Bayushi Himaru was a bushi and tactician of the Scorpion Clan.

Training Edit

Himaru was student of the Saibankan Method. [1]

Paneki's Disgrace Edit

In 1172 the Scorpion Clan Champion Bayushi Paneki had fallen to the plague and became an unholy zombie, the Paneki's Disgrace. The Shosuro Daimyo Shosuro Toson sent Himaru to the Lion lands, to advise them the Disgrace had assembled a Plague Zombie army and they were moving there. When Himaru met Ikoma Toruken he could not convince him about the matter, without facts or proper explanations. He gave the Lion a scroll with the personal seal of Toson as last advice. [1]

Destroyer War Edit

In 1173 during the Destroyer War Himaru was appointed to prepare the defenses of Karandetsu Market. When the forces of Kali-Ma were approaching the Shosuro Daimyo Shosuro Toson ordered him to fall back, leaving only a token force to defend it in order to ensure that the Destroyers did not find the situation unusual. Himaru refused to follow the order without any explanation, which put him in a brisk of sudden execution by Toson. Eventually the Daimyo gave the proper information, which devised the destruction of the Destroyer commanders for a final victory, so Himaru obeyed. [2]

Scholar Edit

Himaru was a scholar of tactics. He studied the way the Naga fought to learn new methods of defeating his enemies. In 1198 he was part of a group who entered a Naga temple in the Shinomen Mori to learn about the incidents involving every person within Rokugan who had a direct connection with the Naga, who had vanished or died. The Shosuro Daimyo Shosuro Aroru appointed Shosuro Nitsu as Himaru's bodyguard. Inside the temple he found scrolls which told a Black Pearl had been sent away by the Qatol before the second Great Sleep of the Naga race because he feared it. [3]

Death Edit

They were attacked while within the temple, and fled for their lives. Himaru was mortally wounded and died. [3]
