Isawa Kaede is the eldest daughter of Isawa Ujina, and the only issue of his first marriage. She is quiet, studious, and deeply in tune with the Void. There are none who doubt that she will take her father’s place among the Elemental Masters.
There has been a snag, however, in that the he betrothed, Akodo Toturi, has become Champion of the Lion clan. Under the traditional rules of marriage, she, being of lower status, would join his family. The political snarl has only grown, as Lion diplomats have pointed out that there was one a Kitsu Master of Fire, why not an Akodo Master of the Void? The Phoenix are not interested in giving the Lion any say in their internal politics, and so the marriage is circling the drain before it has even begun. All of this has devastated Kaede, who is said to truly love Toturi.
