<< Taisuke Takamu Takefute >>

Star: Chimou

Origin: Sol-Falena

Events: Sun Rune War

Position: Cartographer

Born: IS 423

Death: N/A

Once a court official in the Sun Palace, Takamu was commissioned by Ferid to make an accurate map of Falena, for use among the entire population. Takamu devoted himself to this task.

After the Godwin coup, they declared maps were war secrets and demanded Takamu turn his materials over, but he refused and was thrown in Agate Prison. The Prince and Cius were passing through the prison, and the guard let him out. They found his equipment, and Takamu, grateful for the aid, joined the Prince's army to continue his work.

Takamu has an amazing sense of direction, which really helps him make his maps. In fact, his sense is so good, that he can travel upon elven roads despite being a human.

His cartography is also top-notch. Takamu pays amazing attention to detail and color-codes different passages, such as underground paths through the Baska Mine. Curious as to see if the maps had any flaws, Shigure was asked to look over them, only to find there were none. - Matt 620 (article), Basel (image)
