So far, only four known people are confirmed to be part of the family: Shimotsuki Yasuie, his daughter Toko, the late daimyo Ushimaru and the swordsmith Kozaburo. Yasuie and Ushimaru were daimyo of Wano's Hakumai and Ringo regions respectively.[3]

The legendary samurai Ryuma has been called "Shimotsuki Ryuma", but it is unknown if he was part of the family.[4]

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

The Shimotsuki Family grew to become a respected family in Wano, having two of the country's regions entrusted to them. After the Beasts Pirates took over Wano, the known family members sided with the Kozuki Family, resulting in Ushimaru's death and Yasuie going into hiding for the next 20 years and fathering Toko. Yasuie sold his daughter to the Flower Capital, where she befriended Kozuki Hiyori and worked as her kamuro while Hiyori was the courtesan known as Komurasaki. Yasuie lived as a resident of Ebisu Town.

Wano Country ArcEdit

Yasuie encountered Zoro and befriended him. He also helped members of the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai Alliance by providing them a place to stay in Ebisu Town. When the alliance's plans began falling apart due to Orochi and the Beasts Pirates discovering Kin'emon's secret message, Yasuie decided to sacrifice himself. After his capture, Yasuie claimed responsibility for the message prior to his execution. While this served to humiliate Orochi as a paranoid coward, it did not deter him from his continual detainment of the rebels, as he saw through the ruse, thus rendering Yasuie's sacrifice mostly a waste. Toko, witnessing her father's death, mourned deeply for him.

TriviaEdit

  • "Shimotsuki" (霜月 frost moon?) fits most of the Wano Country families theme of having the kanji "Moon" in its name.
  • "Shimotsuki" is the old Japanese name for November.
  • The family share its name with Roronoa Zoro's hometown, Shimotsuki Village in East Blue.
    • People from Wano Country have emigrated to the East Blue before,[5] but it is unknown if the village has any connection to the family.
