Moto Najmudin was a bushi of the Unicorn Clan who won the Topaz Championship in 1160. He became a Emerald Magistrate and died in fight against the Onyx Champion, Isawa Fosuta.

Family Edit

Najmudin was the son of Moto Khardin. [1]

Topaz Championship Edit

During the contest one contender, Kuni Jiyuna, was attacked by the Bog Hag Shikageko who was disguised as the monk Murai. Najmudin, Tsuruchi Fusako and Matsu Takenao fought the creature who was killed by a jade spell of Jiyuna. Najmudin was awarded with the championship. [1]

Station Edit

Doji Jotaro granted Najmudin a position as yoriki, assistant to an Imperial Magistrate. He selected Takenao, Fusako and Jiyuna as his doshin. [1]

Crane Lands Edit

Najmudin and his associates discovered a maho-tsukai operating in the Crane lands in 1161. When she was finally defeated, they found a symbol featured prominently among his belongings and tattooed across her torso several times. It was an ancient nomad pictogram from the Burning Sands, resembling a mythical beast, similar to a flaming horse or a Ki-rin. [2]

Unicorn Lands Edit

The four were later stationed on their respective Clan lands and Najmudin went to Kodotai Mura, a minor Utaku outpost at the command of Isawa Kurasu. In 1165 he was visited there by Agasha Chieh, acting governess of the Agasha provinces and Imperial Magistrate. She showed Najmudin an unrolled scroll which had a kanji, the same symbol as the one he saw in Crane lands, a Ki-rin. The scroll had been taken from a disrupted blasphemous sect of monks operating out of an old monastery on the Dragon Heart Plain. Chieh told him that Agasha Daimyo Agasha Hamanari had collapsed into a terrible fever, screaming about blood and the Ki-Rin. Najmudin was ordered to clarify what menace was behind these events and departed to the Shrine of the Ki-Rin. His old companions would be summoned to join him near Otosan Uchi. [2]

Rain of Blood Edit

Najmudin was at Toshi no Omoidoso when the Rain of Blood covered the Empire. The Phoenix knew on advance of the Rain and their lands were protected with coordinated rituals. But the City of Remembrance was assaulted by a tainted Yoritomo Kitao and most of her crew, who laid the city in ruins. Najmudin and the local magistrates alongside the legendary Matsu Hitomi retreated to make their stand in the temple of Daikoku. The Phoenix Clan Champion, Shiba Mirabu, and fifty Shiba were magically transported by Isawa Sezaru near the city [3] and saved them. [4] In the battle's aftermath Najmudin discovered documents identifying a number of Bloodspeakers throughout the Empire. He and his companions had each been promoted to investigate Bloodspeakers within their individual clans' lands, and they each began to report directly to the Emerald Champion, Yasuki Hachi or one of his senior magistrates. Najmudin return to the Moto lands. [5]

Journals of Kuni Nakanu Edit

The same year Najmudin was visited by the Imperial Herald, Miya Shoin, who gave him the Journals of Kuni Nakanu, recently discovered. The journals was the foundation of all maho, and also the foundation of Empire understanding of the Shadowlands Taint. They must be deciphered and studied. Najmudin made a copy to the Jade Champion, Asahina Sekawa, and another copy to Shiro Iuchi through Moto Latomu. [5]

Judge at Topaz Champion Edit

In 1166 Najmudin was member of the Imperial Guard. He was back at Tsuma to be a judge of the Topaz Championship. [6]

Test of the Emerald Champion - 1169 Edit

Najmudin and Utaku Tama were contenders of the Test of the Emerald Champion in 1169. [7]

New Shogun Edit

In 1170 Moto Jin-sahn was appointed as the new Shogun. His first mission was to drive the called Spider Clan out of the Shinomen Mori. The Spider set to fire the Shinomen to cover their escape and the Unicorn Guards were attacked by goblins and Lost. The arrival of the forces led by Najmudin and Matsu Fumiyo turned the tide back against the Spider for a moment, until Isawa Fosuta, the Onyx Champion, appeared. [8]

Death Edit

Najmudin was fighting with Daigotsu Junichi when he was struck down by the magics of the former Inquisitor Isawa Fosuta. [8]

Sources Conflict
The sources relating to this article are in conflict with each other.
Though "Glimpse of Tomorrow" mentions Najmudin's victory at the Topaz Championship as being in 1152 and five years having past, the events of this story, namely the ongoing War of the Rich Frog and the foreshadowing of the Rain of Blood, take place in 1165, not 1157. Because of this, accepting that five years have past places Najmudin's victory in the year 1160.
