Kyuden Kokai

Kyuden Kokai

Kyuden Kokai, the Palace of Remorse, was located in the Toyotomi district [1] and served as prison for the city of Otosan Uchi [2] which only held the samurai caste and it was guarded by the Hajisherazu. [3]

Founding Edit

It was created when the city was first built and was placed well outside the Miwaku Kabe. Centuries later the city's expansion encompassed the prison. [4]

Scorpion Coup Edit

The prisoners were released by the Scorpion in the first day of the Scorpion Coup. They were unaware that the 'prisoners' would resent their freedom, and a group of rebels fought against the assailants of the Imperial City. [5] The Scorpion used it from their own prisoners, and after the Coup it was purified before the original prisoners could return to their meditations. [6]

Fall of Otosan Uchi Edit

In 1159 in the Fall of Otosan Uchi the Lost attacked Kyuden Kokai killing several prisoners. One of the prisoners, a half-maddened aging shugenja, Asako Ichiniro, destroyed the Lost with a rage that had lain quiet for over a decade. He opened the rest of the locks and freed the prisoners to gather combatants against the Shadowlands forces, as last chance to cleanse their shame before death. [2]
