Age of Emperors
The Imperial Concubine
Born a heimin, Mineko is widely regarded as the most beautiful woman in all the land. She was brought to Otosan Uchi by Bayushi Toshio who was her lover. The Emperor, Akodo V, succumbed to her charms, however, and took her as his concubine. He has since only had time for Mineko sending his wife, Akodo Kasumi, away to the Seppun Palace. The Emperor has allowed Mineko to enjoy all the luxuries and privileges of being Empress which has greatly angered the Phoenix representatives.
