His full name is Gen Atsuyu (元斡由). He is the governor of Gen Province in En, but not too long after Shouryuu became the emperor of En, Atsuyu attempted to pull a coup d'etat over him. In the process, Atsuyu became the benefactor of Kouya. However, he was extremely narcissistic and was not able to pull off any sort of revolt, though he did give Rokuta quite a scare. In the end, he was killed by Shouryuu. Atsuyu is his azana (nickname). His real name is Setsuyuu (接祐).
