Shiho was a peasant vassal of Shiba Shonagon. He ran the silver smithy known as the Star of Silver in Ryoko Owari Toshi, and the profits made there allowed Shonagon to live a comfortable life. One of Shiho's workers at the smithy was a crafter maiden of great talent, Takako.
Shonagon's death Edit
His Lady wrote Memoirs of an Opium Eater which referred to Shiho as 'Dear Friend', but the book was only published after her death. Shiho regreted that Shonagon had died a shameful death because he believed that the money raised by the Star of Silver had aided quickening demise.
