Setsuban festival Edit

Himitsu witnessed [4] a shugenja Setsuban Festival Tournament at Ki-Rin's Shrine. The Emperor Hantei XXXVIII had announced his niece Otomo Yoroshiku was ellegible for marriage in the festival. [5]

Asako winter court Edit

In 1121 Himitsu accompanied Ujimitsu to the Asako winter court at Shiro Gisu. [1]

Testimony Edit

Himitsu guessed Yoroshiku knew his bastardly lineage, and hated her for that. [2] During an improptu poetry contest Himitsu accused Yoroshiku was not of the imperial line. Another suitor samurai, Ryuden, challenged him to a duel. He would sponsor the testimony of the ronin bandit Niban, who had passed him this information. [6]
