Seppun Nakao

Nakao was tall, strong, a follower of bushido, and an unquestioned loyal follower. He had the potential to be a brilliant general but he left strategy to others. After Nakao averted an attempt on Kakita Yoshi's life, the powerful courtier became his friend. [1]

Imperial Legions Edit

Nakao was a member of the Nineteenth Imperial Legion, reaching the rank of taisa, assigned to guard Beiden Pass. [1] He commanded the occupation of Ryoko Owari Toshi, as part of the Imperial retaliation after the failure of the Scorpion Coup. Under his command were the chui Seppun Hanzo, and a young gunso by the name Doji Reju. He left the command to attend provincial Winter Court at Kyuden Kakita in 1126. [2] Two months later, in the Month of the Hare of 1127, the Eighteenth Legion was destroyed by the surprise Crab attack. [3]
