Committed seppuku at the Topaz Championship rather than continue living without her love, Shosuro Atari. Dejiko could no longer stand her bitter betrothal to Ikoma Zai and, upon seeing Atari once more and experiencing his presence, could not bare another moment of life without him.
Dejiko was a hostage in the Ikoma court and a highly prized artisan of the Doji Court. Many, including the Imperial Advisor, Kakita Yoshi, will mourn her passing. Her death is one more catalyst in the burgeoning Crane/Lion war.
