Technique Rank: 5
Path of Entry: Hida Bushi 4
Path of Egress: Hida Bushi 5
Special: Must have taken the Path Hida Elite Guard

TECHNIQUE: HIDA’S CHOSEN
All Hida Elite Guardsman learn to channel the legendary power of the First Crab, and those who have learned this lesson especially well are recruited into the Champion’s Guard. You may gain a bonus equal to 3x your Defense Skill Rank to both your damage rolls and your TN to Be Hit. This bonus replaces the bonus gained through the Hida Elite Guard Path (see p. 51). It is also the case that your duty demands you devote yourself absolutely to defending the lives of whoever has been placed in your charge. This is not a demand for pointless self sacrifice; to the contrary, the inspiration you draw from Hida inspires you to succeed in the pursuit of your duty no matter what the hazard. The Hida, after all, may fight and bleed, but they do not fail. At any point in a skirmish, you may select a single person or creature. As long as you are within 30’ of that person or creature
and he/it is alive, you may reduce any Wound Penalties that you suffer by your Willpower + Defense Skill Rank. Under these circumstances, you also gain a bonus to your TN to Be Hit equal to your Willpower + Awareness.
