Legend of the Five Rings: Suikoden
~Dead: Ikoma Nejire~
Saboteur of Otosan Uchi during the Clan Coup
Ikoma Nejire was a Lion shugenja trained in the Isawa Shugenja school. Nejire lived at Otosan Uchi where he courted Shiba Akutiso. She was also being courted by Daidoji Rubaiten.
During the first day of the Scorpion Coup the Scorpion released all the prisoners of Kyuden Kokai. Among them was a group of rebels determined to exact revenge upon the Scorpion for their assault, who were led by Akutiso. During the escape a Bayushi guardsman killed her, and in turn was killed by Rubaiten and Nejire.
Once rivals, Akutiso’s death rallied both men to cooperate in inflicting as much damage on the Scorpion as possible. They worked as canny saboteurs during the Coup. In the fourth day of the Coup their target was an encampment in the south of the city. They spread barrels of fish oil across the River of the Sun, destroying several junks set up as blockades against attacks launched from the sea.
They were trapped by Scorpion forces in the sake works Lion’s Rage. Rubaiten managed to escape severely wounded, but Nejire was killed.
