The Rice Farmer was a legendary man in a peasant tale. It was said that he grew bitterly disillusioned with his Crane lords, who left him to keep rice enough for his family to barely stay alive, despite how bountiful was the harvest. The next year, the weather was bad and the tax collectors took all the rice. The Rice Farmer tracked them down and took back the rice, fleeing into the forest to lead a peasant uprising. The tale said he brought the Crane to their knees and forced them to realize the peasants were essential for samurai. The Crane Clan Champion raised the Rice Farmer to become a samurai and then allowed him to commit seppuku, sparing the rest of the peasants. [1]
