Seppun Koushun 
Born: Unknown 
Died: 1199

Seppun Koushun was a shugenja of the Imperial Families.

Station Edit

Koushun was a mere assistant to a librarian, a man who spent his entire life devoted to the Imperial Archives, a man with no ambitions beyond serving his lords. [1]

Winter Court - 1199 Edit

In 1199 Koushun attended Imperial Winter Court at Toshi Ranbo. He eventually won the magic competition the night before the Devil's Chase, [1] a traditional ending to the Winter Court, in which a procession of priests was led through the Palace by the Devil Chaser, a priest bearing ancient artifacts and performing ceremonial song and dance. [2] Koushun chose to sing an ancient song he had found in the archives only weeks ago. [1]

Death Edit

The song selected by Koushun forced a shapeshifter oni, Kommei no Oni, to appear in its true form of a demon. Seppun Asagako, yojimbo to princess Iweko Miaka, was a demon of Jigoku who rampaged through the city. Desperate to put an end to the music that was preventing it from changing shape, the oni stormed into the Ichidou District, intent on attacking Koushun atop the Temple of the Seven Fortunes, which was playing the Devil's Chase music. The oni was eventually destroyed, [2] but Koushun was among the casualties. [1] The square where the oni died was planted with trees commemorating those who fell in the rampage, the Grove of Darkness Denied. [3]
