Hideyoshi Toyama

Captain Hideyoshi Toyama was a fanatical young officer in the Third Sword of Light who was desperate to avenge his unit's humiliation on Robinson.[1]


When Miyogi Kurita attempted to rally his support in the High Command to save his son Jon Kurita, court rumors that the Coordinator was sending an offer of alliance to the Federated Suns (in truth a smear campaign waged by Roweena's friends within the ISF) scuttled these efforts, that was enough for Hideyoshi.

With a large explosive device strapped to his chest, Toyama succeeded in entering the Imperial Palace when the Coordinator was seeing petitioners in the Audience Hall, killing 30 people including himself and Miyogi Kurita. When word of the assassination reached the Davion front, Taragi had his ISF contacts arrest Jon Kurita, executing him for negligence and treason after a mock trial. With the death of Miyogi's only male child, Taragi became Coordinator of the Draconis Combine unchallenged.[2][3]
