Hida Shuhai 
Born: Unknown 
Died: Unknown 
Children: Un-named son

Hida Shuhai was a bushi of the Crab Clan.

Infamous Order Edit

Shuhai was in his sixties when he received the order to end his life throwing himself into a deep chasm in the Shadowlands, which would be known as the Sixty-Year Chasm. His daimyo, Hida Renchi, had realized Oni used to impersonate elders, and he wished to eliminate that trick. In this way Renchi also rid his lands of the burden of hundreds of people too old to fight. [1]

Killing an Oni Edit

Crafty Shuhai hid from Renchi's troops, but followed them to the Shadowlands. He saw the Crab slaughtered by an unknown type of Oni, then returned to tell his son of the oni's appearance and weaknesses. Shuhai proved his worthy seeking and killing the oni with his son, a knowledge which would save hundreds of Crab lives. Renchi rescinded the order and committed seppuku. [1]
