Tsuruchi Shusaku

Tsuruchi Shusaku was a bushi and scout of the Mantis Clan. He was considered a Go Master. [1]

The Currency of War Edit

Shusaku was an advisor to the Tsuruchi Daimyo Tsuruchi Fusako. In 1199 a disagreement over a merchant caravan detained by the Crane in the Spine of the World Mountains rapidly escalated into a conflict between the Crane and Mantis Clans. The Crane razed to the groung Waystation Village, forcing the Mantis Clan Champion Yoritomo Hiromi to return from the Colonies to take the field. Fusako ordered her men to defend the Tsuruchi from the impending Daidoji attack. In the battlefield the Crane forces led by Daidoji Tametaka managed to threaten Shusaku's command group, and his shugenja aide, a Moshi priestess, was killed by an Iron Crane. A cease fire was brokered after the Crane replaced the Mantis losses from their caravan. [2]
