Hida Renchi was a minor daimyo of the Crab Clan.

Infamous Order Edit

He realized Oni used to impersonate elders, and Renchi wished to eliminate that trick. He ordered all people over age sixty be thrown into a deep chasm in the Shadowlands, which would be known as the Sixty-Year Chasm. In this way he also rid his lands of the burden of hundreds of people too old to fight. [1]

Death Edit

Hida Shuhai was an aged but crafty bushi who hid from Renchi's troops. He proved his worthy seeking and killing a unknown type of oni, who had killed the troops Renchi had sent to the chasm. This knowledge would save hundreds of Crab lives, so Renchi rescinded the order and committed seppuku. [1]
