The Kaiu

The Kuni

Sinister in appearance and deed, the Kuni are amongst the most feared shugenja families in the Empire. The Kuni Shugenja School emphasises the Crab tradition of fighting creatures of the Shadowlands.

The Toritaka

Once known as the Falcon Clan, this small family was absorbed into the Crab. They are highly knowledgeable about ghosts and spirits of all kinds.

The Yasuki

Strangely at odds with the other Crab families, the Yasuki are slight of build and devious of mind. They were once a family of the Crane clan. The Yasuki Courtier School teaches the use of commerce for gaining the favour of others.
