Akodo Segitomo was a general and sensei of the Lion Clan who retired as the monk Hesshu, founder of the monastic sect known as Followers of the Way.

Sensei Edit

Segitomo was a renowned general of the Lion Clan in the 7th century, distinguishing himself in many battles against the Crane. Retired from active service, he was sent to found a branch of the Akodo Bushi school in the northern Lion lands. He opened the customary copy of Tao of Shinsei any dojo had to have since the Dawn of the Empire, having a revelation with the first sentence he read:

“All things are necessary – war, peace, the edge of the sword, and the sound of a poem. With understanding, all things are one.”
-Tao of Shinsei


Segitomo became convinced there was no meaningful distinction between Akodo's way and Shinsei's, the two things were one. [1]

Monk Edit

Segitomo was dismissed for his persistence to teach this philosophy among his students, in a clan who disdained the Tao as irrelevant to their concerns. He retired as the monk Hesshu and founded the Followers of the Way, which had as its primary concern to persuade other Lion samurai. [1]
