|Victory With No Strike|
| Major Forces: Phoenix Clan, |
| Generals: Isawa Asahina, |
|Battles of Rokugan|
The Lion had exhausted their own food resources, so they decided to expand in the Phoenix and Crane lands. For months, the Crane maneuvered in the Imperial Court, until they had the upper hand, forcing the Lion to sign a non-aggression treaty. This very night the Lion invaded the Tanima sano Futatsu Taisho, and marched upon the Phoenix lands. 
Invasion of the Phoenix lands Edit
The Crane were trapped by their own treaty, which forbade to send support to their Phoenix allies. The Lion easily reached Shiro Shiba. The invaders were presed by the Crane, who had proclaimed a trade embargo against the invaders, cutting off Lion supply lines. During a battle with Phoenix forces at the borders of Sleeping Thunder Mountain the Lion were forced to negotiate a truce when they were caught by a force of Daidoji 'bringing supplies' to the besieged Phoenix.  The true hero of the battle was Miya Naganori, who had found the trick researching ancient laws, and had delivered it to the Crane Clan Champion, despite he had been severed from a leg in the journey. He endured to survive until he moved to Kyuden Doji. 
Phoenix Revenge Edit
The Wounding of Kiriko Edit
The Crane Clan Champion's daughter Doji Kiriko rode out to stop Asahina in the Kimura village that was threatened by his predations. She took up a stance directly in front of him, never fighting back, and mutely stood her ground against him. Behind her, horrified Crane peasants watched as Asahina struck at her unyielding form.
She took many wounds from his sword, but when he had nearly killed her he awoke from his rage and realized his terrible error. Kiriko had not only saved the Crane villagers, she had also saved Asahina from himself, a victory with no strike. 
Aftermath and Atonement Edit
In recompense for his misdeeds against the Crane, he left the Phoenix and the Council of Five. After nursing Kiriko back to full health, he asked to marry her. Together they went on to found the Asahina family of the Crane.
