During a court function he saw one of the man onboard the pirate ship. Funewara publicly accused of piracy Tsuruchi Hikari, a well-known relative of Tsuruchi Ichiro, the Tsuruchi Daimyo. A group of samurai discovered that Hikari was innocent, as he was onboard the ship to join his beloved, the ronin Sachiko. The woman was a resentful former Crane, who preyed upon the hated Mantis Clan, origin of her misfortune. Hikari had ended their relationship and he wished to beg Sachiko to surrender to the Emperor's justice. [1]
