The sacred birds, the houou, nest at Terayama and a fabled creature, the kirin, has appeared on their shores. Heaven seems to smile on them. Yet their very success has attracted the attention of the distant Emperor and his general, the warlord Saga Hideki, who covets all the wealth of the Three Countries, especially Takeo's heir, his eldest daughter, Shigeko, now of marriageable age.
