Legend of the 5 Rings - Alt Timeline
Scorpion Clan Champion Bayushi Menonai
“We have taken Shinomen Tower because the Unicorn could no longer be trusted to defend it. We have taken Shinomen Tower because we could, the garrison fell before us like cowards. We have taken Shinomen Tower because we do not recognise the authority of the Shogun, Gaijin have no right to sit so close to the Light of Heaven” – Bayushi Menonai
The Scorpion Clan Champion has been on a roller coaster ride, he became a trusted advisor to the Emperor, formed an alliance with the Seppun, then he declared war on the Unicorn, defied the Shogun and lost his standing in court, the war went badly and the Scorpion took great losses. Menonai had to make a public apology to the Shogun and it seemed like he was done, but almost immediately after those events he was made the interim caretaker for the Emerald Magistrates during the period between Doji Mifune’s disappearance and Togashi Mako’s appointment. And once again he stands tall in court.
