The Era of the Heavenly Empress
The Lion Clan Champion
Akodo Bushi School
Married Bayushi Saiori in 1170. Marriage secret until second ceremony in 1171.
Hoshi ascended to power when he slew the maho, Ikoma Benjiro, the Lion Clan Champion made him the Damiyo of the maho’s holdings. With his brother Sozen, and cousin Iroden, he led a small force and wiped out the remaining pockets of resistance.
Hoshi fell in love with Bayushi Siaori and risked his honour to be with her.
In 1170, he began the Fukuharashi tournament, a mixed kenjitsu and iajitsu tournament.
In 1171, he led a force into Unicorn lands, married Saiori officially.
In 1172, he continued to push in the Unicorn-Lion war. However, the Unicorn outmaneuvered the Lion, and he was one of the few commanders to bring his legion home. He was rewarded by being made heir to the Akodo family damiyoship and the Lion Clan Championship.
This came to pass quickly, as Akodo Shigetoshi retired at the end of 1173, during Winter Court, with Hoshi becoming not only the Akodo Clan Champion, but also the Lion Clan Champion as a result.
