|Please note: This article is about the redeemed ronin. For other uses of the term, please see Saito (disambiguation).|
Saito was appointed as yojimbo for a Crane magistrate sent to the Scorpion lands to receive custody of a criminal. The “criminal” was, in fact, a Shosuro Shinobi who had been caught spying for the Scorpion while in his disguise, and the Clan of Secrets was willing to kill the magistrate rather than let one of their agents fell into the hands of a rival clan. Saito's charge found himself stalled when he tried to find the man in question. 
During this time, Saito met and fell in love with Bayushi Aiko, who knew of the plan to kill the Crane magistrate. Aiko decided to lure Saito away so that he was not with his charge when the assassination took place. Saito returned to his clan in shame, and he was banished for dereliction and became a ronin. He never saw Aiko again. 
Redeemed Honor Edit
Over the next twenty years, Saito labored to redeem himself. He eventually found the Shosuro who had been the cause of his misery, and killed him in a duel sanctioned by an Imperial Magistrate. The Doji accepted him back, and served his clan as a magistrate.
