Biography

Lady Angylyn is an heiress to the family line of clan Shioh, one of the many titles that belonged to the legendary clan of the Seigun Samurai. Raised in a wealthy estate among other ruling samurai clans, Angylyn was taught and trained the ways of the samurai code accompanied by her father; Suda Shioh, who pledged to his duties and was constantly swept into waging wars to protect his homeland, and most importantly, his daughter. A daughter that watched her father fight glorious battles for honor and prosperity, all through stories and paintings, hoping to wield her father’s blade in order to continue his story when the sun comes to dawn on him. 

After the terror of Yamamura, the shogunate concluded to replace its main military of clan Seigun with the samurai of clan Tatsu, warriors powered not by mastery but by weaponry. Leaving Angylyn’s father to step down from his duties, and their royalty. Now living in a dark and confined space deep down in the city, Angylyn was led to a much more dangerous path than before, especially for a young girl. Luckily, her father taught her how to defend herself and the secret arts of the Seigun. With Tekkan in a newly evolved era, Angylyn's training grew apart from the traditional sword to evolved ranged weaponry, such as muskets and rifles the young samurai found in the scrap. Despite her weapon of choice being dishonorable to her father's code, she wouldn’t let the Seigun Samurai’s end stop her from continuing her father’s legacy, so she enlisted in the Tatsu Samurai and became a very consistent and loyal marksman. Reclaiming the ruling title for clan Shioh and returning her and her father to their former estate. During her service, she reunited with Iwata Kisho, a fellow Tatsu Samurai and childhood friend who was also the son of a former Seigun Samurai, seeking to continue Tekkan’s legacy rather than his father’s. It didn’t take too long for the two samurai to fall in love, and a few years later, an engagement.

Angylyn has reached her peak, and it wasn’t too long for it to go downhill. The naive girl started to notice malicious intentions within Tekkan’s lords, lords such as Kuroda Tatsu; grand general of the Tatsu Samurai and official shogun of Tekkan, orchestrated a violent coup on the land. The once pacifist image Tekkan held has been poisoned by the ambitions of grief and power. In an effort to overthrow the shogunate, the Seigun Samurai returned once more to stand for their country one last time, although leading to their doom, the cost to doing so weakened the Tatsu Samurai, stripping the army of their power, delaying their malicious goals. These events left Angylyn in a labyrinth of self-doubt, leaving her to abandon her honor as a respected samurai, and her lover, to fulfill her promise as a child; to continue her father’s legacy as a Seigun Samurai, and finish what he started and died for. 

Angylyn fled her home and set it ablaze, leaving everything behind but her rifle, her sword, her pet bird; Kibo, and an old kabuto helmet given to her by her father before he left to die fighting for his duties. She fled to the very depths of Tatsu on horse to slowly forge her resistance to overthrow the Tatsu Samurai.

Years passed, and Angylyn kept her promise, she created a small crew of loyal misfits called the Smoking Serpents, including strong individuals such as Kasamatsu; A lone ryoshin who was sent to serve Angylyn as her lord, Nioh; A young, reckless swordsman with a high metabolism and a need for trouble, Hiro; A flying, drunken maniac who has been cursed with immortality, and Waradashi; an immense bunraku stolen from the Tatsu Samurai. The Smoking Serpents to this day, have become the most impactful band of heroes, with their wit and their will to fight not only out-numbered but also outgunned.
