Please note: This article is about the courtier and great player of shogi. For other uses of the term, please see Shen (disambiguation).

Bayushi Shen was a prominent courtier of the Scorpion Clan in the 9th century, only below the Imperial Chancellor himself. He was one of the greatest Shogi players of his generation. During games, Shen used his customary psychological assault, teasing his opponent, so he could take advantage when they lose their focus, leading in an inevitable victory. [1]

Winter Court Edit

During Winter Court at Kyuden Bayushi Shen challenged diplomat Kitsuki Hideo, one of the first members of the fledging Kitsuki family. The Dragon kept his cool and setting his own pace defeated Shen. The Scorpion had lost only a handful of games over the course of a few decades of service. This game was a demonstration of Dragon tenacity. [1]
