When Scorpion Clan Champion Bayushi Shoju saw Kachiko's beauty and decided to marry her himself, Maruku challenged Kachiko's father Shosuro Koshurin to a duel over the changing of the marital arrangements. A young Doji Hoturi stepped in for Koshurin and fought for Kachiko's honor cutting Maruku in two, despite the Crab was considered one of the finest duelists of Rokugan.  Maruku had been manipulated by Kakita Yoshi, who had told of the Scorpion maiden's unfaithfulness, and to spread rumors of a baby already in her womb. 
The Kuni Daimyo Kuni Yori claimed the arrangement was still valid, and that Kachiko had to marry Maruku's brother, Hiruma Atsumatsi, even by force.  Kachiko eventually saved the trial and married Shoju.
