Legends of Rokugan
Bayushi Baku's Yari
Lore: 35 (Scorpion)
Bayushi Baku died serving the Scorpion Clan loyally, but also by betraying the Scorpion Champion. Baku became aware of an assassination attempt to be made on the Scorpion Champion’s wife and children by 5 traitorous members of the Scorpion hired by outside sources. Instead of informing the Champion, Baku took it upon himself to stop the assassins and gain the glory.
Each assassin was slain by Baku’s Yari and the children saved, but one of the individuals bypassed Baku’s defense and struck a killing blow upon the Scorpion Champion’s wife.
When he found out about Baku’s involvement, the Champion banished each of the individuals to Traitor’s Grove, but placed Baku in a place of “honor” – the only known spirit within Traitor’s Grove placed in defense of the place.
