A few decades later, following the end of the Red Wine Campaign, Shadow King Kizu had determined that his time of rule should come to an end. And so he and his wife bore three children. Two sons and one daughter.

To each of his three children, he bestowed one of the three paths, and by the time of his death he split his kingdom to be shared by the three of them.

For many years the three children ruled Higura in harmony; however, it was not long before the children began to grow envious of each other’s knowledge.

And with the growth of this envy, it sparked a feudal conflict between the three children which resulted in the split of the Shadow Warrior clan into the three main clans.
