Imperial Funeral Edit

In the year 514 the Emperor Hantei XI died. Hantei XII decreed his father's funeral would establish the standard funeral rites for all of the Empire. After the First Rise of Iuchiban Hantei XI had forbidden to bury the dead, and they had to be cremated instead, but the proper rites had not been defined yet. The new Emperor tasked the Jade Champion, Seppun Matashi, with deciding on the most honorable and pious ritual. Undermined by the Elemental Masters, Matashi found refusal for all the rituals he proposed for the Imperial funeral. Eventually a Four Temples monk, Gorinno, convinced everyone to accept his ideas, and he was credited for the successful funeral. [1]
