The Phoenix bear the responsibility of the soul of Rokugan on their shoulders. Explosive power filters through these serene samurai, and many struggle with their duty of caretaking the Empire’s soul without losing their own. Defending the Emerald Empire while remaining passive, pure, and wise. Wielding the power of the elements while remaining humble and kind. 

This is nowhere more emphasized than through Earth Scion Isawa Tadaka. Through intense research, Tadaka senses an approaching darkness, and he has a plan to stop it as only the Phoenix can. But will he sacrifice all that he is to achieve it?  What cost must be paid to defend the Emerald Empire? What can the young Earth Scion do to stop the approaching storm? And is he truly best suited to the task?
