Kanbe Kuroda pre-battle

Kanbe Kuroda is an unwilling vassal of the Western Army. Before the death of Hideyoshi Toyotomi at the hands of Ieyasu Tokugawa, Kanbe posed as a vassal of Hideyoshi with a scheme to steal the power for himself in mind. Though Kanbe possesses a brilliant mind and works as a great strategist, he is also cursed with bad luck. As such, his motives were discovered and Mitsunari Ishida took it upon himself to imprison Kanbe for the now dead Hideyoshi. At the start of the game, Kanbe acts as a prisoner at the mercy of the Western Army. Even though he is attached to a ball and chain, however, he still fights as a general in the war, and he's still coming up with plans to take over the country.
