Saiga was appointed as an ambassador  of the Alliance of Minor Clans to the Great Clans, and he was eager to prove his worthy. [2] Saiga eventually joined the Spider Clan. [3]

Death Edit

Saigo was at Toshi Ranbo when the Imperial Winter Court was hold in 1199. During the courtly event known as the Devil's Chase, a traditional ending to the Winter Court, in which a procession of priests was led through the Palace by the Devil Chaser, a priest bearing ancient artifacts and performing ceremonial song and dance, Iweko Miaka's yojimbo, Seppun Asagako, revealed to be an oni, who rampaged through the city. Desperate to put an end to the music that was preventing it from changing shape, the oni stormed into the Ichidou District, intent on attacking the shugenja atop the Temple of the Seven Fortunes, which was playing the Devil's Chase music. The demon of Jigoku was eventually destroyed in front of the Temple, but unfortunately Saiga was part of the casualties. He sacrificed himself to sever a connection which was giving the oni a "power boost" from Jigoku. [4] The square where the oni died was planted with trees commemorating those who fell in the rampage, the Grove of Darkness Denied. [5]
