Please note: This article is about the courtier. For other uses of the term, please see Kaoru (disambiguation).

Matsu Kaoru was an honorless courtier of the Lion Clan in the 8th century. [1]

Chased Edit

Kaoru killed the Crane Clan Champion's son in a duel that appeared to be fair in court. A Crane bushi, Doji Yujiro, knew that Kaoru had used poison to weaken his opponent. Yujiro became a disavowed ronin to take revenge on the Matsu. Eventually Kaoru was killed during an attack on the Dragon before Yujiro could complete his mission. [1]

Eternal Chase Edit

Yujiro's spirit did not rest. His greatest task, the assassination of Matsu Kaoru, was never accomplished, and thus each time Kaoru was reincarnated, Yujiro returned as well, possessing one of his descendants. [2]
