Ashiryo Ataka 
Born: Unknown 
Died: Unknown 
Titles: Hamana Governor

Ashiryo Ataka [1] was the governor of the Lion Hamana province during the Clan War. An unknown ronin was brought to his presence to explain a sake house brawl, where the wave man had bested a local magistrate, Ujikeme. The yoriki Ashiryo Hijiko told the ronin defeated her fellow with his bare hands, and Ataka promoted her as his karo and chief Magistrate on the spot. Ataka offered the ronin to fill the gap as yoriki, and the Lion governor did not hesitated when he told his true identity, as Ginawa, wielder of the wicked Bloodsword Revenge. [2]

Death Edit

Hijiko, Ginawa, and the shugenja Isawa Tadaka returned to Ataka's state and reported the governor the outcome and events about a skirmish between Lion and Crane Clan. He was informed that an arrow guided by a magical spell had killed the Crane general. Before Ataka could give any command he was killed by a shuriken, thrown by a hidden ninja. [3]
