Matsu Shiomi was a samurai-ko of the Lion Clan who married Matsu Gohiro, the grandson of the legendary Matsu. [1]

Great WarriorEdit

Shiomi a fiery and beautiful bushi, who married her beloved, the general Matsu Gohiro. They formed a powerful team on the bat­tlefield: he provided the strategy and tactics, and she provided the passion and battle fury. Together they took Crane territory, Beiden Pass, and a Scorpion territory reaching almost to Ryoko Owari. [1]

Death Edit

During the pacification of a Scorpion town only a day's march from Ryoko Owari, Gohiro died by a poisoned dart. Shiomi, who had been also reached by another dart, was wielding Gohiro's blade, Kyouranken. The nemuranai made her to enter in a fiery rage, overcoming temporarily the effects of the poison. Shiomi managed to kill the assailant, and with her last words ordered the Lion bushi to raze the town and slaughter its inhabitants. [1]

After Death Edit

The soul of Shiomi was imbued onto the blade she wielded, the Blade of Fury, which passed to her eldest son, who was only four at the time of his parents' deaths. Shiomi spoke to those who owned the blade since. [1]
