Higatsuku banished from Court Edit

Tsuruchi Kaya caught this mis-step and used it to in court to force Higatsuku's exile from court. The angry Shosuro spent the rest of Winter Court lurking outside of the castle, engaging in various sinister plots. He also left a message in the form of a cage in Kaya's office which contained a live scorpion and a dead praying mantis. [2]

Chagatai's Ambition Edit

The news of the Khan's invasion of lion lands reached the Court. The unicorn representative Ide Jiao in privacy exposed the Moshi Daimyo Moshi Amika the true plans of Moto Chagatai during the Khan's Defiance, to take the Imperial Throne by force. Instead to gain the Mantis as allies, he terrified Amika who exposed Jiao to the court. Kaya demanded to the Imperial Chancellor Bayushi Kaukatsu to turn Jiao over to the Emerald Magistrates. Jiao committed seppuku shortly after. [3]
