Titles: Governor of Ryoko Owari Toshi

Shosuro Atsusuke was the Twelfth Governor of Ryoko Owari Toshi under the early rule of the Emperor Hantei XVII. [1]

Governor Edit

Atsusuke was an inexperienced governor who was appointed shortly before a new Emperor ruled Rokugan, Hantei XVII. When the Son of the Heavens informed he would visit the city. Atsusuke was pressed by the nobles to reduce the number of eta in the city, and broke the promise of the Sixth Governor, Shosuro Kurodo, who had given several privileges to the eta regarding collecting refuse. [1]

The Garbage Rebellion Edit

Atsusuke started taxing the collection of dung at a heavy rate, hoping to make Ryoko Owari less attractive to the eta. The first timid complains from eta and farmers were silenced by force. The eta stopped collecting refuse, and in little time the food prices rose, the city was at risk of civil disorder, and it was increasingly smelly. The so-called Garbage Rebellion finished when Atsusuke removed the taxes he had edicted. [1]

Aftermath Edit

The eta community grew in power and self-identity, and they were called Leatherworkers since then. [1]
