[Art] IkeSen OC: Asahihime 🎀
Just an introduction of one of my IkeSen OCs! Asahi is based off of Ieyasu’s actual second wife, however, despite having many similar background story attributes to the real historical Asahi a lot of her story won’t be historically accurate. But anyways, I hope you guys like! 🧡
Name: Asahihime/Asahi Tokugawa
Birthday: April 17 (historical birthday unknown)
Significant Relationships: Hideyoshi Toyotomi (older brother (historically half-brother))
Ieyasu Tokugawa (husband)
Asahi is a usually happy and cheerful girl who loves animals and fashion. Since she’s such an avid animal lover that she tends to bring random strays home with her and tries her best to hide them, but Hideyoshi eventually finds them and forces her to set them free. Just like Hideyoshi, she tends to be rather doting, especially towards her husband Ieyasu. That combined with her obsession with cute fashion compels her to force him into cute clothing, such as girly hair accessories and pretty kimonos, and despite his embarrassment Ieyasu just goes along with what she wants because he loves her (as long as she doesn’t make him go outside like that)
As Hideyoshi’s younger sister, she grew up just like him, developing the need to look after others. Since she had no younger siblings, she channeled that out on small animals, and continued to do that as she grew up. She and Hideyoshi have had a very close relationship their entire life, looking after eachother all the time.She met Ieyasu while she was on a stroll one day, when she saw Wasabi and ran over to pet her. Ieyasu did find her slightly annoying but since she and Wasabi seemed to like eachother he decided to let it go. He was pretty shocked when he found out that she was Hideyoshi’s sister though, but after noticing how doting she was he understood. They eventually developed a pretty sweet friendship that soon developed into romance, and eventually led to marriage later.
Relationship with Azuchi Warlords
Nobunaga: Since she’s Hideyoshi’s sister, he naturally respects her and looks up to her. Although he does find her nagging slightly annoying sometimes, he otherwise enjoys her company.
Hideyoshi: He would do anything for his little sister and the feelings are completely mutual. Though it took him a little while to get used to her and Ieyasu’s relationship at first, because he tends to worry a lot about her, he decided that if she was happy, he was too.
Masamune: He really enjoys her fun and happy personality, and finds her fascination with fashion entertaining, especially when she makes Ieyasu wear cute clothes.
Mitsunari: Not only does he respect her as Ieyasu’s wife, but he they also get along as good friends. They like to go shopping together sometimes to buy new clothes for Ieyasu (much to Ieyasu’s dismay).
Ieyasu: Despite finding her persistence and nagging slightly irritating, he would do anything for her, since he loves her so much. He also respects her as his wife and also Hideyoshi’s younger sister, and secretly finds her and Hideyoshi’s sibling dynamic cute.
Mitsuhide: He finds her amusing but is a bit bummed because she sometimes doesn’t fall for his tricks (Hideyoshi passed knowledge down to her). But otherwise they’re neutral.
Ranmaru: He really loves her sense of style and looks up to her like an older sister. She’s naturally protective of him so he relies on her for a lot of things.
