Hoju was born as the new year came into being. A comet was passing over head as young Hoju was brought into the world. His mother died in childbirth and his father already had many children to look after. He was a poor farmer in what was once Dragonfly clan lands. Hoju was taken to the local monastery and was eagerly taken in by the monks.
Hoju excelled at his training, both martial and spiritual. He showed wisdom far beyond his years, and a keen intellect. He has always been a fair and kind man who showed little of the xenophobia displayed by many of the peoples of his land. To this end he asked to be allowed to study the religious teachings of the Elven ambassadors from the land of Faerun. He quickly mastered their language and although their culture was less ordered than his he came to see the good in it.
His brother monks realised that Hoju could be a force for good in the world, and his birth pointed to a great destiny. To this end he was sent to the Miyagishima family of the Lion clan to assist with Martial Arts training of their young warriors. It was also felt that this would give Hoju a chance to pass on his wisdom to the young warriors as well as learn of the outside world and how he could help it.
Hoju's accepting nature and language skills meant that he became fast friends with Toshiro and Sadako. He has been able to help the boys with their training and forged a strong bond with them.
