Bayushi Karyudo was a bushi and duelist of the Scorpion Clan.

Betrothed Edit

At the end of the Winter Court of 1199, Karyudo became betrothed to Iweko Miaka, the Empress' daughter [1] [2], who was set to marry into the Scorpion Clan in two years and losing her station as Imperial princess afterwards. [3] He brought with him Agasha Kyokuta and his betrothed, the famous poet Yasuki Keirohime, to ensure that the story of their great love was laid down by her. [4]

Miaka's Travel Edit

In the Month of the Hare of 1200 Iweko Seiken arranged that once he was crowned as Emperor Iweko II, Miaka would travel to the Scorpion lands. The Scorpion expected she would be interested in visiting several locations, strategic points along the path of Lion's attack. Miaka's presence would held the Lion forces at bay. [5]

Rise of Jigoku Edit

In 1200 the rebellious Spider Clan had the upperhand in their goal to rule the Empire. Bayushi Nitoshi offered to the enemy leader Daigotsu Kanpeki his services, and the services of half of his Clan. The Scorpion Clan Champion had delivered to Kanpeki the heads of the Crane Clan Champion Doji Makoto and the Phoenix Clan Champion Shiba Tsukimi to prove his allegiance. The Crane Clan suggested that Miaka's betrothal to Karyudo had already been dissolved by Seiken himself, and that a secret bounty had been issued on Karyudo's head. Shortly after the Spider stormed Toshi Ranbo, and the Phoenix used the spell Walking the Way to took the Emperor, his bride Hida Ayameko, Shibatsu and Miaka to a secret location. Nitoshi and his Clan were instrumental to secure the Iweko family, denying Kanpeki's real target, Iweko II. Karyudo had decided to stay, as the spell would require less time with less travelers - but Bayushi Nitoshi's last order to Bayushi Fuyuko was to instruct Karyudo to go with Miaka and the Imperial Family, as Nitoshi would be the one buying the time needed for the spell to be cast.
