Isawa Toshiji was a shugenja and judge of the Phoenix Clan

Negotiations Edit

In 1169 Toshiji assigned his bureaucrat Asako Risa to work with Yoritomo Heikichi, an aide to the Mantis courtier Yoritomo Yoyonagi. They were supposed to draw up a list of magistrates acceptable to both clans for the wharf districts of Toshi no Omoidoso. Heikichi despised Risa, seeing her as fussy, humorless, and authoritarian. Heikichi was having far too much amusement embarrassing Risa to do the job he was assigned. Both Yoyonagi and Toshiji wanted the matter concluded quickly, but stepping in would be admitting poor judgment on their parts. [1]

Crane clean the path Edit

Doji Ayano managed to assign the Kakita Duelist Kakita Hideo as Risa's bodyguard, a movement that threatened Heikichi who quickly concluded the list. In return Toshiji gave Ayano a full set of travel papers to the Phoenix provinces, signed and sealed by him. It permitted the Crane to clear another blocked negotiation Ayano had with a Scorpion courtier, Bayushi Gihei. [1]

Black Scroll Edit

In 1170 a new Black Scroll had appeared in the Empire, the Essence of Destruction, created after Kyoso no Oni was bound to it. In 1172 it was researched by Isawa Yutako, who passed regular controls with the Inquisitor Agasha Asai. If Yutako's soul was risked with the taint, Toshiji had to execute her. After Yutako successfully passed one of the tests she discovered the scroll was not the one she expected, it was an older one already opened and planted by a third party to cover the theft of the original.
