Titles: Master of Air

Isawa Eju was a shugenja of the Phoenix Clan and the Master of Air.

Sensei Edit

Eju was the master of Takao, when the boy was young, until his death. [1]

Master of Air Edit

The elderly Eju had been Master of Air for many years, but he suffered a debilitating illness. Eju began a quest for a heir, who was eventually found in a courtier apprentice, Isawa Uona, who patroned by Asahina Tomo had undergone a ritual that awakened her true powers [2] in 1117. She returned to Phoenix lands and trained with Isawa Eju for six years before he died and uona took his place on the Elemental Council [3] in 1123. His illness had left him crippled, and by the end, he had lost the use of his arms and legs entirely, and the healers of the Asako family could do nothing but lessen his pain. [4] [5]

Sources Conflict
The sources relating to this article are in conflict with each other.
"Otosan Uchi: The Scorpion's Sting" page 56 claims Eju was part of the Masters who participated to free Otosan Uchi during the Scorpion Coup. In "Winter Court: Kyuden Seppun" page 115 Eju died before winter court of Hantei XXXVIII ended, so WC:KS remains. --Oni no Pikachu (talk) 14:41, July 9, 2012 (UTC)
