- "If I were the emperor...would you be with me instead?"
Shu Tendo or Tendo, is the older brother of the emperor Hotohori . His true identity is not a Suzaku warrior though he had a mark, but the Prince of Suzaku. However in Eikoden he was identified as the king of Suzaku. Along with Houki, his name which means "god disguised in a child" does not suit him, but he still continues to work in the farms. His family is a bit richer than Houki, but they have the same debts.
