Shinjo Isuke 
Born: Unknown 
Died: 1170

Shinjo Isuke was a bushi of the Unicorn Clan.

Revolutionaries Edit

He investigated who was behind the peasant revolutions that plagued the Empire. [1] Later was known that Kokujin, the Prophet of the Dark Lotus, was the leader. [2]

Shinomen Mori Edit

Isuke was stationed in the Shinomen Mori. [3] In 1170 his gunso Utaku Etsuko had been talking with a Crab force [4] and shortly after Etsuko left them, the Unicorn were chased by the Crab without explanation. Isuke convinced his commander to leave behind the infantry at his orders, and return to the Naga cities with the cavalry. The Crab reached them and Hida Masatari asked surrender, which was refused by Isuke, who would make his last stance before the Unicorn were treated as honorless filth. [3]

Death Edit

Isuke and their men fight to the last man. [5]

Aftermath Edit

Toritaka Kaiketsu, whose forces had been attacked with arrows after Etsuke left him, saw no bows in the dead Crabs. He came to the conclusion that these men had not been the ones who attacked the Crab. They had faced a vastly superior force without fear, they gave no quarter, they did not retreat, they did not surrender. The Unicorn tended their wounded and the dead men of both sides. [3]
