Shiba Itami 
Born: Unknown 
Died: Unknown 
Titles: Nasu Daimyo

Shiba Itami of House Nasu was the Nasu Daimyo, vassals of the Shiba.

Station Edit

Itami was appointed as Provincial Governor, and took stewardship of Shiro Shiba during Shiba Tsukimi was absent. [1]

Politics Edit

Itami was a young and beautiful courtier who decided that the days of the withdrawn Nasu family were over. In the Imperial Court she approached the Scorpion and Crane to become the pre-eminent courtly family in the Phoenix Clan. Only Doji Nagori responded favorably to her efforts and that response was far more likely due to her physical appearance than genuine respect. [2] She was described as "pretty and well-schooled, but naive" by Nagori. [3] In the court she used to meet with courtiers of low status, as Kakita Gosha. [4]

Naseru's ploy in action

Itami was stationed in the minor court of Nikesake, to resolve minor issues between the Phoenix and the Crane ambassadors. [5] She was an unskilled courtier, and Hantei Naseru used her as a channel to spread the rumor of an allegiance between the Emerald Champion and himself. [3] [6]
