Shimazu is a Clan in Nioh.
The Shimazu clan were based in Satsuma province (today's western Kagoshima prefecture) but also controlled Osumi (eastern Kagoshima) and Hyuga (Miyazaki). Major clan figures include brothers Shimazu Yoshihisa and Yoshihiro.
After the brothers defeated the Ito clan and brought the three provinces of southern Kyushu under their control, they turned their ambitions northward. They crushed the Otomo clan at the battle of Mimigawa and the Ryuzoji clan at Okita-nawate, but dominion over the entire island was snatched from them at the last minute by troops sent by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Even then, Yoshihiro vowed to fight Hideyoshi's forces to the bitter end, he was not feared as "the Devil Shimazu" for nothing.
The family crest, "Maru-ni-juji", is a simple cross in a circle. A symbol imported from the continent during the Kamakura period centuries before, the cross was held to be a sacred symbol that could ward off misfortune.
