Born: Unknown

Parents: Akodo Masahisa

Akodo Masaumi was the son of the Lion Clan Champion Akodo Masahisa.

Great Famine Edit

The Great Famine suffered in the Empire forced many Dragon refugees to leave their mountains to cross the Drowned Merchant River, entering in the Lion lands. Masahisa was concerned and sent his Masaumi to Shiro Mirumoto in 662, where he got an audience with the Dragon Clan Champion Togashi Toshimasa. The meeting went wrong when Toshimasa did not acknowledge Masaumi. It was apparent that Toshimasa had been entered in meditation since 661 and he did not spoke to any who visit him since. [1]

War with the Dragon Edit

An outraged Masaumi crossed the border with the Lion Clan Army and attacked, which marked the start of the Dragon-Lion War. He was confronted by the Mirumoto Army led by the Mirumoto Daimyo Mirumoto Umeka. The Battle of Drowned Merchant River was indecisive, and the conflict escalated when the Phoenix sent forth the Shiba House Guard to aid the Dragon. In the last weeks of the year a truce, and later a peaceful agreement was arranged. [2]

People's Legion Edit

In 665 the Dragon refugees were again an issue, so the Lion crossed the border to clear it out. Small bodies of Lion troops were unexpectedly confronted and defeated by an army of revolters and peasants, the called People's Legion. The Lion were forced to withdraw all the troops from the Dragon lands and began to defend the former lands of the Ki-Rin Clan when the Legion invaded the northwest of Rokugan. [3]

Death Edit

Masaumi committed seppuku after his army was defeated by the revolters at Bikami. [3]
