Kagesuke Shouni (少弐景資, Shōni Kagesuke) is the Shogunate High General of the Kamakura shogunate. Just before the Mongolian forces attack Tsushima, he asks Kuchii Jinzaburou to try and delay the Mongolians for 7 days so he is able to send reinforcements.
Kagesuke appears as a Japanese male of average height and build with short, spiky black hair and black eyes. A scar of sorts runs across his right cheek just under his right eye. He is seen dressed in formal uniform befitting that of a Shogunate High General, and also wields a staff.
Kagesuke's background is very obscure. He is said to have been a warlord who oversaw the Kyushu masters, and a remarkable warrior. However, his skills in combat and his backstory are never explicitly shown.
At the beginning of the series when the exiles have finally arrived at Tsushima Island, Shouni visits Kuchii Jinzaburou, his former colleague, and tells him that a large Mongolian force will be attacking the island. He asks Jinzaburou to try and delay the Mongol forces for 7 days so that he can send reinforcements to the island, and from there they shall start retaking the island. Shouni then gives a short sword to Jinzaburou which turns out to be a short sword used by Minamoto-no-Yoshitsune during the Genpei War. He says to Jinzaburou that he is worthy of wielding it more than he is, and also mentions that he will request Kuchii's reinstatement as a vassal of the Kamakura shogunate.
