Hasmin was the son, and oldest of Homura's two children, with Meelana, his daughter, being born two years later. They had a healthy relationship with each other, growing up together under their fathers guidance. Hasmin was the stronger of the two, but was considered by most to be rash and simple minded, acting out of emotion rather than logic. Meelana however was very smart, and analyzed everything. She was a problem solver and proved to be very competent both in battle and as a leader. Soon it came time for Homura to step down and decide on a new leader for the village, the Second Nikkoukage. Meelana was convinced ti was going to be her, even though the odds were stacked against her. It was tradition for the first born to inherit their fathers titles, and after all Hasmin was the bigger, stronger one. But everyone knew that the village would have been in better hands if the daughter had taken over. Her wisdom and problem solving would have launched the village to new heights, but in the end tradition won out. Hasmin was chosen for his strength and courage, at least that was what was said at the induction ceremony. Meelana knew it was because he was the boy, and the first born. She did not let this ruin her relationship with her brother though, and instead took the position of head advisor, standing by her brothers side and guiding him through the world of politics. It was bumpy, and not easy, but together they managed to rule over the village, and caused it to grow. Nikkousato knew peace for the several years in which the duo ruled, with Hasmin as the sturdy arm of force and Meelana the patient mind of peace. Hasmin had one child of his own, a young girl, and Meelana never had any kids, in fact she never even married.
As Hasmin raised his daughter Masuoko, Meelana grew very sick, coming down with a sickness that could not quite be identified. In a matter of just a few years, the daughter of the first Nikkoukage found herself on her death bed, with no cure for whatever it was she had. Hasmin grew distraught, he allowed his sisters sickness to take a hold of his mental state. Eventually she passed away, which drove her brother mad. He lost all sense of reason and secluded himself from the rest of the world. He was unable to handle his sisters death, and soon fell into despair. He stayed in his room all day, drank all night and slept instead of ruled. The village began to pay, as the council was unable to lead without proper direction, people mourned the loss of both of their valued leader, and while the village began to fall into disary, the council knew something needed to be done.
Soon Masuoko came of age, and while she was still young, the village respected her, and knew she had the teachings of both her father and her aunt. She soon took the mantle of Nikkoukage, becoming the third in the villages history. How ever she was not like her father, and lacked the leadership qualities it took to run the village properly. People were happy at first, excited that the bloodline continued through this girl, but eventually realized that she was not what they needed. She was nervous, afraid to face conflict, sucked at international relations and was a push over. This allowed certain members of the council to step in, forcing her hand and allowing things to happen that were not for the benefit of the village. It became apparent that Masuoko was a figure head, while tyrannical corporate leaders ran the village from the shadows. This caused an uproar among the common people, they were tired of failed leaders and worsening conditions, and felt that it was time they chose the kage, instead of the next in line. In a bloody coupe, key members of the village assaulted the council, over threw the government and established their own leader. This caused Masuoko to flee for her life, vanishing from the village. Those who were left agreed to no longer follow the old ways, and allowed the village to choose their own leader in a series of elections, instead of it passing from family member to family member.
The next few years were rough, as the village went without a proper leader or any real direction for several years, as they took time to establish their new government and find a leader. Many elections were held, with platforms being raised, rallies popping up, and dozens of members thinking they had what it took to lead. It eventually came down to Alana however, a respected shinobi who had proven her time in battle, and was currently the head priest for the villages major religion. Already viewed by many as a leader, she was the obvious choice. While her strict ideals and stern teachings left some uneasy, it was a stark comparison to those before her, and many people knew that should had the ability to lead the village into a bright future.
To make matters worse, the village seems to be suffering from a epidemic at the moment. In the last few months several young children have been going missing, vanishing in thin air with no trace. It started with a few, and now is up to at least one a week, causing fear and panic to spread through the village. There is no leads, and even though the council assures they are on top of it, no progress has been made yet. Some worry that the combination of these kidnappings and the political tension will cause things to spiral out of control, maybe even reverting the village to its old chaotic ways.
