Iuchi Hotaiko was a big shugenja of the Unicorn Clan. [1]

Family Edit

Hotaiko was the granddaughter of Iuchi Eniki, a Oba-sama. Shinjo Renari was nephew of Eniki. [2]

Lying Darkness Edit

Renari and Eniki led a Unicorn group which were aware of the dangers of the Lying Darkness and its servants. They bore crystal pendants to protect them and to identify their concealed enemies. Hotaiko also traveled with Renari. They camped at day and rode at night, as the best tactic to keep them away from minions of the Shadows. [3]

Kaagi Edit

The group was met by Kitsuki Kaagi, a Kitsuki Magistrate, who came to them as a Shadow hunter. The group was leaving the place and escaped from Goju Ninja pursuers. After they crossed the Dragon-Unicorn border they were attacked and Eniki used her last energies to save them. The next day also died Renari, his throat grasped from inside. She expected to use a spell to reach Shiro Iuchi before more deaths happened. [4]
