Age of Emperors
The Matsu Daimyo, Noriko is the essential Matsu, honorable, powerful, and hot-blooded. She has come to Otosan Uchi for two reasons. First she demands war with the Crane. Too long has the insults of Kosanten Shiro and Toshi Ranbo gone unavenged. Second her daughter, Matsu Nene, is weak and of little use to the Matsu except as a prospective marriage and so she is looking for the most powerful husband she can acquire to aid against the Crane. Doji Aritomo has attempted to meet with her to settle their Clans’ differences but she has refused to see him.
