Shinjo Inejiro was a Unicorn Clan bushi, cousin to the Unicorn Clan Champion. [1]

Falling in Love Edit

Inejiro was a passionate man who went about all that he did with great fervor. [2] He founded the city of Oshindoka Toshi in 925 in order to please Kakita Konyo, the father of Inejiro's love, Kakita Umeki. Konyo, Master of the Kakita Dueling Academy, was surprised and retracted some harsh comments he had previously made about the Unicorn and promised Umeki's hand to Inejiro as soon as the city was complete. [1]

Umeki's Death Edit

Matsu Hajime was a rival suitor for Umeki, although purely for political reasons. Hajime was enraged when Inejiro won Umeki's hand and accused Kakita Konyo of breaking his oath to the Lion Clan. Hajime brutally attacked the Kakita lands. Inejiro and his followers rushed to the Kakita's defense, but arrived too late to save Umeki, who had been shot by a stray arrow near the beginning of the siege. [1]

Exacting Revenge Edit

Inejiro furiously swore to kill every Lion commander that had taken up arms against Konyo. Konyo added his forces to Inejiro's and the joint army invaded the Matsu lands. The current Lion Clan Champion, who was an Akodo, saw Hajime as dishonorable and stood aside as Inejiro assaulted Hajime so long as he promised to withdraw his armies once his vengeance was complete. [3]

After one year Inejiro completed his quest and returned to his unfinished city. Snow had damaged it, but Inejiro swore that he would finish the monument to his lost love. Kakita Konyo donated a statue of Umeki to Inejiro, which was placed at the city gates. [4]

Death Edit

Sometime after Oshindoka Toshi was completed, a Pekkle no Oni arrived at the city and assumed Umeki's appearance. It seduced Inejiro and poisoned him in his sleep. None suspect his death was anything but an accident. [4]
