Please note: This article is about the taisa involved in the fights for control of Naishou province. For other uses of the term, please see Itaru (disambiguation).

Bayushi Itaru was a taisa of the Scorpion Clan.

Demeanor Edit

Itaru was well educated, a veteran of several battles, a dangerous duelist, an excellent conversationalist, and a favorite of many young ladies at court. He hid from the public eye his addiction to opium. [1]

Naishou Province Edit

Scorpion Claim Edit

In 1198 the Phoenix governor of the Naishou province died under mysterious circumstances. [2] Itoru was chosen to lead the Scorpion campaign to claim Naishou province based on an alleged Scorpion heir to the previous Governor. Itaru challenged Doji Ayumi, at the time a Lion force arrived, escorting Miya Ansho as the appointed Imperial governor, interrupting their feud. [3]

Imperial Control Edit

The new Governor had appointed the Scorpion to oversee the villages of the province, and his direct subordinate, Shosuro Kanetsuru, was appointed at Shizu Mura, while Itaru remained at court. [4] Since then Itaru had abandoned the armor of the warrior and donned the kimono of the courtier, switching effortlessly between the two roles. Itaru hoped to be installed as the next Governor. [5]
