Sasuke is a ninja in service to Sanada Yukimura, and thus also to Takeda Shingen. He always coolly stands by his master Yukimura and aids him whenever possible. He made a rivalry with Kasuga, a ninja in service to Uesugi Kenshin, an enemy of Shingen.
After Toyotomi Hideyoshi died, Shingen fell ill and Yukimura took control over the Takeda army. Sasuke kept aiding Yukimura, even when he had to make terrible decisions. It's often assumed that Sasuke has a crush on Kasuga, but his feelings toward her are closer to that of a brother's.

Sarutobi Sasuke (猿飛佐助)
There is a legend that Yukimura had 10 ninja in his service – Sanada Ten Brave (真田十勇士 Sanada Juuyuushi?). Sarutobi Sasuke was one of them. Historians have not come to the agreement as to whether the shinobi existed or not. Some consider him a fictional character with no reference to real people; others believe that Sarutobi is the historical character Kozuki Sasuke. Sasuke learned ninjutsu at Kouga – Tozawa Hakuunsai. The name Sarutobi is translated as "monkey jump" consisting of two kanji characters - saru (猿 monkey?) and tobi (飛 jump?). Sasuke was said to have monkey-like agility and speed, especially when climbing trees. Japanese legends describe Sasuke as an orphan adopted and brought up by monkeys, which explains his abilities. Supposedly Sasuke died along with Yukimura in the summer siege of Osaka Castle.
