The Empire Reborn
The Dragon Clan
The Enigmatic Mystics
While the roles and the duties of the other Great Clans have always been relatively straightforward, the Dragon Clan has always been something of an enigma. Founded by the Kami Togashi, the most mysterious of the children of the Sun and Moon, the Dragon Clan was founded with the purpose to watch over the rest of the Empire, and watch they did. For more than one thousand years, the Dragon remained almost entirely apart from the other clans, engaging them in battle rarely and in court only slightly more frequently. Few could claim to understand the Dragon or their motivations, at least until the Clan War, when at last the Kami Togashi, still alive in spirit if not in flesh, led the early days of the campaign against Fu Leng, when the other clans were still at one another’s throats. The Dragon suffered significant losses during the Clan War, and even more in the years immediately following, but for the first time they truly gained the respect of the other clans. The Dragon Clan was also hit hard during the Gaijin Plague, resulting in a healthy disdain for the foreign invaders.
The main families of the Dragon are:
- The Mirumoto are the previous lords of the clan and the practitioners of the two-blade style.
- The Kitsuki represent the clan in court and serve as its magistrates.
- The monks of the Togashi order are the sensei and philosophers of the clan.
- The Tamori serve as priests of the kami and guide the clan’s spirit.
