Uesugi Kenshin - "The Dragon of Echigo" ruled the province of Echigo towards the end of the Sengoku period (Feudal Japan). He was known for his prowess in battle and in court. Kenshin gained his reputation and nickname after several clashes with the legendary "Tiger of Kai", better known as Takeda Shingen. Both may have received these names because of their interest in Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" and their interest in Chinese culture.
The two Daimyos fought five times before Takeda was able to defeat Kenshi. Uesugi Kenshin believed in the Buddhist god of war. For this reason, his men considered him the avatar of Bishamonten, calling Kenshin the "God of War". His yoroi set comes with a dragon maedate (crest) for luck.
