Kisada, the returned Fortune of Persistence, had survived the attempts on his life made by Scorpion ninja. He was outraged, and in 1168 forces led by Hida Sozen began a brutal series of raids on Scorpion villages beginning the Crab-Scorpion War. The Scorpion Clan ChampionBayushi Paneki had foreseen it, and already had commanded Ohan to place Shosuro disguised as ronin in the Scorpion villages along the Crab border. Before they died in the raids messages were sent to Paneki about the Crab activities. Ohan personally reported the messages to Paneki.
