Yamasuzu was not born by that name. In fact, she couldn't tell you what her birth name was, for she was a resource recovered from the remains of a small ogre family that had taken to raiding the Chonojougi hobgoblins' supply trains and earned summary retribution. With the majority of the ogres slain outright, she was amongst a small number of infants and young that were still viable for training and molding, the feral ways of their parents not yet completely ingrained.

The infant ogress, given a number and a code designation, was raised communally with the other children of the tribe, taught with them, and trained to fight with them. She grew quickly in size, strength, and ferocity, but did not demonstrate the typical ogrish diminished mental capacity. Instead, the ogreling kept up with her hobgoblin fellows admirably. Where the other ogres were pushed into frontline roles or used for heavy labor, she instead caught the eye of the young and ambitious Monkhbakuizu. Straightforward and utterly loyal, the maturing ogress became something of a bodyguard and enforcer for the rising warlord.

After Monkhbakuizu took control of the Chonojougi tribe in its entirety, the ogress began to demonstrate her tactical aptitude, something that intrigued the warlord considerably. Granted command over a group of linebreakers and raiders, she directed them with skilled practice, eventually becoming a major contributor to the subjugation and absorption of two entire minor clans. Having demonstrated incredible physical prowess as well as impressive leadership, Monkhbakuizu at last granted her the great honor of a High Goblin name.

The newly-minted Commander Yamasuzu has remained at the warlord's side since, a formidable force by strength and size alone but an inspiring leader, a banner for the troops to flock to and follow into battle.
