Born in a small village of peaceful orcs and half-orcs in Tien Xia, Mikomi has had a difficult life. Before she was born, their nomadic tribe sent an envoy to the local daimiyo lord asking his permission for the orcs to set up a peaceful settlement in on his land and to become vassals of his. Racist and arrogant, the daimiyo responded by sending his four best samurai to slaughter the village to the last child; telling his retainers that they were threatening to attack the daimiyo. The four strode into town and killed almost everyone.
When the village elder, with his dying breath, asked how the lord could do such a thing, one of the samurai, Kenichi, realized what had happened. Torn between his devotion to his lord, and his devotion to bushido, he told the others to stop, that they were acting dishonorably, and serving a dishonorable man. The other three turned on him, but Kenichi managed to flee with the last remaining survivor, an infant half-orc girl.
After years of struggle, Kenichi had taught the young Mikomi everything about honor, bushido, and finding a worthwhile master. Unfortunately, while trying to pass the crown of the world, the other three samurai caught up with the pair, and Kenichi was killed, but not before downing the other two. Mikomi took up her fallen master's sword, and managed to strike down the last heavily injured man with a lucky blow, and then continued to journey to the inner sea, where she eventually found a group worth her dedication and time . . . the pathfinders.
