Hisamasa Azai is Nagamasa's father and the second clan head of the Azai family. Unlike his talented son, Hisamasa did not have the drive to lead his men into war and was considered a cowardly, weak leader. A popular legend states that he is one of the reasons for the Azai's defection, the story stating that Hisamasa insisted his son resist the distasteful Nobunaga.
Role in GamesEdit
Hisamasa appears in Samurai Warriors 3 in the front lines of Odani Castle to do battle with the Oda forces. He struggles, however, and maybe rescued by his son. Worried for his father's safety, Nagamasa orders Hisamasa to retreat back to the castle. Hismasa is not mentioned again and he presumably dies when the castle is set ablaze.
Hisamasa appears as a minor officer in Kessen III during the siege of Odani Castle. If defeated he will lament that his actions to motivate Nagamasa against Nobunaga were wrong.
