The Sengoku (
JP:暁の陣 romaji: Akatsukino-jin lit. Akatsuki's team) is a class in the game.
Many centuries ago, there was a time of peace.
The Great Diviner of that time, Abeno Seimei, had a premonition that, at some point, an entity would appear, wielding the power of the 6th Sky Demon King, and threaten the entire land of Japan.
Time had passed in the world of Sengoku. Just as predicted, a man by the name of Oda Nobunaga appeared, calling himself the 6th Sky Demon King. With an overwhelming military force, the world of Sengoku was seized into hegemony in the blink of an eye. In order to be reborn into the 6th Sky Demon King, Nobunaga went to Honnoji to perform the ritual of the Demon King’s Descendant.
However, Abeno Seimei had a premonition that foretold that 5 skilled men would rise to oppose Nobunaga.
From then on, they would be called the "Children of Five Stars", and they would be burdened to carry the fate of opposing the threat of Oda Nubunaga over the entire nation of Japan. A mark would be printed somewhere on each their bodies to show proof of their heavenly bodies.
A skilled swordsman by the name of Hayato and an exorcist by the name of Kanna joined with the military forces for the sake of preventing the ritual of the Demon King’s Descendant. They were the "Children of Five Stars" who would carry the stars of fate in their bodies and carry out their duty of defeating Oda Nobunaga.
The people of the Sengoku Era have recently aligned themselves with the Maple Alliance.
Sengoku is a reference to the Sengoku Period of Japan's history, from the mid-15th to the beginning of the 17th century, a time of social upheaval, political intrigue, and nearly constant military conflict. Many of the NPC's involved in Sengoku quests and storylines are in fact named and modeled after real life figures from the era.
