Shin was raised within the walls of Clan Miyazaki’s estate upon the central isle. He was married to a woman designated by the clan elders upon reaching maturity, but the two soon fell in love. He quickly rose to prominence within the Shogun’s court and served honorably for years. Shin and his wife had several children during that time, who have since grown to have children of their own. Eventually, Shin felt it was time to retire from courtly affairs and the couple moved from the isle to live out their days in peace. The Great Contagion, however, claimed his wife and he fears for the safety of the rest of his family who remained on the isle.
