Geisha lover of Akodo Toturi


As Bayushi Shoju planned the Scorpion Coup, he feared the leadership and tactical brilliance of the Lion Clan Champion Akodo Toturi. His wife Bayushi Kachiko enlisted the aid of Hatsuko, who was to seduce Toturi and lower his defenses. Shortly before the coup Hatsuko was ordered to poison and kill Toturi.

Hatsuko could not kill Toturi because she had come to love him. Instead, she fed him a paralysing poison, and fled into the night, hiding her love in the Kosuga district. Toturi recovered and led the united clans to victory against the Scorpion Clan at the capital in 1123.
