Prince Ashura hails from the Kingdom of a Thousand Summers (or so the name roughly translates) in the far east. He is the only child of King Yasha Nakamura and his wife Queen Tomoya, making him the Crown Prince of the Kingdom. The Kingdom is large by the standards of the hundred dukedoms but significantly smaller than the three main Kingdoms. It has been ruled by the Nakamura clan for many centuries, giving the Prince a rather lengthy lineage. In order to avoid being subsumed by one of the larger Kingdoms, the Prince's father forged an alliance with the Kingdom of the Crimson Queen. In exchange of maintaining his country's autonomy, the King of the Kingdom of a Thousand Summers must lend military aid to the Crimson Queen when it is called upon. For the most part this aid has not been recquired and so the Kingdom has been able to remain relatively peaceful the past few decades. Culturally the Kingdom shares a lot in common with the Kingdom of the Crimson Queen, although it is far less fiercely matriarchal. The Prince's mother, Queen Tomoya, is one of the Crimson Queen's many progeny. Although this technically also makes him a potential heir to the Crimson throne, it is very unlikely that a male heir would inherit that throne. Queen Tomoya is known to be a forceful and ambitious woman, although she seems to have a soft spot for her son. Rumours suggest that her marriage to King Yasha was more about mutual political benefits than any kind of affection.

Prince Ashura Nakumura first encountered westerners on the underside of the world, including a man by the name of Roark Velasquez, who taught him about the Black Flame. Having lost his advisor and sorcerer during the mission he was forced to accompany the remaining westerners on a journey back to the upper side of the earth through the Shattered Plane, a journey which seemed to take its toll on him. When he reported back to his parents he was instructed by his mother to travel to the White City and set up an embassy there. His goal in the west were to become stronger and learn more of this Black Flame so he might become a good King; to find a way to prevent the tipping of the earth, and given the recent events in the City of Lights to keep an eye out for signs of western expansionism. The embassy of the Kingdom of a Thousand Summers consists of a meeting room and two offices in the Prince's townhouse. It had four members of staff, all brought over from the east: a cook, a cleaner, two administrators and the Prince's bodyguard: Misa Kenochi. After the incident involving Roark Velasquez the Prince returned to the West with a somewhat larger retinue and his embassy was officially recognised by the White City. The Prince is also rumoured to be looking to hire a bodyguard after being betrayed by his previous bodyguard.

Having lived a rather privaleged life till now the Prince is rather dangerously naive, with the potential to be led astray easilly. Life in the west has also made him subject to a certain amount of culture shock. After having a near death experience in the temple of man Prince Nakamura seems to have returned a changed man, perhaps less naive and less compassionate. There are mutterings that he has had a string of short-lived affairs with different young noble men, although these are of course completely baseless accusations.

After the death of the Rattle Prince it is said that Prince Ashura regained some of the idealism of his youth but legend also state that his time in the west had changed him irrevocably, for better or worse is not known. He left the White City behind after having played a pivotal role in slaying the Rattle Prince, determining that he had learned all the westerners had to teach him, and returned to his role as crown Prince of the Kingdom of a Thousand Summers having impressed the Crimson Queen with a potent gift: the heart of a god. Those stories of him after he left the White City that reached the ears of the westerners are a mixed bag: telling of him being a strict but just ruler, hungry for power but always in the interests of his people. Many also say that he was always little sad, regretful of something he had lost.
