Prince Tsuruichi was the son of Lord Mifune and Lady Kazumi. He was an anthropomorphic tiger.

Character HistoryEdit

Prince Tsuruichi was the heir of Lord Mifune. As such, he was targeted for death by Lord Hikiji, who sent assassins to kill Lord Mifune, Lady Kazumi and their child. Lord Mifune survived the assassination attempt with the help of Miyamoto Usagi and Gunichi, but both Prince Tsuruichi and his mother were slain. As a result, Lord Mifune declared war on Lord Hikiji, which led to the Battle of Adachigahara.
