General Timbly.

He sounded colonial, he sounded old, and he sounded uptight and annoying.

Nobutada already knew he'd have to chase this General away, or demote him within a month. He was going to have to fight to be heard by this stuck up, arrogant old man.

Nobutada gritted his teeth.

His jaw tightened.

He was already annoyed just thinking about it.

He checked the spinning of mass of gears and dials that was the clock on the wall. The general was due in a few minutes.

He'd best not be late. Nobutada's patience was thin as it was.

Corrina trekked across the drill yard. It was her first time on the island. Nippon was a strange place. It had that same Fire Nation, no, wait, Sun Empire vibe to it, but it was definitely unique in its own way. There was a distinct culture here, one that she knew she'd have to learn about if she would be spending an extended period of time on the island.

She tugged at her new uniform. It didn't feel quite right. It was weird, having the title of General. She'd received the letter informing her of her promotion a few weeks previous. That very same letter also informed her of her relocation to the island of Nippon.

She'd landed on the island the previous day, having found decent housing for her brother. Connor didn't mind the move too much. He'd grown accustomed to moving from place to place ever since Corrina assumed custody over him after...

Corrina shook her head. Now was no time for such thoughts. She was to meet her new boss, and while she was familiar with speaking to people of higher rank and working with different commanders, the man she was going to meet was different. He was the Crown Prince, Nobutada. And he had a reputation that far preceded him.

Crown Prince Nobutada. Being in the military, it was impossible to avoid talk of the prince who fought and conquered everywhere he went. Of course, Corrina knew that not all the tales were true, and that every story was a bit...exaggerated. But she did know one thing: Nobutada was somebody you did not want to piss off.

She stopped in front of the tent she was told to wait in. A council tent, where she would later participate in various strategic discussions. It was a war tent. Corrina looked around one last time, looking at the men training with their spears. She glanced at her own spear, fastened to her back. Subconsciously, her right hand began tracing spirals on her thigh.

One of the guards at the tent entrance looked at her questioningly, but chose not to say anything, recognizing the authority she held from her uniform. Taking one last deep breath, Corrina opened the tent flap.

-------------------------------------------------------------

The tent flap moved.  Nobutada sighed a sharp exhale of breath.

"General Timbly, I presume?" he started, his back to the General, "I was beginning to think you weren't coming.  I don't know how they do things in your colony, but in the military fashion is superfluous, and fashionably late is use--"

Nobutada turned around and was faced, not with a wrinkly, stuck-up old man from the colonies trying to play politics, but a well armoured, and armed, young woman.  Buxom.  Quite a looker too.  With red hair like the blood Nobutada had seen spill from the innocents in the streets of towns and villages in rural Nippon during a demon attack.

"I...you..." started Nobutada.

God you look like an idiot.  He thought to himself.  Tighten your jaw and remain the dignified prince you are.  Father would never approve of your gaping hole of a mouth, you halfwit.

"Apologies, General Timbly," continued Nobutada, "Please, sit down. Tea? Food? I can have my attendants bring anything you require."

Nobutada shuffled over to his desk and searched through the piles of reports and logistics to find Corrina's transfer.

Shit.

Female. Right there under sex. How the hell did he miss that?

"It says you transferred in from the mainland. The base on Yashima. How is Admiral Furokawa? How was your trip?"

Corrina crossed her arms. She could already tell she wasn't going to like this prince.

He was rude, with a huge holier-than-thou attitude. Corrina was a farm girl from a small village. Obviously, he'd read up on her, and was treating her like her former station would have permitted, rather than her current one.

However, she couldn't resist smirking at his reaction. It wasn't the first time she'd been mistaken for a man, and she was confident it wouldn't be the last. Her arms remained crossed, and she watched in amusement as the prince tried to collect his thoughts.

Her smirk faded as he tried to be polite. Not this again...

"Look," she interrupted, "I appreciate the effort, but I'm not some high-class lady. I am a soldier just like everyone else here. I do not expect any special treatment just because of my sex, sir. I trust you would feel the same way with your royal status? Or do you enjoy having people treat you like a prince instead of a military leader?"

Corrina fell silent, letting him think. Was she making a poor first impression in front of a prince? Perhaps. But she didn't get as far as she did by being pampered and waited on. She fought hard for her position, and she intended to be treated like it.

"Admiral Furokawa is fine, finally recovering from a nasty flu that left him bedridden for a few days. And as for my journey, it was fine, I suppose. I arrived on the island yesterday with my younger brother and spent the last day helping him get settled in his new apartment and learning his way around town. I apologize for being so late, and I assure you it won't happen again."

Corrina had to remember that he was her superior, and a prince to boot. She had to be more careful of what she said in the future.

Nobutada nodded. "I wasn't offering because you're a woman. I offered because it's what I do. It is polite." Nobutada's temper started to flare and he calmed himself.

He couldn't let this woman get the best of him. She assumed he had treated her nicely because of her gender...not because he was being friendly. Yes, her being a woman had thrown him off, but only because the gender had been put down wrong on the application for transfer, likely due to a clerical error on behalf of the pencil pushers in the capital.

"I am glad the Admiral is feeling better," Nobutada answered, turning back towards the map of Nippon, "I'm glad the lateness will not happen again. Because we'll be shipping out tomorrow. Tell me, is your brother capable of caring for himself for long periods of time, or will you be bringing him with us?"

Nobutada was serious, but not mean.

"We'll be going to reinforce the temple of Ankoku-ji," explained Nobutada, "My sister and many Shrine Maidens are being surrounded and attacked by demons there. We posted a small company of a hundred men there to defend them...the demons have near slaughtered them all. They dare not touch the sacred ground, but they grow brave."

"The Shrine Maidens have done their best to combat the demons but...well, time is of the essence. When can you be ready to leave?"

Nobutada placed his hand on his blade and shouldered his rifle. He turned to Corrina with a serious look in his eye. "We cannot let Ankoku-ji fall, General Timbly. The Shrine Maidens are allies...and the holy ground is a good resting place on the path to the east. We'll need it for the grand march!"
