Kaiu Kenru was an armorer Master Smith of the Crab Clan. [1]

Family Edit

Kenru was the father of Kaiu Kuma and Iuchi Katamari. Katamari was born out of wedlock to an Iuchi mother, and did not know who his father was until his mother lay on her deathbed. [2]

Koebi Supporter Edit

Kenru recommended to the Crab Clan Champion Hida Kisada that the Koebi family should be given minor clan status for their service to the Hida family. [3]

Scorpion Coup Edit

In the fourth day of the Scorpion Coup, Kisada arrived at Otosan Uchi and turned his red flag, Kisada's Allegiance, toward the Clans encampments. The Crab forces attacked the Southern Wall before it was too dark to fight, with Hida Tampako and Yasuki Nokatsu with the Crab Heavy Infantry, alongside Hida Amoro with his Dead-Eyes Berserkers, and Kenru overseeing the Siege Engines. They were confronted by Bayushi Togai and Bayushi Dozan with their Black Cabal, Bayushi Tomaru with his Scorpion Claws, and Bayushi Tasu with his Scorpion's Strike. [4]

Kenru Family Edit

Kenru was granted his own vassal family, the Kenru, for his talent as armorsmith. [5]

Kaiu Wall Edit

After his family was killed during a raid by Shadowlands creatures, Kenru went to the Hida Bushi dojo to learn warfare. When he felt he had learned enough, Kenru requested to be stationed at the Kaiu Wall. He taught his entire unit how to care for and make small improvements to their armor, increasing its effectiveness in battle. [6]
