Master Tiger

Master Tiger was the title given to the master of the Tiger Sect of the Kolat. Master Tiger was charged with keeping the secrets of the Kolat. No one has ever learned the identity of anyone who has served as Master Tiger.

Order of the Assassins Edit

In the 12th century the Qolat informed about the immortal Old Man of the Mountain. When they tried to approach him, the leader of the Assassins of Medinaat al-Salaam dismissed them. The Qolat discovered the Old Man was Hassan al-Alamut, the Prince, the Sultan's son who had been borne in the 9th century. They infiltrated his organization and in 1112 planted Haroun as a son of the Old Man. The infant grew up and was later recruited, becoming the Blood Red Tiger Master. Master Tiger told him the truth. [1]

Recruiting Moto Chaozhu Edit

Moto Chaozhu's hatred of his brother Moto Chen festered many years before he made finally a deal with the Kolat. Chaozhu joined them in 1159 after the kolat succeeded in shaming his brother in court, by the command of the Master Tiger. [2]

Master Coin Edit

That same year Master Tiger visited Master Coin Moshi Shanegon, who had fallen out of favor with Master Tiger after he was manipulated by Yasuki Jinn-Kuen and several kolat strongholds had been discovered as a result. Those who failed the Kolat faced the Tiger. Shanegon left Rokugan and Jinn-Kuen became the new Kolat Master of Coin. [3]

Betrothal of Shono and Genki Edit

When in 1160 Shinjo Shono and Moto Genki were bethroded to be married next year, Tiger visited Master Steel, Morito. Tiger had been informed by Master Dream and Master Cloud had both detected powerful portents surrounding Shono's marriage, and Tiger pressed to kill Shono's bride. [4] The portents foretold of the Kami Shinjo's reincarnation, possibly as one of the couple's children. [5] [6]

Togashi Satsu Edit

Master Tiger organized a plot to assassinate the Dragon Clan Champion Togashi Satsu. By kidnapping Satsu's wife Togashi Misuko, they hoped to lure the Champion into a trap. The plot was uncovered by Hoshi Kaelung who prevented Misuko's kidnapping. In actuality, Tiger created the plot so he could discover the extent of Satsu's powers. Master Jade was not pleased about the use of one of his agents in the intrigue.[7]

War Amid the Shadows Edit

When Bayushi Paneki's strike force captured the Hidden Temple in 1170, Shosuro Kyuichi killed a man dressed in Master Tiger's robes and mask. The man was Ujina Heiji, but it was not known if Heiji truly was Master Tiger or merely a decoy.[8]

Age of Conquest Edit

For more than a generation, the Kolat had been believed dead by the Empire as Master Coin desired. In the late 12th century the Kolat were ready to expand their operations once more. Masters Coin and Master Tiger, tentative allies for decades, had chosen to fill one of the vacant positions, a new Master Roq to assume control of the Kolat's operations within the Colonies, ensuring the balance of power remained. [9] Master Tiger considered the appointment of Yasuki Makoto as Imperial Advisor as one of their greatest victory. [10]
