Togashi Ango

Togashi Ango

Togashi Ango was a Tattooed Monk of the Dragon Clan. He wore a Centipede tattoo in the neck. [1]

Theological Dissensions Edit

Ango believed that the way of nature and the way of man were ultimately incompatible. What others called “harmony” was actually victory over one's own surroundings, not the balance it was purported it to be. His views were considered controversial among his keen, although he was not discouraged from pursuing what he saw as the truth. [2]

Colonies Edit

During the Spider's exodus Ango requested to join them as he wanted to meet and understand the banished Spider better. He eventually became fascinated with the Fudoism, an interpretation of the [Tao of Shinsei|Tao]] that emphasized a self-centered approach to life. He also came across as a very strange monk, who described himself as an “ally of humanity.” To him, the world was a test, and he seemed interested in how everyone else was performing within it. ref>Second City - The People, p. 51</ref>

Colonial Winter Court - 1198 Edit

Ango tended the Temple of the Rising Dragon in the Second City. [3] Mirumoto Niwa was appointed as his yojimbo. [4] There he met several samurai, including Hiruma Sawai. They attended several meetings where the teachings of the Fudoism were presented. While Ango sought to understand, it seemed that Sawai really embraced these philosophies. [1]

Second City Riots Edit

During the Siege of the Second City he was sent to the Dragon Embassy alongside his yojimbo Mirumoto Niwa after the Ninth Imperial Legion seized the Temple District. Ango was determined to give aid to the heimin in the Peasant District, where the city defenders were fighting the attackers, but Kitsuki Horume told it would be a death sentece, as the Imperial District was surrounded by the Imperial Legion. [3]

Purge of Fudoism Edit

In 1199 the threat of P'an Ku had gone. Ango and Horume were reported by Shiba Fusimi, the Ivory Court scribe, that the newly restored Imperial Governor of the Colonies Otomo Suikihime had relinquished the Crab from the Fudo purge efforts, which were entrusted to the Dragon. [5] His friend Hiruma Sawai had not been one of those criminals who razed the city during the Age of Madness, and Ango issued him travel papers to leave the city as Sawai requested. [1] The Crab tracked his friend down, and took him as prisoner to the Ivory Court. The Kuni Daimyo Kuni Renyu presented the papers signed by Ango as a slight in their duties to erradicate the Fudo cult. Suikihime ordered the Dragon to relinquish their immigration records to the Scorpion for review. [4]
