Shinjo Scout

A Shinjo Scout

The Shinjo Scout were created following the techniques learned from the Hiruma Scouts that trained in the Unicorn lands. [1]

History Edit

Burning Sands Edit

Shinjo Scout 3

A Shinjo Explorer

The techniques they taught had their roots in the Ki-Rin Clan, when Shinjo and her followers wandered the deserts and plains north of Rokugan, and scouts and outriders kept the clan safe from attacks. They became warriors because in this harsh environment it was necessary. [2]

Back in Rokugan Edit

The Unicorn had a permanent home for their first time, and the Empire had already mapped it with the Imperial Cartographers. With no sense of purpose or duty, the Shinjo Scouts were easy prey for the kolat agents within the Shinjo family, and were heavily infiltrated by them. From scouts and warriors they were transformed in spies and assassins. When the Shinjo's purge began, nearly one in five were eliminated. [2]

After the Purge Edit

Members of a disgraced family, the Shinjo Scouts were widely reviled. They struggled to rebuild their dojos and strongholds, helped by other Shinjo families. The Khan had used the scouts in his efforts to rebuild relationships with the rest of the Empire, and the scouts once again enjoyed their true purpose. [2]

Destroyer War Edit

Shinjo Dun commanded the Shinjo Scouts in battle during the Destroyer War. [3] In 1172 his detachment aided the Lioness Legion led by Matsu Kenji in the Badger. The Lion force had been ambushed by a superior force of Yobanjin. [4]

Uprisings Edit

The plague, the fear for the Destroyers, and the attacks of the returned Army of Fire spread the fire of revolution through the Empire. The Shinjo Scouts withdrew from the fighting in order to ensure that uprisings in their home provinces were quelled. [5]

Closing portals to Gaki-do Edit

Asako Inquisitors, Ikoma Wardens, Lady Doji's Eyes, and Shinjo Scouts marshalled to prevent the opening of a portal to Gaki-do advised by the Master of Air Isawa Mitsuko. When they reached the place the portal was already opened and a nearby village attacked. Moto Kang closed the portal driving peasants into it, the way to make its closure possible. [6] Another portal appeared, but in this time the Shinjo Scouts and Inquisitors were aided by the Spider Dark Wind and a large oni. Eventually the portal was closed when a Fuchitsujo joined the rokugani and demon. [7]

Engagement near Toshi Ranbo Edit

Strange human gaijin with jewelry of some sort, supposedly from the Ivory Kingdoms or Ra'Shari, were scouting too close to the Imperial City Toshi Ranbo, when the Shinjo Scouts intercepted them. [8] The scouts returned to Unicorn lands when news arrived of a Centuriae attack on the Western Steppes. [9]

Kidnapped Imperial courier Edit

An Imperial Courier was had been kidnapped and the responsible party soon found itself trapped between the Shinjo Scouts and the Dark Wind cavalry. The abductors threatened to kill the courier unless Shinjo Dun gave his word to allow them to leave once they turned the courier over. After the Imperial was returned, the Dark Wind eradicated the entire force. [10]
