BIOGRAPHY
   The firstborn son of the late Emperor Antei, Emperor Go-Tenshi (henceforth known as Eijiro) has served as a test pilot for the Imperial Air Force before acceding to the throne in 2020. His reign has seen Daitō join the CSTO, but also a coup attempt by Prime Minister Eita Fukumoto in late 2020. His reign has seen the drafting of a new constitution, but also the death of his father and the beginning of a new era for the nation. Despite this rough start, many are optimistic for his reign.

BIOGRAPHY

BIOGRAPHY
   Etsuji always had grown up in the shadow of his great grandfather and elder brother. Both had been destined from birth to serve as the Emperor of Daitō, after all, and he was but the second-son of a deceased crown prince. But whereas the ambitious would see this as a tragedy, he saw it as an opportunity to forge his own path. He never believed in destiny, after all. It was for that reason that he, unlike his brother, would not serve in the military, nor would he seek a job in the Imperial Household Agency or Daitōjin Diplomatic Corps. Rather, he pursued a career as an Architect, a subject which he had loved from a fairly early age. Where his brother would build diplomatic bridges, he figured, he would build actual ones.

       • Prince Uchitsune (Father, deceased)
       • Princess Terumi Himekawa (Mother - Alive)

             • Prince Fumihiko (Son - Alive)

BIOGRAPHY
   Friendly, albeit reserved, Jakob often prioritizes the needs of the Empire over his own. This has frequently been at the detriment of his relationship with his family, who he was rarely able to see thanks in part to this job of his. Of course, that is not to say he was always away, given that they would spend half the year with him, but it certainly put a strain on this relationship. Regardless, he has always sought to do right by them and his nation.

FAMILY
       • Erich II Felix von Altenberg (Father - deceased)
       • Ilse-Marie von Altenberg (nιe Bauer, Mother - deceased)

    • Gereon I Wilhelm Gustav Waldemar von Altenberg (Grandfather - deceased)
    • Charlotte Viktoria Augusta von Altenberg (nιe von Harrach, Grandmother - deceased)

NOTES
   Due to the nature of his job as Ambassador to Achkaerin, it is rare for him to be in his homeland. It is said that he has developed a certain love for sailing.

HONOURS
    • — Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun

BIOGRAPHY
   Hisayoshi is known as a compassionate individual, one who wants nothing more than to prevent the suffering of the masses. This stands in sharp contrast to his ancestors, who were the perpetrators of the so-caled "Nullification", a program which can only be considered cultural genocide in the 17th century against the native inhabitants of the island. One could reason, perhaps, that it is because of these actions that he has taken measures to help those who on their own he deems helpless, in a way an effort to atone for his family's sins.

FAMILY

   • Yamana Akitake (Grandfather - Deceased)
   • Fumita Ikuyo (Grandmother - Deceased)

NOTES
   Hisayoshi is the founder and CEO of "Children of Liberation", a nonprofit aimed at supporting victims of human trafficking from Tamora and other Aranyean nations. As a result, he cannot travel to the country without risking arrest. Hisayoshi took over as Grand Duke following his father's abdication of the office in 2017.

BIOGRAPHY
   Some have said that Fukushi Hakaru never had a chance of becoming one of the highest-ranking officers in the Armed Forces. Those same people would've said that him lasting even a year in the army was unlikely, given his poor health in his early life. Despite the struggles he had to overcome, he has proven these critics wrong time and time again. Now one of the most influential people in the Empire, some say he has lost himself in his efforts to reach the top. Others say he poses a distinct threat to the status-quo. Some even say that, given the chance, he would seek a war with the allies that Daitō considers most dear as some attempt to gain glory on the battlefield like the legends of old. Whether any of these claims are true or not, it cannot be said that he lacks ambition. It is that ambition that pushes him, like it has many before, to take great sacrifices for the sake of notoriety, whether good or bad.

NOTES
   The de-facto head of the SMRG, a faction within the Teikokutō, he has, albeit secretly, plotted to overthrow the current Emperor and place a puppet on the throne through which he would be able to rule from the shadows.
