Kaede and the Captain of the Imperial Guard Seppun Ishikawa, spirited away the young Hantei Sotorii to Phoenix Clan lands so that he could receive a hasty gempukku and claim the Emerald Throne, as ordered by her father, who provided the distractions needed for their escape. She sent a letter to her brother Isawa Tadaka, warning him of the events and to prepare for her arrival with the boy.
