Doji Hibariko was the daughter of a minor, strict traditionalist noble of the of the Doji family. She was small and 'weak', and being in the shadow of older brother, Doji Tsubakito, her father saw in her nothing more than a potential political marriage. Hibariko was stung by her father's scorn, but learned to turn it aside with a downcast gaze and soft words. 
By the time of her gempukku, she was being sent around to various courts in hopes of finding a political match. There, she caught the eye of Doji Ayano, a courtier known for her dedication to Honor. Ayano saw in Hibariko a potential peer in the Doji Innocents, and arranged for the young woman to be accepted in the courtier schools of the Doji, an honor her father could not deny her. Returning to the courts, she found that her demeanor and skills would help her blend in, making her less of a threat in the eyes of others, allowing her to hear much that would not be said in front of a more noticeable courtier.
In time, Hibariko found that she had been betrothed in a political marriage, this time to a young Scorpion courtier as part of negotiations concerning trade on the River of Gold. She journeyed to meet her new fiancée with an open mind, but found that he represented every bad trait she had known in her father, in addition to the stereotypes of his clan. Hibariko would not fail her duties to her clan and her new husband, but that would not prevent her from making Bayushi Hisoka's life a living hell.
