1516? (Daiei 7) *Fictional*














Nagato Fujibayashi (藤林長門守, fujibayashi nagato-no-kami; ふじばやし ながとのかみ) was a real ninja from Japan's Warring States Peroid. He appears in the online series Pure Heart: Ninjutsu Chronicle.


Creation and Concept/Rumors

While sources are very vague, Nagato-no-kami was a real person and one of the most important ninja during the Warring States Peroid, parallel to Hanzo Hattori. It was said that he and Sandayuu were the same person, and his life is wrapped in mystery. In Seishin, he has a rivalry with Tanba Momochi and plays the role of a loyalist.

It is said that he was employed by Yoshimoto Imagawa, and taught ninjutsu to Kansuke Yamamoto (1501 - 1561), who would become one of Shigen Takeda's generals. Also, during the 2nd Tenshō Iga no Ran, he fought the Oda Forces along with Tanba until the end.

Another rumor is that Nagato is related to Chikahira Izumi (泉 親衡), a senior vassal of Minamoto no Yoritomo (源頼朝). He took arms in Mt. Togakushi in Nagano Province; after losing to Hojo Family, he built a castle in Yufune. [1]


Fujibayashi is a reclusive, laconic person. He is taciturn, especially when his focus is pressed into writing or meditating. A worldy-wise man, said to have very high introspective and he speaks in a fatherly tone that makes others listen to what wisdom he has to offer. He is very dexterous in holding small tools, but he feels that his writing isn't very good compared to the upper samurai. He's also a very accepting individual.
