It is with sad regret that I must inform the Josho family in the matter of the final passing of Naga Yusaki. If there are any of you left in the world I am unsure. I speak now to you directly, for in the end there was no one left. Enemies, murderer’s, betrayer’s, and executioners there were plenty, friends and allies there were none. At the end he stood alone, one loan figure, fighting for his beliefs upholding his duty. I spent his final day with him, I watched and saw his final struggle against his enemy, it was like no other act I have witnessed.

During the day, a man he met on his travels asked him if he was a man of honour, and he simply replied “I am a man of Duty”. Some will think they know the difference, I say one man truly understood it. If the man had seen the end and understood what Yusaki meant by duty he would have revealed his secret with no hesitation.

As his allies, clan and friends betrayed him he walked the path he had planned. Stalwart, unbending, determined to uphold his duty.

As the sun begun to set over his enemies’ stronghold he faced his greatest foe. His best friend, his most loyal servant, a man who had sworn his loyalty a thousand times before. This time he had shunned him, choose to block the way instead of clear it. Yusaki through down his sword, and spoke of honour and duty, the moments that followed brought his greatest betrayal. As the life came back to his eyes for the third time of the day, he simply asked, “am I doing the right thing” I simply replied with “I have not seen what you have seen, only you know the answer”. His reply was simple, the words for a total heal prayer, he stood once more, and pressed on to do his duty.

As the day drew to a close he came face to face with his enemy, un-phased, no fear in his mind and duty in his heart. Within the confines of the secret chamber, where none would witness, masks were removed, words were exchanged, offers made, none excepted. Words to condemn Yusaki to the thing he hated most. Nothing would alter the course he had set.

Yusaki was executed in the most callus and evil of ways, only as he breathed his final breath, cold and alone did he understand his sacred duty. It was not that which he imagined it to be, and yet it was complete.

To his betrayers I say this, I have seen the corruption, I have seen the darkness, and I have seen the evil.


His duty fulfilled
Amlas eyes can see the truth
the mask is removed

I have been away so long and not seen my friend the most noble of friends, I had fought at his side so many times I have lost count,
i was always been honoured to fight with him.

Who is it then that has betrayed My friend, as you say a man of duty, unbending, clear of thought, who is it that had murdered him
as you describe, for surely this can not be left unanswered.

I am Matsu Battle dragon, and Lord Naga Yusaki was my friend and so shall I always consider him so. I want to know who killed him
in a manner deemed to be so evil.

Can you answer me ? Nameless One ?

We have heard the words of one who does not reveal his or her name.

I have heard that the gates of the Imperial Palace are currently barred to all in response to an attack.

I would counsel against rash words until we here further of events.

Goodbye Yusaki.

He is, as ever was, and despite all else that may yet be, my friend. He will remain my friend until the end of all things.

Lord Masaru Tao Chai Talibah’s counsel is wise. Rash and hasty words should be avoided at this time. There may be much that I know, and yet more that I do not. That which I may choose to speak of is not something for now.

To the Nameless one, you have my gratitude – news that you bring, sad tidings though they are, is news none the less.

Naga offered me shelter when I was at risk even though it gained him nothing. I will hold to my offer and stand on his wall if help is needed to defend your land.

If you know something I want to here it now,
my anger mounts for I am battle, why is this being kept so quiet,
what did my friend discover that warrants this silence ?

How many times has he stood for the land and fallen for it, and now when
he himself suffers he seems abandoned, I do not Understand, what do I have to do
to get answers......

My sorrow is endless at the loss of this great man.

Once I have a full account of his passing I will inform you all.

Please listen to the wisdom of Lord Masaru Tao Chai Talibah. Mourn but do not act until the truth is known.


Of endless duty
He stood against deception
Ever the stalwart.

Lord Neko.

It would be a great kindness to all if you would reveal what you know regarding the death of Yusaki. Other than the most honourable actions of Lord Zu the entire event is shielded from scrying thus the only information we have comes from this 'Nameless'.

With Honour.

I’m sure there will be an imperial announcement soon.

Matsu needed filling in on some facts that I will not publicly reveal to calm her rage. Leave the dragon to mourn the loss of her friend. You should also be in mourning for the loss of your Lord

I will miss my friend.

I pray his soul sits on the wheel for a time,

I will wait on the news, of who and how.

Then ill decide who, when and how.

Whilst the politics of the situation surrounding his death is above my head, I will be sad to not fight alongside Naga again, in this life at least.

He was a stalwart fellow I was always happy to fight alongside.

The loss of Lord Naga, sadly, happened some time ago.

I only wish I had noticed sooner so that I could have helped my friend avoid such a path.

A report has been made regarding how the ronin fell. I thank all those who stood in defence of our Emperor, the Jade Council will do what it can to make reparations if needed.
