Shigen Naoe


Shigen is one of the four guardians of "Hell's Gate". He represents Byakko, the White Tiger. Shigen was once a gentle, peaceful man, however he has been sealed in stone for ten years by his friend, Shinnosuke Kagami. Kagami saw him to be a threat in his plan for opening the Hell's Gate. Shigen's hatred and agony have driven him over the edge, and all he can think of is revenge against the one who locked him away.

During the storyline of Last Blade 2, Shigen regains his senses and remembers that he had a daughter. To atone for his ten year absence, he travels to the mountains to spend time with her while training. During this timeframe, he notices the evil aura that emanated from the opened "Hell’s Gate". As one of its guardians, he set out to close it, leaving his sleeping daughter in the darkness of night. However, he was initially unaware that his daughter knew of his departure and that she was following him at a distance.

Interesting how he represents "Byakko the White Tiger"... Also a character that inspired Capcom (Byakko). I find his design to be pretty cool, though he's a bit awkward at the same time. As a big guy/oddball design for his series, he fits in pretty well with the cast, but on a more personal note, he's one of my least favorite characters from the series.
