City of Lies
The Bayushi Bushi School
Founded by the Kami whose name they bear, the Bayushi Bushi School embodies the Scorpion Clan’s unique blend of subtlety, misdirection, and deadly grace. If the Bayushi are not renowned for their warriors, it is for good reason – the students of this school prefer anonymity. A Scorpion seeks not glory but victory, and when an oponent underestimates his abilities, victory is almost assured.
The Bayushi style is highly unorthodox compared to other schools, relying on feints, disarming techniques, and methods of disconcerting enemies like dueling left-handed. A Bayushi is told to strike quickly and leave the enemy unable to retailiate. “Strike First, Strike Last” is the mantra inscribed on the walls of the dojo in Kyuden Bayushi.
