Hiruma Maruku 
Born: Unknown 
Died: Unknown 
Siblings: Hiruma Atsumatsi

Hiruma Maruku was the Crab duelist who was originally betrothed to Shosuro Kachiko. [1]

Death Edit

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. [2] 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. [1]

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. [3] Kachiko eventually saved the trial and married Shoju.
