Description: Yasumasa had a brother, Kidomaru, who became an outlaw rather than accept a position under Raiko. Late one evening, under a full moon, Yasumasa strolled home over the moors, playing his flute. Kidomaru, a big man, needed some new robes, and crept up behind Yasumasa intending to attack and strip him. Before he could strike, he became enchanted by the music of the flute.
