Asahina Kikui Edit

Asahina Kikui was betrothed but her heart owned to Atasuke. The Lion knew nothing of Kikui's secret alliances or maho practices. Kikui knew Iuchiban was back at Rokugan, and she believed Atasuke would stand against the Heartless, and he would inevitably be destroyed unless she saved him. Kikui bargained the murder of Toku, the Monkey Clan Champion, and all his family, in return for Atasuke's safety. [5] Kikui failed, being vanished by Naka Tokei, the Grand Master of the Elements.
