Killing the Dark Naga Edit

In 1199 during the Dark Naga Siege of the Second City, Kae prepared a deathly trap for the creature known as the Dark Naga. She and Daidoji Tobei were chased by the massive creature, and luring the Dark Naga to the Spring Blossom Silk Works, the most valuable holding of the Crane Clan within the Second City.
