Dogen was an abbot of the Temple of Osano-Wo. In the year 527 he counseled the Crab Clan Champion Hida Oshu to expel Gorinno and his followers of the Order of the Five Rings as soon as possible to prevent the wrath of Osano-Wo. Oshu ordered Gorinno to leave the Crab lands, despite their arrival the previous year was instrumental to break the Siege of Shiro Kuni. This act led to open conflict between Fortunist and Shintaoist sects of the Brotherhood of Shinsei through the Empire. [1]
