Despite his grandfather's wish to succeed him as master of a yōkai yakuza clan, he tries to escape his fate of acting like a yōkai by doing good deeds. He eventually comes to terms with his yōkai blood and decides to take up the position of Young Head of the Nura House. Multiple factions aim to stop him or overtake his position, and he must gather friends and allies, a new Hyakki Yakō under his banner of Osore, or Fear.
