Hikaru “Takuetsu” Harada – Japan
“In most versions of this, my character just fades out after act two. I’m not following his lead.”
In the production, Takuetsu is the brothel owner and Iemon’s reluctant co-conspirator. He’s present at Oiwa’s death and one of the only characters free from her spirit’s wrath. In the troupe, Takuetsu assists Samon with holography and props after his character exits in act two, which has given him an appreciation for all the myraid background tasks that go into a proper stage production. It’s also given him a mechanical aptitude, which has come in far more useful than he ever thought it would be during the xeno invasion.
