People

Doji Yuo of House Morehei was a daimyo of the Morehei, vassal of the Doji.

Morehei Island Edit

Yuo had a palace on an island just offshore of Mura Sabishii Toshi. The palace was a favourite summer home of the nobility of the Doji and Kakita families, and in the bay of the island was a large bronze statue of Suitengu, the Fortune of the Sea. [1]

Growing Edit

The island had few natural resources , so Yuo had transformed Shinden Morehei into a center of luxury, a favored place of relaxation and retreat for many prominent Crane. Sadly, the Morehei began to neglect the Temple of Suitengu, so the vengeful Fortune of the Sea delivered a warning to Yuo through a dream, but the arrogant samurai ignored it. [2]

Sunk Edit

In 8th century there was a tremendous earthquake that sunk the island into the sea. The city disappeared beneath the waves, but the statue's shoulders and head still stood above water and had come to be known as the "Sea King" by passing sailors. Pearl divers claimed the village that was there still stood, but where the palace stood was only a giant fissure in the ground. [1] It was said that Suitengu had punished Yuo for his foolish pride. [2] The Shipping Lane that connected Kyuden Doji with Ookami Toshi was named Sea King's Road after him. [3]

After Death Edit

When the earthquake struck, the greedy daimyo ran to the central vault of Shinden Morehei, to be with his treasures. He died there, and he was bound with them forever as a shozaigaki. [2]
