Bayushi Kiwadoi was a rikugunshokan of the Scorpion Clan, and Topaz Champion the year of her gempukku. [1]

Gakka Province Edit

Kiwadoi was in command of the Scorpion forces who had taken control of the Gakka province, and had user her contacts to have her actions endorsed by Ayushi, the influential Abbot of Four Temples. The old courtier Ikoma Jun outmaneuvered her using dishonorable means, such as recruiting a Scorpion traitor who gave up relevant information, and even coercing Ayushi into withdrawing his support. Despite they were rivals, they met together and pondered the ma paint of Hiruma Renzo, who disapproved the impending war between both clans once the snow thawed. Kiwadoi had ordered her brother and reviled butcher, Bayushi Konitsu, to take the field. This action would diminish Kiwadoi's reputation, while Jun one would rise. In turn, Jun's actions had let Kiwadoi to obtain secrets of her own, that the Lion was capable of the most dark deeds, an information she would use for her advantage in the future. [2]

Expected Defeat Edit

Her actions would force Ikoma Jun to respond and the Crab might be forced to enter the fray. [4]
