katsu 勝 to win

The warlord Kikkawa Hiroie 吉川広家 (1561~1625) carried a statue of a deity to win a battle in a small shrine on a cord around his neck. During the battle of Sekigahara he never fought, but clutched his amulet and prayed for the battle to end without a fight for him and his lord, Mori Terumoto. Hiroie's grandfather had given him the amulet with the words
"The Mori Clan should never be involved in a battle!".

quote
Hiroie was Kikkawa Motoharu's son and succeeded his elder brother Motonaga when the latter died in 1587. He ruled the former Amako domain (now Izumo) and was one of the most powerful men in the Môri clan, later leading troops under his cousin Môri Terumoto in the 1st and 2nd Korean Campaigns.

When sides were being drawn between Ishida Mitsunari and Tokugawa Ieyasu, Hiroie urged Terumoto to side with the latter, a recommendation that Terumoto did not specifically decline (despite going along with Ishida), thus prompting Hiroie to send a secret message to Ieyasu to the effect that he could count on the Môri to do nothing in the coming fight.

In the Battle of Sekigahara, Hiroie, with 3,000 men, occupied the lead position in the Môri army deployed on the east side of Mt. Nangû - when the fighting began he refused to move, thus preventing Môri Hidemoto (with 15,000 men) from entering the fray. After the battle, Hiroie was disappointed to discover that Ieyasu had no intention of rewarding the Môri for their inactivity, though he did increase Hiroie's own fief somewhat. Hiroie built Iwakuni castle in 1608.
