Quelques éclats de jade
The Tortoise were founded in 442 after the Battle of White Stag and Battle of Raging Seas, the Empire‘s first violent encounter with gaijin. The Emperor Hantei Muhaki assumed the throne after the death of his niece, Hantei Yugozohime who was killed by the gaijin during the battle of White Stag. He bestowed minor clan status on Agasha Kasuga and his followers despite the fact that they apparently helped the gaijin leaders to escape from the Imperial Capital. The Tortoise Clan is nearly an Imperial family, performing crucial feats and commiting all manner of devious acts to maintain the Emperor’s power. In many ways, the samurai of the Tortoise Clan serve as the true underhand of the Emperor, with a strong tie to the criminal organizations of the land. Their Clan Champion is Kasuga Taigen.
