Betrothed Edit

Taban marriage had been arranged since he was a child. The woman he was to wed would undergo her gempukku in 1162, and he expected to be married shortly after. He was fond on a fellow student, Utaku Kohana, the most beautiful creature he had ever seen. [1]

Station as ambassador Edit

After the Khan's defeat in the Battle of Toshi Ranbo in 1169 the Unicorn must demonstrate the Khan's true nature by exposing the clans to their young samurai, men and women of character that could serve as an example to others of the true ideals we all hold. Aged Takai sent Kohana and Taban, two of his favored students, as ambassadors to the other Clans. They were assigned to an elder courtier in one of various Unicorn delegations departing into the Empire. They would be given the assignments they desired upon return. [1]
