Family Edit

Shoku was the eldest son (and second-born) of the ronin Yotsu and had seven siblings. They lived in the Mountains of Regret until his mother was killed by an earthquake which destroyed the hut they were living. After the event they left the Mountains for a safer place. [1]

Imperial Heir's Return Edit

In 1111 Yotsu saved the Imperial Heir from Bloodspeakers, at the cost of his youngest son. [2] Shoku accompanied his father and siblings when they moved to Otosan Uchi to return the rescued Heir Hantei Sotorii to his father the Emperor Hantei XXXVIII. Yotsu was given the Yatoshin name, and the children were invited to the Imperial Court as playmates and companions to the boy they had saved. [3]

Married Edit

Shoku quested with a ronin woman named Sabieru, who were to bring his family wealth and power. Shoku and Sabieru also wed each other out of convenience to further aid Shoku's elder sister, Ureiko, in her political crusades. [3]

Death Edit

The date of his death was not recorded, but in 1158 Seou was the only surviving child of Yotsu Yatoshin. [4]
