Doji Nariko was a Legendary Beauty of the Crane Clan.

Legend Edit

On the day of her gempukku, a vision of Lady Doji asked a simple vow, that she would only marry once. Nariko agreed, and married a handsome Kakita lord. Hantei XVI, the Steel Chrysanthemum, took a fancy to her and sent her husband on a suicide mission among the Yobanjin tribes. Nariko was forced to marry him, her vow broken. [1]

Death Edit

Nariko threw herself from the cliffs of the White Stag. A young Otomo poet who had also fallen in love with her beauty wrote a song in tribute to her courage, that quietly spread among those who stood against the cruel Emperor. Doji Nariko was remembered as a hero and a shrine in her memory was built. [1]
