|Titles:||Oracle of Fire|
Early Years Edit
Norikazu's mother died in his childbirth, and he grew up unnoticed in the Isawa Shugenja school. He was childhood friend of Isawa Kaede, daughter of the Master of Void, Isawa Ujina, who was the closest friend of Norikazu's father.  As a youth, he was struck with a strange fever that left him frail and weak, and also affected his mind. 
During his gempukku he first saw an strange old man, who said "I am watching you. Norikazu." When the shugenja turned, the stranger was gone. However, Isawa Ujina was standing in front of Norikazu, and advised him to avoid that man.  The elder was an Oracle, the current Oracle of Fire. 
Potential Unleashed Edit
The unassuming shugenja once Norikazu was, had been transformed in a prodigy. He began to train with Ujina's children, Isawa Tadaka, Isawa Tomo and Kaede. Norikazu's father died of a sudden illness, and during the funeral he saw the old man again, who said "It is time for you to leave." Norikazu left and was not seen for years. 
First Visions Edit
When Norikazu returned to the Isawa lands he found Ujina transformed in a Nameless One, a twisted and foul man in tattered robes. The Elemental Master told it was too late and touched the younger Phoenix's forehead. Norikazu saw everything: Ujina's hatred for the Oracles, Shiba kneeling before Isawa, Bayushi Shoju cutting down the 38th Hantei Emperor, a great army of Naga marching on the lands of the Dragon. He saw the Sun and Moon turned to ash and fall from the sky. These visions overwhelmed Norikazu, and since that day he had brief moments of lucidity. Kaede took a personal interest in keeping Norikazu well, and she realized that his eyes became clearer with each passing day. 
Clan War Edit
Norikazu was a small, dark man with black eyes that seemed to look beyond the world of mortals. He was a powerful and capable shugenja, despite his inner struggles. Norikazu was close to Isawa Kaede, who aided him in his battle to control the voices. As the Clan War began, the demands on Norikazu's faculties increased, to the point that he was almost always accompanied by Kaede. 
During the Clan War, Norikazu came to realize that the hallucinations were actually visions of the future. Each time he was visited with a glimpse of the future, his illness grew worse. Norikazu was one of only a handful of Phoenix shugenja to survive Isawa Tsuke's brutal betrayal of the Phoenix Clan on the Day of Thunder and worked in rebuilding the fallen clan's shugenja schools. 
When darkness falls over the Empire, two men will ride forth to save it. One man will find his master and the other will kill him. ...the Splendid Emperor will die by his own hand.
War against the Shadow Edit
"Fear long shadows, shadows trained to protect, taught to kill."
-Isawa Norikazu 
Near the end of the War Against the Darkness, the Dragon of Fire came to Norikazu and made him the Oracle of Fire.   Despite the normal longevity of the Oracles, the same malady that caused his madness eventually would take his life. 
One last vision sealed Norikazu's fate. Norikazu saw his brother Isawa Mitori struck down by the same fever that had cursed him with prophecy. He saw his brother die. He passed the power and duties of Oracle of Fire to his brother , and calmly surrendered to the death.  His soul went to Realm of Thwarted Destiny
