Q1 Hida Goru hasn’t done much yet to attract notice. His family has been overly protective of him, to the point where he hasn’t received as many opportunities to display his full potential yet.

Q2 Hida Goru has been working primarily as a magistrate. He has repeatedly attempted to be transferred into a more martial position, but was repeatedly denied by the Crab.

Q3 Honour is not something that Hida Goru thinks a lot about, however he’s very interested in Glory. He doesn’t just want to prove that a small warrior can become great, he wants everyone to know it.

Q4 Yes. He’s married to Agasha Hitomi, sister to the Agasha Daimyo

Q5 Aside from occasional talks with Osano-wo (Grandpa to Goru), Goru doesn’t really pay much attention to the religion.

Q6 Hida Goru wants to lead an army of Dragon soldiers to defeat the Shadowland hordes, and prove that that when it comes to combat, he’s big enough.

Q7 I see Hida Goru as a famous warrior who has gained fame for his personal defeat of enemy leaders.

His two important NPCs are Agasha Hitomi (his wife), and Hida Taichi (his teacher). I’ll post more about them later.
