Yotsu Shinzai was a shugenja of the Yotsu family.

Imperial Winter Court Edit

Shinzai was at Toshi Ranbo when the Imperial Winter Court was held in 1199. He met Hida Tadama, and invited him to an afternoon party of philosophy, a discussions of the spirit realms and other mystical matters. Eventually, the Crab went on berserker, nearly killing Kuni Tomokazu. Tadama regained his control aided by the Celestial Dragon, who chose to make its presence felt by all present at the assembly. [1]

Death Edit

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 knocked from the Temple and crashed down on Shinzai. She was bearing the sacred Shield of the Devil's Chase, whose power finally destroyed the oni. [2] The square where the oni died was planted with trees commemorating those who fell in the rampage, the Grove of Darkness Denied. [3]
