Akodo Kurogane was a bushi and tactician of the Lion Clan.

Seikitsu Pass Edit

In 1171 an earthquake near Seikitsu Pass impeded the movement of supplies and forces from the Unicorn lands to the southern front in the Destroyer War. Kurogane led a small force into the region to assure the proper logistics and supplies. The Scorpion Clan willingly suported the Lion officer in his duties. [1]

Empress' Guard Edit

In 1172 Kurogane was a member of the Empress' Guard. He oversaw Taishuu, Daigotsu's follower and ambassador to the Empire. [2]

Regicide attempt and death Edit

During the opening of the winter court, within the Imperial Throne room, a group of gaijin ruhmalists followers of Kali-Ma had managed to infiltrate. They uncovered and attacked the attendants, trying to kill the Empress and the Empress' Chosen. Kurogane was alongside Ikoma Tobikuma standing at post at the foot of the dais. Kurogane confronted the assassins who overwhelmed him and died. [3]

Shrine Edit

Kurogane was interred alongside the Protector of the Imperial City Bayushi Norachai, who was mortally wounded in the fight. Upon his deathbed, when informed of the shrine that would be his within a temple at Toshi Ranbo, Norachai requested that those guards who fell beside him be interred alongside him. [4]
