Born: Unknown

Parents: Un-named Soshi Lord 
Siblings: Soshi Eiji

Soshi Ippei was the brother of Soshi Eiji and the eldest son of a powerful Soshi Lord. [1]

Family Edit

Ippei was a lazy man with no ambitions, but as the oldest brother, he would inherit the family's holdings. [1] When growing up Eiji was very close to Ippei. That was until Eiji focused on his studies only to find Ippei remained popular. When their father died, leaving more of the inheritance to Ippei, Eiji grew to hate his brother. [2]

War of SpiritsEdit

During the War of Spirits Ippei used his wealth to draw upon favors from the Imperial Families, insuring that he would be allowed to avoid combat. When Eiji became a Recruiter for Toturi I he arranged for it so his brother would be assigned to combat, destroying the documents that protected his brother from active duty, replaced them with forgeries ordering that Ippei be reassigned to the Dragon/Phoenix border. [1]

Death Edit

Ippei, who was not a warrior, was killed in 1150 fighting the armies of the Steel Chrysanthemum. Eiji's mother blamed him for Ippei's death, but Eiji did not care as all the inheritance now passed to him. [2]
