Doji Moro

Doji Moro

Doji Moro was a Kakita-trained samurai-ko and duelist of the Crane Clan.

Siege of the Second City Edit

In 1198, Moro attended winter court in the Second City, during the Siege of the Second City, as a representative of the Empire. [1] She eventually met Akodo Toshigure, and she was fond of the Lion. [2]

Joining the Attackers Edit

During the Siege of the Second City, Doji Yoshitada, Kakita Isao, Doji Moro, Daidoji Ishida and Akodo Toshigure were part of the clan delegates who sided with the Empire against the city's governor. They moved to the north wall of the Imperial District and requested the Second City Guardsmen to surrender the city's gate. Arrows fired by the defenders were turned aside by Isawa Shunsuko's magic. Shortly after the gate disappeared under the volley of thunder and fire sent by the siege weapons known as Renyu's Wrath. [3]

The Duel with Toshigure Edit

When Renyu's Wrath was deployed, Akodo Toshigure was confronted by his nemesis, the duelist Tomoe. As he considered it a dishonourable weapon to use against fellow Rokuganese, the Akodo decided to join efforts with the ronin woman in trying to destroy it. [4] To prevent him from both dishonouring himself, by turning against his erstwhile allies, and potentially damaging the morale of their side, Doji Moro challenged the Lion to a battlefield duel to the first blood, offering her life to him should she lose, in exchange to him being taken prisoner by the Crane should she win. [4] [2]

The duel resulted in a Kharmic strike, with both drawing blood at the same time. With her life indebted to him, Toshigure demanded that she left the field of battle with him, as he would have to abandon it as her prisoner. [2] They spent the rest of the battle together defending the Crane Embassy. [4]

Prisoner of the Unicorn Edit

Sarang captured Moro

Moro is captured

After the Winter Court, Moro was captured by the imperial loyalist Shinjo Sarang. [5] It remains unclear why, since both the Crane and her, personally, were allied with Unicorn, and her loyalties openly laid with the Empire -- even during the Winter Court, rumours began about her friendship with the Topaz Champion Shinjo Tae-hyun. [citation needed]
