Isawa Ekiken was a shugenja of the Phoenix Clan and sensei in the Isawa Taryu-jiai Academy.

Early Years Edit

At the age of six, Ekiken saw how her sister died drowned after she fell in a well. When he was eight, his father, an Isawa Inquisitor, and his mother, a Phoenix magistrate born into the Shiba, were both killed by a summoned oni while investigating reports of Bloodspeaker activity. His great aunt, Isawa Maeko, took Ekiken under her wing. She had been in service to the Master of Fire and Firestorm Legion commander Isawa Hochiu. [1]

Training Edit

As he grew up, Ekiken became arrogant, proud in his Isawa heritage. In the Isawa Shugenja school he used studty to channel his anger and sorrow, making few friends. He even enjoyed humiliating his peers in all sorts of contests of wit and skill, which earned him the wrath of his sensei. [1]

Sensei Edit

During his travels Ekiken fought and won three taryu-jiai duels against powerful shugenja of other Clans to defend the honor of the Isawa, but after several duel lsot, Ekiken eventually learned that pride was a curse one would do best to be rid of. His demeanor changed, and Ekiken was appointed as sensei to the Isawa Taryu-jiai Academy. [1]
