Titles: Leader of the Unbroken

Mariko was a leader of the Unbroken, a group of ronin who were able to rid their bodies of taint with a naga ritual.[1]

Youth Edit

Mariko was born with the taint, because her parents had been tainted. When she was three year old Mariko's father made Ghedai perform the purifying ritual upon her, then led a daring raid into the Shadowlands capturing several goblins and carrying them back alive. He helped his daughter kill them, but when the ritual still needed one more tainted kill he helped her to kill himself. Her father's taint was enough, and Mariko lived, strong and pure.[2]

Death Edit

Mariko died in the winter of 1159 and her succesor was Tsumaru. [3]
