Hida Kirazai of House Moshibaru was a former ronin bushi who joined the Crab Clan. In truth he was Daigotsu Kirazai, a member of the Spider Clan who infiltrated the Crab Clan.

RoninEdit

A large child, Kirazai was the son of another ronin. Under his father's tutelage, he learned the ways of the blade and the path of an honorable ronin. But during the War of the Rich Frog, they served as mercenaries of the Lion Clan, only to be used as part of a group to absorb the assault of a unit of Utaku family Battle Maidens. The death of his father caused Kirazai to fly into an unstoppable rage resulting in the death of all the Battle Maidens. He then turned and left the service of the Lion forever. [1]

BanditEdit

No longer seeing the path of the honorable ronin being for him, he soon found himself part of a group of bandits raiding Lion caravans on the Crane border. Then one day, the bandits were attacked by samurai bearing an unknown mon. The samurai attacked with no mercy, but Kirazai fought back the same. Soon, only he and a single samurai-ko of the attackers were left. Facing him, she talked to him, telling him of another possible path. It is unknown if her words broke through to him, or that he was simply too tired to continue fighting, but in the end he followed her. [1]

Spider among the CrabEdit

In time, the Spider Clan sent him to infiltrate the Crab Clan. Taking advantage of a Twenty Goblin Winter, he was offered a place in the Moshibaru vassal family. Serving on the Kaiu Wall, he made many friends and contacts within the Crab. Though this was not without incident, as he suffered a long term wound to his leg and the loss of an eye caused by a mysterious explosion during an unexpected Shadowlands attack. This was only a minor setback to him as he planned his part in the fall of the Great Clans. [1]

Kirazai's mission was to infiltrate the Moshibaru and subvert their members. Ronin who joined the Crab for fellowship were taken aside by Kirazai, who would then highlight the ronin's differences from his comrades and bring the ronin's faults into the open. Ronin who joined to fight the Shadowlands would find an agreeing voice from Kirazai. Kirazai made sure to direct as much of the samurai's rage against the Shadowlands at the oni and other creatures. His hope was that such samurai would not view the Lost, and thus the Spider, with hostility. [2]
