|“||Let's go! For our convictions!||”|
—Sakanaku Tenka, leading his troops in battle.
|Affiliation|| Leazas, Leazas Black Corps, Leazas Rebel Army|
|Appeared in||Kichikuou Rance|
Sakanaku Tenka is a high-ranking commander of the Leazas Black Corps.
Sakanaku has to date only appeared in the non-canon Kichikuou Rance, where he, along with his colleagues Jibul Makutomi and Dodge Evans, joins the Leazas Rebel Army formed by General Ex Banquet in opposition of Rance, the recently crowned King of Leazas. While Sakanaku can be killed in battle when fighting against the rebellion, it is possible to spare him by avoiding defeating Haurein Province, Melfeis Promenade and Pegasus Fort in combat until retaking the rebellion's base in Oaks. If spared, Sakanaku will not make any further appearances within the story, suggesting that he either resumed his normal duties within the Black Corps after the rebellion's failure or was expelled from the army due to betraying his country.
Personality and Appearance Edit
Sakanaku is an old man with a short, stocky body, a bald head and a pair of large white eyebrows. His clothing consists of the standard uniform for a soldier of the Black Corps.
From what little is known about Sakanaku's character, he appears to be a seasoned veteran commander who has served in the Leazas Army for a long time. He also seems quite spirited in his old age, boldly declaring that he will fight for what he believes in till the end of his life. Above all else, he seems to be a man who cares deeply for his country's future, joining Ex's rebellion in order to oppose Rance's tyrannical reign even if it meant fighting his allies, and begging Ex to save Leazas during his final moments.
While the full extent of Sakanaku's abilities are largely unknown, his high position within the Leazas Army suggests that he is a skilled soldier and military leader. This is further supported by his performance in Ex's rebellion, where he was able to command a large force of 1000 rebel soldiers.
In combat, Sakanaku somewhat uniquely utilizes a large broadsword rather than the standard long sword wielded by most other Leazas knights.
- A young Black Corps soldier named Nikunaku Tenka appears in Rance 03 as the leader of a group of generic Leazas soldiers subjected to the mind control powers of the Apostle Garnet. Whether he is a relative of Sakanaku or not is unknown.
