March to Volturnum Edit

Rohiteki fought in the War of Spirits against the forces of Hantei XVI. In 1150 she was the person who informed Hida Kuon about the dead of his father Hida Yasamura. [7]

Rohiteki was appointed as the High Priestess of the Temple of Persistence, Sun, and Thunder within Kyuden Hida. [8]

After the death of Kuroda, Hida Kuon called upon Rohiteki to be one of his advisors when he became Crab Clan Champion. [10]

The Crab Counterattack Edit

After six towers of the Kaiu Wall fell to the shadowlands, the Crab eventually launched counter attacks. During the attack against the last tower still occupied by Shadowlands forces, the Fifth Tower, Rohiteki participated in a ritual that called Osano-Wo's aid, and rained jade as a result. [7]

Lost Edit

Rohiteki, alongside Hida Isamu, was responsible for killing Tsuburu no Oni in 1165. She was corrupted almost immediately afterwards when the Rain of Blood occurred, and fell sacrificing herself to protect Isamu. [11]

Joining Daigotsu Edit

In 1167 the Shadow Dragon gathered the bloodspeakers that were without a leader after the death of Iuchiban in 1166. In the City of the Lost they saw how Katsu ordered to kill themselves to all who had followed Iuchiban for years. Only remained those who fell in the Rain of Blood, who were offered to join Daigotsu. Rohiteki, who was looking for a purpose in her new condition, willingly became a servant of the Dark Lord. [12]
