Hato, most known as Dove, was a ronin yojimbo of Ryoko Owari Toshi.

Nickname Edit

In 1115 [1] Hato was hired by the Crab Clan to accompany the scouts who would sneak into the Shadowlands. The Crab Clan Champion Hida Kisada had heard rumors of a Shadowlands army forming and wished to have reports while he was gathering an army. The scouting party was decimated by an army led by Moto Tsume, and Hato was the only who survived. Her hair became white. [2]

Opium Edit

Dove moved to Ryoko Owari, where the opium was cheaper, and became an addict smoker. She tried to forget what the Dark Moto said to her, "“I’ll be back for you." She quickly built up a resistance to the drug, and the opium no longer cured her fear of Tsume. In 1122 Dove knew she would either have to kill herself or quit opium, so she kicked the drug habit. [3]

Bodyguard Edit

Dove worked as a bodyguard, and once she killed one member of the Strong Arm Firemen and three Fire Eaters to protect her charge, a merchant who quickly moved to Garden Under Shadow City. [4]

Opium War Edit

In 1122 the Opium War began with several strikes in all the opium cartels. Sharp, the frontman of the Bayushi cartel was nervous and hired Dove as bodyguard. [5]
