Horiuchi Wakiza was a water shugenja of the Unicorn Clan.

Orphan Edit

Wakiza was born in a small village in the norhtern Lion border within a family of Kitsu Shugenja. When she was an infant her parents were killed in a border skirmish with the Dragon, and Wakiza was cared by an ashigaru woman who eventually became a servant of a bandit gang while fleeing. The ronin and woman were killed by Unicorn magistrates, so an Horiuchi Shugenja took custody of her. Wakiza learned the Unicorn customs and fashion, knowing nothing of her Kitsu ancestry. [1]

Trgic Shugenja Edit

Cursed Edit

Her sensei, Horiuchi Senzhi, learned that Wakiza's father had wronged another shugenja before she was born, and Wakiza carried a curse. Any of her achievements would be countered by a another, less fortunate incident. The day Wakiza was to travel to the Topaz Championionship, Senzhi was trampled to death by a horse. [1]

Topaz Champion Edit

Wakiza attended the Topaz Championship in 1167, beating her fellow Unicorn Shinjo Dun in the final. [2] The tournament that year was marred by the accusations of Doji Akiko being a member of the Gozoku and the death of Akiko and Doji Kurohito. [3]

Horiuchi Demise Edit

In 1171, during the Plague War, the Horiuchi lands were put to torch to content a plague outbreak. [4] Wakiza was one of the few survivors, but everyone remembered Horiuchi Nobane instead. After that tragedy, Wakiza dedicated to trying to find a cure for the plague. [5]

Death Edit

In 1198 Nobane died, who had been considered the last of his family. [6] Therefore Wakiza had already passed away before that time.
