Shadow Maze

Shadow Maze

The Shadow Maze was the fourth floor of the Imperial Palace at Otosan Uchi, with rice paper walls forming a labyrinth. It was a Scorpion ward filled with optical illusions designed to protect the Emperor and his family in the upper levels. [1]

Scorpion Coup Edit

After Hantei XXXVIII was beheaded by Bayushi Shoju, beginning the Scorpion Coup, the Seppun Miharu sequestered themselves in the Shadow Maze, protecting a small group of Otomo and Seppun. They waged a desperate fight against the Scorpion bushi to the death, none would themselves become hostages. [2]
