Shiba Kyo 
Shiba Kyo 
Born: Unknown 
Died: 1123

Shiba Kyo was a bushi of the Phoenix Clan.

Early Years Edit

Kyo began life as a samurai from a very poor family. He spent his childhood hunting through the forest to supplement his family's meager belongings: his mother wove clothes, and his father fletched arrows for the children to practice their kyujutsu. Kyo became a master at moving silently and remaining hidden at a young age. [1]

Yojimbo Edit

Kyo witnessed the assassination of his lord at the hands of Sanado, who was pretending to be Retsuko at the time. [2]

Isawa Tomo Edit

Kyo lived at Otosan Uchi prior to the Scorpion Coup, [3] and he traveled with a young Isawa Tomo. [citation needed]

Death Edit

In 1123 Kyo acted as a scout and yojimbo of Tomo in the assault to the Imperial City during the Scorpion Coup. [4] His unit was one of the first to arrive outside Otosan Uchi. Kyo volunteered to gather intelligence about what was going on inside, making several stealthy trips inside the city. On his final mission he returned with information about the Scorpion moving their forces back toward the Forbidden City, then perished from his wounds. [1]
