Matsu Daro was a master rider of the Lion Clan.

Fall of Shiro Moto Edit

Daro served as yojimbo of the courier Matsu Yoshike. In the Fall of Shiro Moto in 1170 bothe were wounded and Daro survived the day thanks to a mercenary ronin serving to the Lion, Hisao, [1] son of the man who died protecting his father. [2]

Return to Kyuden Ikoma Edit

Hisao was appointed as Yoshike's yojimbo alongside Daro, who was healthy enough. Yoshike was the messenger who would carry the news of the battle to Kyuden Ikoma. [1]

Death Edit

Daro died in another minor skirmish, this one with the Scorpion. Hisao killed the Scorpion bushi that struck down his friend and master, then delivered Daro's swords to the Lion. When the ronin presented his master's swords, he was immediately accused of being Daro's killer. The confusion was eventually cleared up when Daro's wife confirmed Hisao’s identity. [3]
