Shiba Mariko 
Born: Unknown

Parents: Shiba Shimiko

Shiba Mariko was a shugenja who was a bloodspeaker at command of Jama Suru. She killed her cousin, Asako Akiro, a gifted prophet.

Family Edit

Her mother was Shiba Shimiko and had a cousin, Asako Akiro.

Bloodspeaker Edit

Mariko was a bloodspeaker follower of Jama Suru.

Prophet Edit

From very young she knew of the visions her cousin had. Akiro grew alone, and only Mariko was beside him to watch if he could reveal any prophecy who could endanger the plans of her master. When Akiro became a scholar of a tiny and remote library atop a cliff she visited him in 745 and confirmed that he knew all his prophecies became truth.

Killing her Cousin Edit

In 749 Mariko visited him again, and after Akiro decided to reveal his prophecy records gathered in his satchel, Mariko stabbed him and tried to reach the scrolls. Akiro hurled himself from the cliff, plummeting hundreds of feet to the jagged rocks below, clutching his satchel of prophecies as he fell. Suru magically filled the chasm with rocks to avoid the prophecy scrolls could be retrieved by anybody.
