A young woman raised as the heir to a small dojo in Aizu saw her father abandon that dojo, along with his family, in order to pursue dreams of sword-swinging heroism. The young woman had no choice but to close the dojo with its dwindling patronage and move to the Aizu Clan Quarters in Edo where her mother served, arranging for her to work for the Aizu daimyo Katamori Matsudaira's sister-in-law, Teruhime. Taking over her newly re-married mother's station in service to the Aizu Clan the young woman began to dream of the stories of heroism her father had passed on since her youth, inheriting the dream of living by the sword for her own.
Having gleaned the young woman's dilemma, Teruhime recognized the potential of a group of swordsmen described to her by Katamori, who held the post of Kyoto Protector. It was the Mibu Roshigumi which came to mind as a solution. As they were under the purview of the Aizu Clan, Teruhime requested of her brother-in-law, Katamori, that the young woman be inducted into the Mibu Roshigumi. Thus it was that this young woman set off for the capital, Kyoto, exceeding the bounds of gender to wield her sword among the Mibu Roshigumi.
The Mibu Roshigumi, comprised of a number of valiant swordsmen, this group later became known...as the Shinsengumi.
