WHAT DO YOU KNOW?!?!

Seriously, I am curious as to what interesting things Hinami managed to piece together!

Hina-chan!

*huggles*

Also SUPER-CURIOUS about what Hinami pieced together with her Otomo-network!

And also very keen to know what she will be doing after the game. Go to Merenae/Aqhaba? Go back to Rokugan? Stay on Kameyama Jima?

Thank you, for our scene with Juan. I actuallt learned a lot about Rokugani culture that I didn't know through that. And now we have a lovely courtier rivalry that could lead to an eventual deadly confrontation.

It was wonderful seeing Hinami struggle with the more progressive elements in the campaign.

What was your original intention with Hinami in relation to dealing with the gaijin? Was there anything that surprised you ad the game went on?

Just wondering what Hinami's plans are. Also, if her twin factored in at all or if she had other things planned with Hikari's involvement somehow.

HI - MI - TSU - DE - SU ...

haha nah, Hinami knows a bit of the important things happening but still she lacks the 'right' links to connect everything and understand the 'big' picture.

First she knows that Katarina is a bastard descendant of the Cornejos via Ricardo Cornejo, AKA Hantei IX, but she doesn't know that he is the Veiled Emperor. She knows that the Xantellados is a group that wanted to put someone with Hantei blood on the throne of Merenae and that Teodoro Cornejo was the main proponent of that idea.

She knows that Bellena, Edogawa, Zabieru and Saionji are active members of that group. She knows that Bellena became active in that group after visiting a church or temple and she also knows that the Almerias became involved in the coup after Edogawa spoke with Jose.

Hinami 'suspects' about Katarina's true lineage since she was a witness when Suru killed that gaijin that confused Jama with his father and called him 'Don Ricardo' and also because of Edogawa's comment about 'the eldest daughter of the Emperor'. Odorihime's mission to kill Katarina also began to make sense to her but this is all inside her mind and she doesn't have proof about the Emperor's true identity.

And finally, she knows that Jama has been meeting in secret with Ru, although to what end she doesn't know.

That's all I know haha nothing too secret since all of this is OOC kinda public knowledge.

Ah interesting. I had no idea what that group was to begin with. Thanks for the enlightenment.

Thanks to you! :P I enjoyed that scene a lot and while i wanted to have Anzai as an ally...yeah... haha

Well Hinami was always a proponent of Gun-boat diplomacy and to expand the influence of the Empire beyond it's natural borders. Hinami can be defined with two political ideas, first is complete and total domination of the Hantei dynasty over the clans and second expand trade, influence and the prestige of Rokugan abroad. Hinami wants a absolutist strong centralized government with great foreign influence power.

Gaijin are not a problem for Hinami as long as they don't overly contaminate the traditions of her culture and as long as they Kowtow to the Emperor of Rokugan. That is also a reason why Hinami kinda hates Anzai, she sees him as a Rokugani that decided that his own culture is not worthy and changed to gaijin culture.

My biggest surprise in the game is that i couldn't forge any alliances with other PCs. While I created a friendship with Utsu, all other characters decided to go against Hinami or ignore her. Which is not so strange after all...she is kinda a bitch, but still in that regard i think i failed. And because of that Hinami went to the Darkside, and Tiggeruka is not going to be a 'good' influence for her...

I will add something more . Because Hinami wants an Absolutist state, she wants to create a new organization, a secret police to destroy the enemies of the Hantei. Much like the Steel Magistrates from Hantei XVI reign, but i also thought about Oprichnina of Ivan the Terrible, The Embroidered Uniform Guard of the Ming dynasty in China and finally with a bit of Dai Li from Avatar the Last Airbender.

Hinami already is part of the bureaucracy that watches and polices others so she wants to expand that department. She sees the clans as nothing more than potential usurpers. The Gozoku and the Shogunate are the vivid example of what the clans are capable if they are not controlled and crushed. In that way, she wants to centralize all power into the Emperor's hands and in the imperial families, very similar to what Louis XIV did in France.

That explains Hinami hostility towards the Clans. The only exception are those who pursue the arts and expand the cultural heritage of Rokugan since Hinami recognizes the influence that 'soft-power' has.

And finally, while we didn't plan a lot beside our background I always thought Hikari as the voice of reason for Hinami. Hinami's relation with Hikari was thought as the counter balance for Hinami's worst atittude. Hinami was very close to Hikari, but their relationship is weird since Hinami blames Hikari for their curse, something that Hikari fueled because she was always the prankster.

The Curse of Sakkaku is a big deal in Hinami's personality, since the Curse is the reason that Hinami was not trained by the Seppun Miharu. She is considered too dangerous to be a personal guard of the Emperor and his family after all.

Ah, thanks very much for the read. When you mentioned secret police I just immediately think of the German ones.

Is Hinami ever going to marry? If she does, to whom... or maybe it is better to ask what she wants in a husband?

Doña Ximena, Princesa de Seppun will eventually marry to someone, which i expect to happen during IH4. I suppose Hinami's marriage will be a big deal for imperial politics.

To whom, it will depend if Hinami can influence the marriage process. I still have Obligation Miya Odorihime and Daddy Seppun and the Agasha daimyo are currently at odds because of the failure of the engagement between him and Hikari (Bakeneko's doing).

Hinami wants primarily someone quiet, sensible and with an artistic heart. Think of Prince Genji from Genji Monogatari. She also expects from his husband full loyalty to the Hantei and the Imperial families, and also he should be high status and an important political voice in Empire. To Hinami if his future husband knows how to fight or not is not important. Looks are also not a very important issue for her as long as the previous criteria are meet, they are a bonus.

That is the ideal. Not what will actually get.

>_<

...see? people are already fighting because of me.

One thing is certain though, Hinami wants to meet his future husband. She will not want to be betrothed to someone she has never met. To her, he must (at the very least) move his ass from wherever he is and come to meet her.
