Bayushi Kasumi was a samurai-ko of the Scorpion Clan.

Scorpion Wall Edit

In 1190 Kasumi was a taisa of the Western Patrols, guardians of the Second Festering Pit. Under his command was Bayushi Utoro, a promising samurai. A Phoenix group lead by the Inquisitor Asako Moeru arrived to investigate the Scorpion Wall defenses and wards at the behest of the Jade Champion. The Scorpion were forced that Moeru, his yojimbo Shiba Jikaro, and the rest of the Phoenix delegations performed their orders. [1]

Murder at the Wall Edit

This year Moeru appeared dead, murdered by an unknown assassin. The death of a guest was a loss of honor too heavy for the Scorpion, who quickly devised a solution. Moeru's entourage was slaughtered by Utoro and his men. Shortly after, the Scorpion Wall suffered a breach provoked by Scorpion agents, from where oni escaped free within the nearby lands. The Scorpion guard destroyed them, and used the demons as scapegoats of the Phoenix butchery. Kasumi refused a further investigation when it was requested by Isawa Taiken, leader of the Firestorm Legion. A Phoenix complaint rendered in the Imperial Court led to the War of the Twins. [1]

War of the Twins Edit

Initial Success Edit

Only days after the Phoenix petition of waging a war had been granted by the Empress Iweko I, Kasumi was promoted, and her unit was one of many that had been secretely sent north, within the Phoenix territory. The enemy had been routed, and the Scorpion had gained a vital foothold in the southern Shiba provinces. Ten months later the city of Nikesake was seized by the Scorpion. In 1191 the city was retaken by the Phoenix in the Battle of Nikesake, led by the genius mind of Shiba Mitsushen. [1]

Bleeding the Agasha Edit

This year the commander Yogo Haruto set a plan to bleed one of the Phoenix families, the Agasha. Utoro's detachment reached Kyuden Agasha before the Festival of Leaves began. When the festival finished, explosives planted by Shosuro Hawado within the Phoenix stroghold were set, cleaning the entrance to Kyuden Agasha. The Fall of Kyuden Agasha was won by the Scorpion through ninja sabotage. [1]

Death Edit

Kasumi died in 1193 when leading a suicidal attack against the Shiba Army's command group. Ofuda prepared by her general Yogo Haruto, created a billowing cloud of thick, and any samurai within the greenish smoke was phisically sick the second they came in. She was cut down by Shiba Jikaro, but Kasumi in her dying effort wounded Shiba Mitsushen with a poisoned dagger. The Phoenix general died shortly after. Despite his death, the Phoenix gained the day following Mitsushen's plan. [1]
