Karitono plotted to shame Ikoma Komori both in court and on the battlefield, but was defeated at every turn. Their Blood Feud culminated when the Scorpion forced Komori into a position where he would die and protect his son and heir, or live and stop the death of a key Matsu general at the hands of Karitono. Komori duped the Scorpion into believing he had chosen to save his son, but two days later ambushed Karitono on the cliffs of Otosan Uchi where the Scorpion had planned the assassination of the Matsu. Both men fell to their deaths in the struggle, and Karitono was foiled by his enemy a final time.
