During the first age there was a famed Solar. His name was Dorhan ol-Sohim, and he was called by some as the Father of the Legions. He was not the greatest general Creation knew, but those who would call themselves the greatest had all studied under him. His ideas on tactics and how to train, inspired others to hights he never reached. As such while he was not the greatest if he were to host a symposium or write a book, the best of the best would be sure to attend or read.

Now if he were the Father of the Legions, than perhaps Higa Satou could have been said to be his daughter. Her Exaltation in the First Age lead to her becoming his personal apprentice. She was a close friend to him, many said closer than his Lunar mate ever was, and she soaked up his teachings like a sponge. Many said she would be a second him really. She also eagerly studied under others. She learned at the feet of the Directional War Gods and sought out and received instruction from the Golden Lord. Her performance on the battlefield both personally and as a commander earned her rank and prestige and her military writings did not have the experience of her mentor but showed great promise.

Yet in the end she was convinced by Kejak to side with the idea of the Ursupation. She made sure the greatest of the Dragonblooded Legions that he had trained were not loyal to the Solars but instead to Creation. She set them destinies to grant them victory over their once-Kings. If she grieved over her mentor's death she did not show it though many assumed her refusal to join the Bronze Faction as a sign that it weighed on her.

She kept herself busy though. The loss of the Solars lead to other things beyond just infrastructure and technology. The military geniuses of the past seemed to fade away. Tactics ignored for glory or for politics she did what she could to slow the decay but like the Sidereals as a whole could not stop it. When the Great Contagion came that was the final blow to the idea of the First Age military. She ignored the orders of from the Panoply leadership and instead went to Creation proper to engage the Fair Folk directly. She does not talk about that experience though oddly enough came back with a massive moonsilver saber.

In the second age she has been less active. She instead focusses on being an instructor at the Crimson Panoply with a focus on the Sidereal students. She teaches to strick standards just like she did before the collapse of civilization and true military culture as she puts it. Yet she is good at what she does.
