Kihei 1


Kihei fought for the Crane Clan against Crab in the Second Yasuki War, only to switch sides and kill a Kakita in a fair duel. Unfortunately there were no witnesses. [1]

Expedition to Shinsei's Last Hope Edit

Kihei participated in the expedition to Shinsei's Last Hope [2] with Yasuki Hachi and Doji Reju. Although it was a Twenty Goblin Winter period, Kihei remained ronin. Kihei had made it a tradition to participate in every Twenty Goblin Winter, only to refuse to join the Crab. [3] He thought that in Rokugan, most of the heroes were lunatics. [citation needed] He defended the city against a Shadowlands attack of the undead general Tsukuro. [4]

Many thought of him to be deranged, perhaps rightly so, but any samurai would do well to listen to what Kihei had to say. In his lifetime he had amassed an amazing amount of knowledge in all manner of subjects, such as warfare, monsters and individual weapons. There was no clan that had not tasted his blade, nor was there any clan who had not purchased it. Kihei swore fealty to the Shogun Kaneka, recognizing the greatness in him as soon as they met. Though he was the Herald of the Shogun he chose to remain a ronin. [5]
