Akodo Shakato was the Lion Clan Champion who led the Lion in 582 when the Crane Clan went to war with them. Shakato had victory within his grasp, and the Crane were retreating leaving a direct route to Kyuden Kakita, when an old samurai and his two elderly retainers charged through the Crane and into the Lion. The Crane rallied and won the day. The old samurai had been Doji Hotei, the former Crane Clan Champion, and he died on that battlefield surrounded by his two retainers and the Lion. [1]
