The Scorpion Clan Champion was the daimyo of the Scorpion Clan, and was often nicknamed the "Lord of Secrets" within the clan. [1]

Secrets Edit

During one thousand years the Scorpion daimyo was the only one who knew where the twelve Black Scrolls were located.

Since the reign of Bayushi Oshiso until the second Day of Thunder the Scorpion daimyo was the only who knew the true identity of the Dragon Clan Champion, the kami Togashi. They used to seek his counsel and to learn those secrets Togashi allowed them to know. [2]

Non Scorpion "Champions" Edit

One time in recorded history, the Scorpion Clan Champion was not a Scorpion. Following a battle between the Crab and Scorpion where both champions died, the Emperor at the time was so furious that he did not accept the rule of the next Champions. Instead he temporarily appointed two Seppun sozokunin, or Acting Champions, to rule until the next Winter Court to ensure the differences were resolved without more bloodshed.[3]
