Shiba Riza

Shiba Riza

Shiba Riza was a Phoenix Clan bushi.

Cursed Man Edit

Riza was a petulant and disobedient child who insulted the monks to a temple dedicated to Emma-O. The Fortune of Death cursed the young boy in revenge. [1]

Training Edit

Riza was sent to the Shiba Arbitrator school to temper his behaviour, but after completing his initial training he requested to be made a yojimbo, the ancestral post of his family. This was a role that Riza excelled at. [1]

Realizing the Curse Edit

One by one close friends and family members were dying around Riza. Eventually an Asako Inquisitor researched into Riza's strange luck as yojimbo, but who suffered such pattern of unfortunate coincidences. The inquisitor told that every time Riza saved a life, another would be lost, someone close to him. Riza decided to save the lives of his fellow Phoenix without drawing his sword. He rededicated himself to the training he reserved as a youth, saving lives by preventing conflict as mediator. [1]

Kumitae Tournament Edit

In 1168 Riza participated in a martial arts tournament, the Kumitae Tournament, which prize was a recently discovered martial arts manual written by Shinsei himself, the Kumitae. Riza fought the Lion Ikoma Kosaku in the first round and lost. One of the contenders, the ronin Masami was later exposed as a tainted Daigotsu's follower, and was killed by Hida Nichie. For her actions Nichie was considered a hero, and the final round was not disputed, being Nichie the Kumitae Champion. [2]
