Akodo Tameko was the daughter of Akodo Ranabe.

Appearance and demeanor Edit

Tameko was a young, strong and beautiful maiden, with a keen mind for strategy and skilled with the bow. [1]

True Love Edit

Tameko was engaged to be married but she had an affair with Bayushi Uchinore, the cousin of the Scorpion Clan Champion. The two had a son together, whom Tameko named Tsuruchi, meaning "Little Wasp", and took up residence in Kyuden Ashinagabachi. Uchinore was already married, so Tameko became his concubine. [1] Both the Lion and Scorpion Clans were displeased with their existence, and plans were set in motion by both sides to end their existence. [2]

Death Edit

Uchinore and Tameko were assassinated in 1107. Tsuruchi survived however, and recaptured the castle in 1109. He gained the protection of the Emerald Champion, and founded the Wasp Clan. [2]
