Shinjo Zhenyo 
Born: Unknown 
Died: 9th century

Shinjo Zhenyo was a yojimbo of the Unicorn Clan, in charge of an Ide Diplomat sent to the Imperial Court shortly after the Return of the Ki-Rin. His charge were direct and speaking forthrightly in their travel abroad, but it went directly at odds with the Rokugani customs of couching every word with hidden meanings. [1]

Death Edit

A disagreement with a Lion courtier led to an inevitable challenge, to be dealt by the two courtier's yojimbo. Akodo Rikimaru mocked his opponent's stance, who unsweated his katana before the duel began, as it was usual in the Unicorn combat style. Zhenyo was killed in the ensuing duel, but not before he managed to wound Rikamaru. The Unicorn had earned respect from Rikimaru who decided to retire as a monk, to never face another warrior in a duel.
