Emperor: The 17th year of the reign of Hantei XXXVIII

Emerald Champion: Doji Satsume

Clan Champions: Hida Kisada (Crab), Doji Satsume (Crane), Togashi Yokuni (Dragon), Akodo Toturi (Lion), Shiba Ujimitsu (Phoenix), Bayushi Shoju (Scorpion), Shinjo Yokatsu (Unicorn)

Death of Akodo Arasou

Lion forces assault Toshi Ranbo wo Shien Shite Reigisaho (Violence behind Courtliness City), a holding the Crane took from the Lion centuries ago. During the fighting, the Lion general Akodo Arasou is killed and their forces retreat from the battle. In the months following the failed attack, Akodo Toturi, Arasou’s older brother, is recalled from his monastery home to become Clan Champion.

Courtly Intrigue

The word in court is that, while Akodo Toturi is rightful heir to the Clan Championship (and who would have been Champion instead of his brother had he not decided to pursue a monastic life), Matsu Tsuko does not acknowledge his position, seeing him as inferior to her late husband.
