Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood Episode 11 Spoilers
Episode 8 offers Jin’s backstory. It is revealed his original name is Iori, and he was kept at a facility to be one of Janome’s test subjects when the man was still working for the Shogun. After his friend killed himself with a piece of glass, Iori used it to kill prisoners and guards alike to escape from the facility. He was found by a Nue agent who introduced himself as “Kotodama.” He subsequently met the Shogun himself and demonstrated his desire to live and serve the Shogunate by licking away a bottle worth of spilled wine from the floor.
He got a new name, Jin Kuzuhara, and gradually became one of the most effective Nue agents. After Janome betrayed the Shogun, Jin was sent to protect the residents of the Karasumori village. He met Sawa’s mother and discovered the special ability of her clan. In the following months, he saved the village from several attacks. Ultimately, Kotodama came to tell him that the Shogun had ordered the deaths of all the villagers. Although deeply conflicted about the order, Jin still killed every villager except Sawa. When Kotodama arrived, Jin told him that he would turn the little girl into a Nue assassin.
Disregarding the suggestion, Kotodama tried to kill Sawa, but Jin killed him instead. The episode ends in the present time, as Sawa demands to know if Jin had killed her clan. In episode 9, despite her earlier promise to Asahi, Sawa will likely try to kill Jin. In addition, the details about Elena’s special mission might be revealed.
