Emperor Angsiyan was the Emperor of Cantha who appointed Shiro Tagachi his bodyguard after noticing his prowess as an assassin. He paid a big price for his trust in Shiro, as he was slain by the very man to whom he entrusted his life.
In the Video contained on the Guild Wars Factions CD, during the scene where Shiro kills him, he has a beard, but in the flashback in the Harvest Temple, he does not have a beard when Shiro kills him, appearing identical to Emperor Kisu instead.
It is suggested in the storyline that the emperor may have been planning to kill Shiro. However, if true, his motives are unknown. In the Nightfall Campaign, it is revealed that the Fortune Teller who told Shiro that the emperor was going to kill him, was in fact a demonic agent of Abaddon.
