Masiko was the first wife of the Kami Hida, becoming Hida Masiko, and bore him a son, Hida Atarasi.

Kyuden Masiko Edit

In the Dawn of the Empire, the Crab Kami, Hida, encountered a rose-marble palace, overlooking the southernmost ocean shore. Masiko told him this palace once belonged to her family, but now it was ruled by a hungry orochi and the tribes fearfully sacrificed young girls to appease it. Hida and his followers hatched a plan to defeat the beast. The Crab Kami recalled a rice wine that originated from Sakkaku, used by his parents in the Heavens, a potion that intoxicated the mind and befuddled the senses. When the day came for another sacrifice, the orochi plunged its head into a barrel of this brew planted by Hida. At that moment the Kami severed the orochi's neck before its idled senses could detect him. Hida took the palace as his own, naming it Kyuden Masiko in honor of the woman who had captured his heart.

Death Edit

Masiko was loved by Hida for her beauty and perfection, and he refused to teach her the way of battle. Their home was a rose-marble palace called Kyuden Masiko, defended by a hundred of Hida's strongest bushi when he was away. Kyuden Masiko fell to Shadowlands creatures while the Seven Thunders were in the Shadowlands and Hida was fighting 50 miles to the south of his palace. Masiko committed jigai with her kaiken once all the samurai defending the palace had fallen, and her last act was to set the palace ablaze. Although her jigai saved her soul from Fu Leng's Taint, legends said that her mortal shell served in the Shadowlands, and Crab women ever since have preferred to suicide by beheading with a naginata.
