Quote: "When snow melts, what do you think it becomes? It becomes Spring!" -Kana Sohma.
Izumi is the older sister of Yuki Namizu. She is the oldest daughter to a rebel clan leader and doctor.
She was taught medics by her mother. Through that she picked up a few things and ended up working to save fallen soldiers
during the war. Her younger sister ran off to right in the revolution, and sadly Izumi couldn't stop her. Izumi prayed every
night for her sister to return safely. Yuki was all she had since her father had been killed, and her mother and village was
burnt to death.
Izumi did her best to rescue orphaned children, fallen men, and sick women. She nursed them all back
to health on her own. That was how she met Shorin Oda. He was a farmer who left his wife and kids in order to fight for the
village he loved. Sadly when he returned, his home had been destroyed and his family slaughtered.
Izumi did her best to revive the half-dead Shorin. When he was completely healed, the two were married.
They had two children: a girl who Izumi named Yuki-ni, and a boy named Hakugin.
