Introducing Gekko Sato (Left) and Hisashi Inoue (Right)
I used an H2B pencil, a Fine-liner and Colored pencils. Took me about 6 hours to design and line it and about 8 hours to color it.
If you haven't seen the previous Deviations that are connected to this one here they are in order in the links directly below:rcthenatural.deviantart.com/ar…rcthenatural.deviantart.com/ar…rcthenatural.deviantart.com/ar…rcthenatural.deviantart.com/ar…
Now to the story
If you recall before Kaori works for a man named Sato, well the blonde haired suited man is him, "Gekko Sato!"
He is the most influential business man in the country and is the President, Founder and Owner of the biggest tech corporation around "Sato Tech". He supplies the Industries, and Military of the country with the latest technology. (As well as other interested parties
Whilst he is away, Kaori is left in charge of company matters for a while.
Which brings us to who is the man accompanying him??? Well if you guessed Hayato's father you were correct!
"Hisashi Inoue" as previously mentioned in preceding story development is currently the Emperor's Chief Adviser but that's not all!
He moonlights as Sato's "Right hand man"
Of this the Emperor currently knows nothing about, neither does Hayato.
In the night Hisashi meets up with Sato to discuss the latest intel on the Capital as well as other things.
But just how did Sato and Hisashi meet?
Hisashi was approached by Sato at the funeral for his wife who was killed by "Hoseki Ninja"in an attack on the Capital about 17 years ago. Hayato has no recollection of his mother as he was barely 1 year old at the time of the incident.
The Hoseki are the people who reside in the "Hoseki Forest" (Gem Forest) which is situated not too far outside Daiyamondo City.
Peace has been made between the two sides since then as it was a rogue group of Ninja who attacked the Capital about 17 years ago but their's still bad blood between living remnants of the two sides. If you remember Kaori and Akiko are part of the Hoseki and Akiko is currently training to become a Ninja in the Hoseki Forest with her people.
Which brings us back to Sato and Hisashi's relationship. Sato approached Hisashi with the prospect of revenge on the Hoseki people as well as the promise of peaceful and abundant means for him and his infant son Hayato in exchange for becoming his spy in the chain of command of the Capital. Maybe not his best decision but an obviously still distraught Hisashi said: I'll do it
Fueled by rage he only had one thing on his mind "Revenge!"
Sato replied: Excellent! Then it's a deal then
Since that day Hisashi with the help of Sato has worked his way up the chain of command until finally for the last 5 years Hisashi has become the Emperor's most trusted adviser and the 2nd most powerful man in the whole country.
While all this was going on for the past 17 years Sato has been steadily growing his company, connections, and resources by any means necessary into the power house that it is now to a point where most of Daiyamondo City would stop functioning were he to shut down business. Just what is his motivation? Well he want's to be the most powerful man in the country and won't stop until he has absolute control of it. Sato would rather see a country run by an elected man than a "Hierarchy" and their's one efficient way to do that. You see the Emperor has no current children as the result of his inability to produce an heir so there are no current heirs to the throne and he has yet to select a successor. Were he to die before selecting one the new ruler of the country would be the result of an election and who else better to elect than the man everyone reveres as one of this countries real pioneers, "Gekko Sato!" The only catch is you must be 40 years old by law to start a new Imperial line if you are not born into it or selected by a current Emperor. Sato is 39 years old and will be 40 in 6 months!!!
When elected Sato has promised Hisashi to declare all inhabitants of the Hoseki Forest enemies of the Capital and to be thrown into jail for crimes against the Capital and any resistance would be considered an act of war.
Currently 39 years old also, lately Hisashi has been having second thoughts as he knows he would likely be the successor to the throne the emperor chooses at the same time though he also knows to cross Sato would mean death for him and his boy.
How will Hisashi choose his next move and will Sato be allowed his seemingly peaceful ascension to the top or will he have to get a little more dirty to realize his aspirations? Is it too late for Hisashi to have a choice? Find out in the next installment!
