Genko (farmer) 
Born: Unknown 
Died: Unknown 
Children: Otu (adopted)

Genko was a farmer who lived near the Shinomen Mori, in the area close to Shiro Usagi, castle of the disbanded Hare Clan, upon accusations of maho. [1]

Oda's son Edit

In 1123 Genko was visited by Usagi Oda, the Hare Clan Champion. The Hare was in a brisk to be doomed by the Scorpion Clan and his lord passed his own younger son, Usagi Kinotu, to Genko, and made the farmer promise to protect the boy. Shortly after Oda would die in the Siege of Shiro Usagi. [2]

Otu Edit

Genko took the boy as his son, and named him Otu. In 1125 Otu, who was seven or eight years old, claimed that he had been attacked on the ruins of Shiro Usagi by ghostly samurai. Days later a group of ronin in black masks and black armor burst into Genko's home during night, menacing him and ordering to forget what he and his son had seen in the castle. The next day a group of samurai investigating the issue arrived to his home asking for Otu. Genko, fearing for Otu's life, begged the samurai to leave him be. Anyhow the group questioned Otu who told the incident and showed the place in the ruins where it happened, the meeting room of the late Oda. [3]

Looters exposed Edit

The ronin was a group of Scorpion, also a disbanded clan since the Scorpion Coup. They were led by Soshi Sanru, who was looking for a quick route to power so he could gain retribution. He believed that maho would serve his purpose well, and that there must be something hidden in the ruins that he could use. So they had been digging during night, until Otu witnessed them. [2]

Kinotu's Revealed Edit

The group of samurai learned about the Scorpion activities and thwarted Sanru's plan about killing all those who had been aware of his activities. A true ghost had appeared, of the late Oda, and the investigator exposed Otu as the lost son of the Hare Daimyo. [2]
