The Era of the Heavenly Empress
A brash dragon duelist
Zenshin claims to be the half brother of Mirumoto Mareshi, the family damiyo. He appeared in the empire late in 1171, and no one had previously seen him outside of Dragon lands.
Neither Mareshi, nor his father Mirumoto Daini, have commented on this, confirming or denying the claim. While many question his claim to this linage, none boldly enough to deny him outright. After all, if it was untrue, why has no one spoken out against Mareshi?
