Kanbei Kuroda

黒田官兵衛, Kanbei the Great

Former member of Hideyoshi's Forces. Was driven away south by Ishida Mitsunari after his plans to take over Japan by himself were discovered. He is attempting to use the turmoil spreading across Japan to take over, but is constantly outwitted by Motonari and Yoshitsugu. He appears as a prisoner whose hands have been locked and cuffed with a ball and chain, which he also uses as his weapon. His alternate story paths focus on hunting down an eagle which had stolen the key needed to free his bound arms.
