Death of Hikaru Edit
In 1145 the Acolyte of Earth Isawa Sachi found a smoldering village with many frightened peasants and one half-dead samurai -- his dear friend, Isawa Hikaru. Hikaru had been speared to the ground and would not survive, but before his death, he told Sachi of nearby Yobanjin troops and their movements. Sachi attempted to heal the man, but Hikaru would not allow him to use his magic when the crops, and therefore the lives of the Phoenix Clan were at stake. 
Just before his death, Hikaru told Sachi that he knew the shugenja loved his wife Taeruko. Hikaru had known all along, but was not angered. He commended Sachi for putting his Clan first, and admitted that the shugenja had always been his closest friend, despite Sachi's feelings for his wife. When Hikaru died, Sachi was angered past anything he had previously experienced.

|Secrets of the Phoenix page 53 claims that Taeruko's husband died shortly after his daughter was born, 1136. But the fiction Masters of Earth put that date in 1145, which a consider more accuracy. --Oni no Pikachu 08:08, January 25, 2011 (UTC)|
