Moto Khatalan of House Onshigawa was a samurai-ko of the Unicorn Clan.

Single Edit

Khatalan was the beautiful daughter of Moto Chai, and every bit as athletic as her father. The Moto Daimyo realized that marrying Khatalan to the right suitor would greatly benefit the family, as well as the Unicorn. Khatalan balked at this and said that she would only marry a man who could best her in a foot race, and who was willing to wager ten fine horses on the race. [1]

Vassal Family Edit

Khatalan handily won dozens of races and collected hundreds of horses. Her daimyo began to despair and sent a summons to all noble samurai within ten days ride to compete for her hand. One, a tar-khan named Moto Onshigawa came and wagered one-hundred fine horses. Onshigawa nearly beat Khatalan, but fell into a ravine and died. Khatalan brought all the horses she had won to her lord and gave them to him in exchange for her freedom, that being her plan all along. [2]

The daimyo was impressed and gave Khatalan the honor of creating a vassal family. Khatalan named her family the Onshigawa family in honor of her brave competitor. [3]
