Byakko Ibun is the story of Suzuno Osugi, the Priestess of Byakko. It's not only her story, however: it will also show the backgrounds and adventures of her Seishi (Tatara, Subaru, Tokaki, etc.) It takes place 100 years (book time) after Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden (where Suzuno was briefly seen as a 8-year-old) and around 60-70 years before the original Fushigi Yuugi (Suzuno and Tatara died almost at the end of it)
The first chapter also has the apparition of a foreigner spellcaster named Nirusha, who turns out to be the younger and apparently still kind self of Miboshi from the Seiryuu Seishi. Said chapter focuses on him and his young friend Reipin, whom he renames Neiran.
