Soshi Kaoru was a samurai-ko of the Scorpion Clan.

Mission Edit

Kaoru and her cousin Soshi Yoshino were dispatched by the Soshi Daimyo Soshi Uidori to Honored Treaty City. The two of them had to present a gift to the Shogun Kaneka, a crystal flower carved by an Ashalan Sandsmith. The Shogun was not there and Yoshino refused to leave until he claimed the gift. [1]

Making Friends Edit

Kaoru spent part of her time with Shiba Kanshiro, the only one in the court who presented no political advantage. Thus, he was the only one with whom Kaoru could relax. With him, there was no pressure to be a Scorpion. [2]

Yoshino's Affair Edit

Yoshino had an affair with Seppun Isa, daughter of the city's governor Seppun Juro. She was betrothed to a Dragon, Mirumoto Aichi but Yoshino followed his heart. This was the truth behind his refusal to leave the city. Kaoru became a good friend of Shiba Kanshiro and told him her troubles, which could harm the Dragon-Scorpion Alliance and her family's honor. [3]

Juro's death Edit

When the body of Juro was found, Kitsuki Temko, an agent of the Shogun, was appointed to investigate. None inside the castle were allowed to leave until the murder was solved. [4] Kanshiro was aiding Temko in her investigtionm, and he requested aid to Kaoruin finding a secret entrance to a secret but spotless library beneath the castle. Kanshiro guessed this library was used by the murderer to gain the knowlegde to kill Juro and also as escape way. [5]

Murderer Exposed Edit

Kanshiro exposed the peasant Genjo, Seppun Isa's older brother, as Juro's murderer, and stroke him down when he attempted to escape through force. Juro never had children of his own and had adopted the daughter of one of his servants. In the end, Juro's honor did not allow him to continue the charade, and he summoned Aichi to tell him the truth in person. Genjo acted to stop Juro, so that his sister would have hope for a better life. Eventually Aichi decided to keep his vows of marriage with Isa. [6]

Kanshiro's Village Edit

Kenshiro returned to his village accompanied by an Imperial Legion, dispatched by Temko to return his aid. Kaoru also moved with them, so she could gather another favor to her Clan. [7]
