Mori Ranmaru was born in Owari in 1565. He was the third of six brothers. Ranmaru’s father and brothers served Oda Nobunaga. Ranmaru also served Nobunaga Oda as a page in 1577.
Ancient documents describe Ranmaru as a capable secretary of Nobunaga. One anecdote which illustrates his dedication goes as follows: One day, after cutting his nails and placing them on a folding fan, Nobunaga asked Ranmaru to throw it away. When Ranmaru received the folding fan according to the order, he counted nine nails. On this account, it is said that Ranmaru returned to Nobunaga’s room and loked for the remaining nail. Furthermore, when Nobunaga’s aide and daimyos asked him to name the things that he was proud of, he said that the first was the white hawk, the second was the blue bird, and the third was Ranmaru.
In 1582, Ranmaru Mori shared the last with Nobunaga Oda in the Honnouji-Incident.
