Kaiu Wall Edit

Aritomo was a subordinate to the Emerald Magistrate Kaiu Osuki, guarding the Kaiu Wall for years. [1]

Badger's Fate Edit

Aritomo was present when Osuki discovered the devastation that a monster had brought in the lands of the Badger Clan. The Badger Clan Champion, Ichiro Chuga, had been nailed to a post, legs torn from his body. His son and heir Ichiro Hideo appeared jailed in Shiro Ichiro's dungeon. His tainted eyes revealed Hideo had been infected, and the Tsukai-sagasu were recalled to test the samurai. [2] in 1126. [3]

Death Edit

Three months later Aritomo guided Ichiro Koturi, son of the late Chuga, back to his ruined home. Shortly after the demon, who would be known as Hideo no Oni, appeared again, killing many Crab guards within the courtyard, whose bodies used into its right leg. Aritomo was also killed, becoming part of its left shoulder. [4]
