Shinjo Mako was once a retainer of Lady Shinjo, and after her departure he became a member of the Fox Clan, as Kitsune Mako, and later a retainer of Domogu. When Domogu was granted the family name Ichiro, Mako became Ichiro Mako.

Appearance Edit

Mako was thick, with bowed legs which supported a huge chest, short arms but corded with muscle. His was a whirlwind in battle and his martial prowess was well known to all. [1]

Empire's North Border Edit

After the Ki-Rin Clan left the Empire through the Trail of Woe, the Emperor realized an attacker could enter from the pass, so he decided to appoint guards for the northern border of Rokugan. Several of the Kami argued to be the most prepared for the duty, but in 110 it was Mako who suggested a duel of strength to decide the issue. [1] She was at that time a member of the fledging Fox Clan, Kitsune Mako. [2]

Tournament Edit

Each clan chose one champion to vie for the honor of the position, and to the winner would go the land surrounding the passes and the sacred duty to protect the fledgling empire's northern border. Mako stepped forward for the Ki-Rin, to be defeated by Domogu, a member of the Hida family. [3]

Badger Clan Edit

Mako became Domogu's first retainer in the fledgling Badger Clan. He aided him to build the defensive fortress over the pass, and after his plans were approved by the Emperor in 115, Domogu was granted the Ichiro family, so Mako became Ichiro Mako. [4] Mako was not an extraordinary leader, but he was a tireless and trustworthy lieutenant. Much of the Badger Clan's initial development could not have been carried out without Mako's direction. [5]
