|Titles:||Hoshi Daimyo |
Leader of the Order of Hoshi
Early Years Edit
As an infant, Wayan was abandoned at a small temple in Dragon lands. The boy was raised in the order's martial techniques and the study of the Tao of Shinsei, reaching enlightenment at the age of seventeen, an unprecedented accomplishment.
Order of Hoshi Edit
Hitomi's Purge Edit
After Togashi died in the Second Day of Thunder, Hitomi became the new Dragon Clan Champion and began a purge to those who did not take the Hitomi name. Wayan was among the first to joine the Order of Hoshi, created by Togashi's son, Togashi Hoshi. Wayan became the Hoshi de facto leader, second only to Lord Hoshi. 
The Togashi's Daisho had been stolen by Kokujin in 1132, and in 1133, Wayan had accepted a suggestion from Hitomi Kobai to aid in the hunt for the traitor Kokujin.  Wayan hunted Kokujin with no success. Several of his former students had sought to destroy the corrupted Kikage Zumi only to die in doing so or become Kokujin's disciples. 
Leader of the Hoshi Edit
Hunting Kokujin Again Edit
In 1154, a group of 40 sohei led by Hoshi Maseru and Hoshi Kaelung were defeated by Kokujin and two hundred bakemono on the Plains Above Evil. Kaelung, the sole survivor, returned to Shinden Hoshi to report to Wayan. Wayan would not heed Kaelung's advice, causing the monk to leave the Hoshi family. 
"Once your wounds are healed, we will hunt the madman again. Next time, we will be prepared."
Kokujin's Challenge Edit
Wayan was one of the seven Dragon Clan samurai who answered Kokujin's Challenge in 1159. Shortly after entering the Twilight Mountains the group were ambushed by dozens of tattooed bakemono led by Kokujin Kobai.  Wayan was grievously injured in the ensuing battle, and was saved from being eaten by bakemono thanks to the intervention of Togashi Matsuo and Mirumoto Rosanjin.  Matsuo used his knowledge of herbalism to heal Wayan, but the old monk's wounds were so severe that only a shugenja would be able to save his life. Rosanjin and Matsuo began scouting the nearby area for signs of their other captured allies when they encountered Heichi Jianzhen, a shugenja. 
"If you will not let me die in peace then I have no choice but to live."
Jianzhen used her magic to save Wayan's life.  As soon as Wayan was well enough he was chosen by Matsuo and Rosanjin to deliver a message to the Crab Clan informing them of the events transpiring in the Twilight Mountains. Wayan protested, but Matsuo and Rosanjin's reasoning won through. 
"Carry the Fortunes then, Togashi Matsuo. I would hate to return with an army of Crab and find that you have been forced into slavery as Kobai was. I do not think I can bear to kill another friend."
Losing his Center Edit
Each failure in seeking Kokujin weighed heavily upon Wayan'ss soul, and he was no longer the enlightened soul he once was. Kokujin's madness has robbed Wayan his inner gift, but he accepted that fact so long as he would live to see the day when Kokujin was finally destroyed. 
Hoshi Trading House Edit
Kaelung's Return Edit
In 1166 Wayan was with the Dragon Clan Champion, Togashi Satsu, and his wife, Togashi Misuko, in the High House of Light. The oulaw Kaelung had arrived seeking forgiveness. He confessed his kolat membership, and he explained the kolat plot involved kidnapping Satsu's wife. Kaelung already had ambushed the assassins and killed them all, fouling the plot. Satsu told he had foreseen the plot, but let the people involved to act freely. Kaelung had been proven worthy and was allowed to join the Hoshi once more and the Dragon Clan. 
War of Silk and Steel Edit
Jade Mirror Edit
In 1168 the heads of the three tattooed orders, Hitomi Kagetora, Wayan, and Togashi Nyima representing his lord and Champion Togashi Satsu, made a meeting in the Togashi's Shrine. A powerful nemuranai, the Jade Mirror, had been recently retrieved by the Dragon Clan. Satsu asked then to deliberate as to whether the item should be used, and if so, how. 
Dissolving the Hoshi Edit
The Hoshi monks were growing distant, Wayan rarely spoke, and when he did it was as if his mind were elsewhere. Some of the Hoshi did not speak at all, and showed no sign they heared what was spoken to them. Satsu had detected an imbalance within both the Hitomi family and the Hoshi.  The orders' connection to their patrons, both Lady Moon and the Celestial Wanderer, was the source of their ailment. A direct connection to the Heavens such as that created by pure divine blood was too much for the mortal soul to bear without being adversely affected. In 1169 Satsu announced the unification the three families in the Togashi family, and began tattooing the members of the Hoshi and Hitomi with his own blood in an attempt to restore the balance. 
Wayan did not attend his Lord summoning. Wayan had drifted away from his kin, and all of humanity. He did not answer the summons because he no longer saw the relevance in doing so. Hoshi Wayan barely recognized the real world, anymore. He was becoming introspective to such a degree that he would likely become a hermit, to live out his days pondering the inner world, completely excluding the outer.
