Obata Toramori (小畠虎盛, Obata Toramori? 1491 - July 14, 1561)
Toramori acted as one of the primary supporters of Takeda Nobutora at the very time at which he enlisted himself within the Takeda forces; and after many years of mutual service, he would be allowed the free use of 'tora' in his respective name. Following the death of Nobutora and the succession of his son, Shingen, Toramori supported the latter as one of the Takeda's Twenty-Four Generals, even though remaining as a general subordinate to senior retainer Baba Nobufusa, supporting the latter throughout many variable battles. With many conflicts having passed, Toramori was highly esteemed as a man of capability: over the course of 30 battles, Toramori suffered no more than 40 wounds, even though being an Ashigaru Captain that held 15 cavalry and 75 ashigaru soldiers directly beneath his command. Following the Fifth Battle of Kawanakajima in 1561, Toramori would return to his Kaizu castle; but as poor circumstances would have it, Toramori had already been suffering from a severe illness, and thus unfortunately died within June of that year, regarded by the Takeda as a man of high regard and respect
