Bayushi Shoju

He is a powerful daimyo, although he is never seen without his mask. He is an exceptionally skilled left-handed duelist, and a keen political strategist.


Shoju married Kachiko in 1114, shortly after the conclusion of the winter court, despite the fact she was already engaged to Hiruma Maruku. Kachiko’s father granted the Scorpion Clan Champion’s request to marry his daughter, and the dispute with Maruku was solved when Doji Hoturi killed the Crab in a duel.

He is the Scorpian Clan Champion (Daimyo of the Scorpian Clan), and guardian of the Empire’s secrets.
