Question for the Writers: Asahina

Recommended Posts

 
Need some help with something from Emerald Empire
 
On page 56, in the description of the Victory of No Strike, it describes an Isawa Tomokazu seeking vengeance against the Lion for their aggression against the Phoenix, and the Crane Champion Doji Ritsuko riding out to block him, enduring his elemental assaults until the kami would no longer listen to Tomokazu's requests, and this leading to the Phoenix's surrender.
 
Of course, in the original Old5R, a very similar story does play out related to the exact same war: However, the Isawa is Isawa Asahina and the Doji is Doji Kiriko, the daughter of the Crane Champion, and Asahina is striking at the Crane for interfering with the Phoenix's desire for revenge
 
So, my question is: Is Tomokazu and Ritsuko a separate but extremely similar incident from Asahina and Kiriko (possibly due to Kiriko or Ritsuko being inspired by the other), or is Tomokazu and Ritsuko an intentional replacement for Asahina and Kiriko, maybe with a namechange from Tomokazu so he could actually found the Asahina family? Or are the names Tomokazu and Ritsuko an error somehow in Emerald Empire and they should have been Asahina and Kiriko all along?
 
Thank you for your guidance.

Just replying to let you know you're not being ignored...I didn't write this part of the book, so I can't answer the question. If you don't get an answer in a day or so, I'll ping the other writers to see if whoever did write this part can answer it.

I did pass both of these questions to the Story Team but, given the holiday season, I think they've had other things on their minds. I'll ping them again later this week, if no answers arrive before then.

As this thread is still in need of an answer I ask as well. Is there an official response on the matter. The creation of the Asahina was a very inspiring story from the old lore.
