Horiuchi Mikiko has been regent of the Horiuchi family for over twenty years. This was never meant to be the case, but few outside the Unicorn know what may have happened to the boy who was meant to replace her. Mikiko can often be described as tired, as one can often expect when one is thrust into a duty they were never meant for, but she puts the best face she can on the duty expected of her.
A young boy and girl, twins, have recently come of age. Their lineage places them as potential rulers of the Horiuchi, and Mikiko can only pray that they are worthy of the honor.
