Hida Masatari

Hida Masatari

Hida Masatari was a Crab Clan bushi.

Veteran Edit

He fought against the Scorpion Clan during the hostilities of 1169 during the Crab-Scorpion War. [1] Masatari was a gunso veteran of one-hundred and seven battles on the Kaiu Wall. [2] He took Daidoji Gempachi under his wing, shielding the Crane against those who rendered Gempachi unfit for duty. [3]

Shinomen Mori Edit

In 1170 Masatari was under the command of Toritaka Kaiketsu during a mission in the Shinomen Mori. [2] They were attacked with arrows shortly after his commander had been talking with a Unicorn patrol. [4] They chased the Unicorn and eventually reched the slower Unicorn infantry. Masatari asked surrender to their leader, Shinjo Isuke, who refused and made their last stance against impossible odds. Kaiketsu saw no bows in the Crab forces, so he came to the conclusion that these men were not the ones who attacked the Crab. Masatari retorted and his face was crossed by Kaiketsu. The Unicorn samurai had confronted a vastly superior force without fear, gave no quarter, did not retreat, did not surrender, so was not those cowards who attacked with arrows and fled. The Crab tended their wounded and the dead men of both sides. [2] No Unicorn survived in the skirmish. [5]
