Shingé

Japanese - A princess. Daughter of Zembei. When she was bitten by (or fainted at the sight of) a large snake, she was rescued by Yoshisawa and fell in love with him. When her father decreed that she could not marry a man of such low caste, she threw herself into the well where she had first met her beloved. In some lore, occasionally called Shingé.
