They join up with the Senpet their and begin working with them.
1168-With the aid of the Scorpion the Senpet make some headway in
freeing some of their enslaved kin in The Jewel of the Desert. One
Scorpion samurai named Bayushi Ataki and a Senpet woman named
Serqet fall in love.
1173-The Scorpion continue to help even though there has been
little to no contact with Rokugan. Unknown to the Samurai Kali-Ma had begun her war on Rokugan and had moved into Scorpion lands. During this time most of the Scorpion who knew of the Units mission perished. Serqet bears Ataki a son. She dies during childbirth. Ataki officially recognizes the child as
his son and with the help of his fellow Scorpion raises him as best
as the conditions allow.He is the only child born to these samurai
during the time here.

Bayushi Zekhen in honor of his mothers family.
1189-While trying to free slaves being transported through the
sands the Scorpion and Senpet launch an ambush against the Yodotai.
Unknown to the rebels the Yodotai are aware of the impending attack
and ready for it. A bitter battle is joined with death and glory on both sides. That is until the dead start to rise and attack indescriminatly. In the confusion many more perish. In the darkest moments of battle Zekhen notices a figure in the distance. He feels fear wash over him, but does not bow to it. He makes his way towards the figure and discovers that it is a Ghul Lord. Having heard rumors of such creatures he wastes no time in engaging the creature. After a desperate battle Zekhen manages to slay the beast, but as he turns back to help his fellow warriors he discovers that unfortunately he is only one of a few to survive and the only Scorpion.
1189- Having no where to go and no idea how to get to Rokugan, Zekhen chooses to stay and fulfill his clans promise. Hearing of his deeds in destroying the Ghul Lord the Senpet rulers decide to train Zekhen in the ways of their Ghul Hunters, he accepts their invitation.
1199-Having spent his entire life in the Burning Sands Zekhen has nearly given up any hope of seeing the lands of his Father. The resistance against the Yodatai will last for many more years and he has yet to meet another Rokugani. This he feels is likely to continue with his wandering lifestyle. He continues to try and live in the way of his father the way of Bushido, but he cannot help feeling that he is missing something. It might be the respect for the Senpet gods and people that makes it difficult to completely understand the way. He is a Senpet as well though after all and these people are here in the now. So he will put his feelings aside and do all he can for them.
