Akodo Hirotsu 
Born: Unknown 
Died: Unknown 
Titles: Sensei of the Castle of the Swift Sword Dojo

Akodo Hirotsu was a bushi of the Lion Clan and member of the Matsu Elite Guard. [1]

Station Edit

Hirotsy underwent his gempukku mere weeks before the Scorpion Coup, and when the Akodo family was disbanded shortly afterwards Hirotsu felt that his only choice was to become a deathseeker and redeem his honor through a glorious death. Miracously he survived the Clan War, and was placed among the personal guard of Ikoma Tsanuri upon the end of the war. He served her faithfully until the Battle of Oblivion's Gate where afterwards the Akodo were reinstated, and Akodo Ginawa personally requested Hirotsu to be his yojimbo. Hirotsu accepted without hesitation. [2]

Sensei Edit

Twenty years later he had become the sensei of the Castle of the Swift Sword Dojo, provinding the youth of the Lion with the opportunity to be worthy of calling themselves Lion. Something Hirotsu had sought himself. Hirotsu looked for only one thing in his students, perfection. He had never found it, and was quick to offer suggestions and corrections to his students, but slow to offer praise. He believed that praising a warrior who had not truly earned it weakened the spirit of both the warrior and the teacher. [3] Akodo Jusho, who would become the chief Emerald Magistrate for the Akodo provinces, was one of his most notable students. [4]
