Hills of Silver Ruins (3/13)

I again cribbed a little Shakespeare, this time from Sonnet 29.

When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes
I all alone beweep my outcast state
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries

A taika (胎果) is a person born in China or Japan because of a shoku (蝕) event that transplanted a ranka (卵果) into the body of a pregnant woman.

Thank you for using your Japanese and your writing skills to help us non-Japanese reading fans! Made my day!

Taiki is definitely an intriguing character, full of inner strength and wisdom, acting with a combination of shrewdness and integrity.
