- "I respectfully submit that in this land of barbarians, a native on the presence of our council would endear us to the hearts and minds of the people, thereby softening our conquest. Of course, I would not dare suggest someone not Yamatian by bloodline as well, therefore I nominate Ofuchi Hideyoshi, one of the Ryuugumi people who remained behind when the bulk of our people sailed for our blessed islands. Ofuchi-san is descended by blood from Ofuchi Taro, from whom our blessed Emperor also claimed descent prior to the rise of our liege lord the Shogun."
- —Shingen Akechi to the Council of Regents
Shingen Akechi was a member of the Council of Regents in Remonton during the Great War. He was a member of a coup which included lords Misamoto Toranaga and Hideyoshi Ofuchi whose purpose was to install Ofuchi as the tairo of the council and promote the cause of the sonno-joi. He was captured in the First Battle of Remonton but was later freed in the aftermath of the Cataclysm. Akechi and Toranaga showed up a decade later in the Battle of Hephaisteion where they and their followers assisted the Resistance against the Southern Horde.
