Toshi enraged and never forgave him it. Ichiro's father, Asako Itsuo, also was angry, and their relationship suffered and became ill from that day. Toshi turned the other students against Ichiro and his childhood was terrible from that day on. He never talked again about his prophecies and grew as an isolated and eccentric boy. [1]

She saw one written time ago about the Return of the Ki-Rin. [1]

Prophecy Edit

He had another vision this day: A city, lost in the depths of darkness. A temple dedicated to a sinister god who murdered Fortunes as a samurai slaughters unarmed peasants. Invincible in the heavens, only in the mortal world could his power be broken. A Dark Lord, his face masked in white, the last legacy of a fallen Emperor, guarded the key to the god's defeat. His faith was the fulcrum upon which all others rested. Four Winds gathered to face him. None of them alone could overcome him, and his armies were vast. [1]

Death Edit

In 749 Akiro was visited again by his cousin. On top of the cliff he revealed his decision to send all the prophecies he had recorded and collected in his satchel to the Elemental Masters or to the Emperor, hoping its knowledge could avoid some future destruction or threats. Mariko stabbed him in the stomach, and tried to reach the scrolls. With his last breath, Asako Akiro took the only defiant action of his life and hurled himself from the cliff, plummeting hundreds of feet to the jagged rocks below, clutching his satchel of prophecies as he fell. [1]

Jama Suru Edit

Mariko met her master, Jama Suru and explained the final of her cousin. Suru filled the chasm with rocks to avoid the prophecy scrolls could be retrieved by anybody. [1]
