Seconding The Pale Horse
And Black Wind fits I think. There's also a major character in The Voynich Hotel that fits your criteria, but the setting isn't historical or oppressive.
Oh, and Majo no Shinzou, sort of. Though I don't think anyone's r ...

Hm... you could try doing a search for shounen-ai + slice-of-life too, since as mentioned most things in the LGBT character in a non-BL/GL manga category have those characters only as a side character.
Mainichi Seiten! has some of this, I think, though the first story itself is nothing special, the stories get progressively sweeter as you go on, so you should give it a try if you haven' ...

Rain (fantasy), there's magic in the world too, though

For slice-of-lifes, you really can't go wrong with Aqua and its sequel Aria. It's really one of those mangas that help you notice all the beautiful, little things in life.

Clamp loves, loves this trope. So if you haven't read some of their things yet, well, now's the time.

Anne Freaks fits, though your mileage may vary with this one because the protagonists are not really redeeming in any way whatsoever.
Bloody Cross sort of fits, though she isn't really a schemer or anything.
Claymore fits, I think. A lot less strategy here an ...

I would definitely second Pet Shop of Horrors though there is definitely some gore-ish parts in there, so be warned! It's a great psychological-esque horror, though, and I really enjoyed it.
Also, as much as I love Parasyte, I would just like to point out that it' ...

Basically anything by Urasawa Naoki. I see you've read Monster, so I would definitely recommend also checking out 20th Century Boys, Pluto, and Billy Bat.
Coppelion also has some really great tension present in the manga, and the first episode of the anime ...

This is kind of a long shot, but I remember I myself used to get X confused with Kamui a lot, so maybe it's that? The main character's name isn't Kamui, but he does leave his clan in order to search for Okikurumi, and it is set in a post-apocalyptic ...

Seconding Aria (and its prequel Aqua). It's definitely the first manga I thought of when I saw this thread. And another refreshing manga of the same vein would be Ritou no Umi.
Otherwise, I've always found that Kakinouchi Narumi had a great talent for ...
