Shinjo Itao

Shinjo Itao was a bushi of the Unicorn Clan.

Early Years Edit

Itao's parents were both appointed by the Unicorn Clan Champion himself to travel and establish a foothold in the Colonies. Itao was born there, and he considered these lands his home. [1] When Itao was a boisterous young man, he ran afoul a group of rowdy sailors during one drunking night. He harbored resentment against the Mantis, so he honed his iaijutsu skills with the hope one day proving his strength to the Mantis in honorable combat. [2]

Station Edit

When representatives of the Empire arrived to the Second City, Itao escorted them to their new quarters. In 1198 he warned the Kuni Daimyo Kuni Renyu about the demeanor of the Imperial Governor of the Colonies Otomo Suikihime. Itao became Renyu's link to the Unicorn. [1]

Naga Temples Edit

Itao was the cousin of Shinjo Kinto. The two led an expedition into Naga temples, at the behest of the Mara, to recover Naga artifacts. Itao and Kinto also brought the ronin Chuo and his nephew Karui to help. [3]
