Matsu Sakaki

Matsu Sakaki

Matsu Sakaki was a bushi of the Lion Clan.

War of the Rich Frog Edit

In 1165 Sakaki was involved in the defense of the City of the Rich Frog during the War of the Rich Frog. She had the young Matsu Fumiyo under her command. Sakaki saw Fumiyo was fond of Akodo Sadahige, and she liked to embarras her friend talking about what Fumiyo felt toward the handsome young bushi. [1]

March to Shiro Moto Edit

The Lion Clan Champion Matsu Yoshino promised the Khan Moto Chagatai that he would march into the heart of the Unicorn lands. Sakaki would gladly give her life for the chance to prove the Lion's strength over these traitors [2] that assaulted the Imperial City in the Battle of Toshi Ranbo in 1169. When the march to Shiro Moto began this year the Lion generals intended to sweep past the Unicorn defenses and establish a foothold within their lands that would be ready when spring began. Sakaki and her unit was sent to the front lines. [1]

Lion's Pride Edit

Sakaki joined the Lion's Pride in 1169 under the command of Matsu Kenji. [3]

Lion return to Toshi Ranbo Edit

The Phoenix had banished the Lion from the Imperial City after a riot with the Mantis. When the Dragon of Fire returned to Tengoku Kenji led a Lion force until Toshi Ranbo's gates. She did not intend to fight her way into the capitol, it was simply a political statement to assert the position of her Clan. Shiba Naoya, Captain of the Imperial Guard, could not stop them from entering the city without engaging in battle, which would ruin all that they had worked for. The Lion were allowed to enter the city. [3]

Shiro Matsu Edit

Sakaki was assigned to guard duty on Shiro Matsu. In 1170 she saw a Miya Herald with the back banner of Kitsuki Iweko, bringing news of her victory in the Celestial Tournament. [4]

War of Honor Edit

Bayushi Saka and Bayushi Hikoko provoked a conflict [5] with the Lion. [6] The Scorpion had attacked an Imperial ambassadorship caravan [7] near a Crane village, and the assailants had planted a dagger [8] with the Matsu mon, as Sasaki knew later. [9] Saka considered Akodo Dosei a straight-laced buffoon who had no inkling what was really going on there. By the time he realized it, it would all be over. [10] Matsu Fumiyo considered a blasphemy that a Lion's blade was found at the scene of a crime. [11] The Dragon revealed the truth, however, and the Scorpion were exposed. [12] A Lion army was given an opportunity to avenge a debt of honor. [13] The Phoenix meddled to stop the fight among both clans, [14] as well as the Dragon. [15] It was a dispute between two clans, with two more involved in a misguided attempt to mediate. [16] Disagreements between the clans caused great chaos and discord, but the situation ultimately benefited the Imperial families in one way or another, [17] and they had permitted the war to begin, as they provided the Scorpion the planted item. [18]
