Battles of Rokugan

The Battle of the Northern Wall Mountains was fought between a massive army of undead and bloodspeakers and the Sezaru's hunter army.

Preparations Edit

The Emperor Toturi III authorized Isawa Sezaru to commandeer whatever resources he desired to combat the Bloodspeakers. All shugenja in Rokugan were commanded to offer their magical aid in his hunt, even the Jade Champion, Asahina Sekawa was subject to Sezaru. An imprisoned bloodspeaker confessed that there was to be a gathering of many prominent Bloodspeakers in the Northern Wall Mountains. [2]

Battle Edit

The assembled forces of Sezaru's Asako Inquisitors marched alongside with a force of Utaku Battle Maidens, but Sezaru ordered his forces to withdraw when he saw the overwhelming numbers of undead and bloodspeakers. A smaller group of Bloodspeakers attacked and the Wolf's army could not retreat. Sezaru and his men were pinned in the mountains, attacked by a far more sizeable force. They battled the massive force of Bloodspeakers led by Jama Suru and Mohai. When Mohai and Jama Suru attacked the Wolf's army, Sezaru had been already drained much of his power destroying the undead legions. Sezaru saw only one way to achieve the win, but with a great cost: the inner demon of Sezaru was unleashed. What had been contained during years of peace and mercy exploded in an instant. A storm of fire, wind, and void swirled around Sezaru, destroying Mohai immediately. Jama Suru survived and approached to kill a fallen Sezaru, but the Wolf cast an earth spell that destroyed the abomination. Sezaru had barely survived and had killed the two bloodspeaker leaders. [2]

New of the battle in the Empire Edit

Utaku Rishimaru had sent words of the battle to Kyuden Isawa and the Council of Five, but she marched when the battle was unconcluded. [2]

Aftermath Edit

Isawa Sezaru disappeared from Rokugan, and the Empire had no news of him for a time. He had been aided by Iuchi Katamari, the Doomseeker, and both marched to the Burning Sands to know more about the khadi. [2]
