Bayushi Tanaka was a bushi of the Scorpion Clan who joined the Soshi through marriage as Soshi Tanaka.

Soshi family Edit

Tanaka was a small man born a low-ranking Bayushi, who wed to his true love, a high-ranking Soshi woman, just after his gempukku, becoming Soshi Tanaka. She died in childbirth with their first child and Tanaka became bitter and resentful. [1]

Ashio Edit

After an unfortunate accident at his dojo that crippled his sensei, Tanaka was sent to Ashio where he wouldn't have any further "accidents." He never remarried and had proven to be a wise and capable leader of the tiny farming village. [1]

Peasant Revolt Edit

The village suffered a peasant revolt [2] in 1158, when a newly discovered jade mine poisoned the local crops and waterways, and starvation went rampant among the villagers. [1]
