was one of the Kitsu Shugenja who served as healer to the Lion armies led by Kitsu Motso to defend the Kaiu Wall during the War Against Shadow. Upon their return to their homelands the veterans were horrified that the same monsters of the Shadowlands were allowed to roam free in the Kitsu lands under the protection of the Kitsu Daimyo Kitsu Okura. Many of the priests committed seppuku, while the rest left their family becoming ronin. 
In 1133 after the Battle of Oblivion's Gate the Emperor Toturi I granted these shugenja their own family, as vassals of the Kitsu. Ryo became their first daimyo and the Temple of the Jade Lion just south of Bishamon Seido became the family ancestral home. The Noroko family would serve the Kitsu and the Jade Champion against the threat of the Taint.
