Ikoma Shikei was a bard of the Lion Clan.
Naishou province Edit
In 1198 the Phoenix governor of the Naishou province died under mysterious circumstances.  Crane and Scorpion Clans sent troops to claim the province as their own, while the Imperial Miya Ansho was appointed to re-establish peace in the area. Shikei was alongside the Lion troops who accompanied the new governor, and eventually he was appointed as the Lion liaison at provinicial court. 
Shikei worked tirelessly in his new role, but he disliked the idea that his clan, as the Governor's enforcers, had been effectively removed from the list of contenders for administrating the province. He was eager the political entanglement could be decided in the field of battle, and he manipulated events to foster heightened tensions between his clan and the others, trying to promote a military confrontation where the Lion could truly display their might and honor.
