Soshi Hamuko was a beauty shugenja of the Scorpion Clan, niece of Soshi Bantaro and liaison to Shosuro Hametsu, the Shosuro Daimyo. Hamuko worked as a courtier on assignment to Kyuden Isawa. [1] Her duty was to gain the favors offered by suitors and kept them just out of reach of their goal. [2]

Ronin Edit

After the Scorpion Coup her life was spared but her name and titles were stripped. After gaining her ronin status his life improved and many other clans have made bids to have him join them. Hamuko refused them all because he had his own plans for his new found ronin status and none of them included selling his Soshi secrets. [3] Hamuko was now in possession of all she desired without any restrictions from her clan or her family, [2] as she told in the essay "Ronin". [1]

Death Edit

After the Second Day of Thunder the Scorpion was reinstated as a Great Clan once more. Hamuko could not stand the thought of a life trapped by the boundaries of clan and refused to rejoin her brethren, that eventually led in her death, murdered by Scorpion agents. [2]
