Empire of Secrets
Shortly after the nine Kami fell to earth, their celestial parents, Lady Sun and Lord Moon shed tears and blood, which gave rise to humanity. After wandering far and wide, interacting with mankind, the Kami agreed that it was their duty to protect humanity. They held a tournament amongst themselves to determine who should lead. Hantei was victorious and became first Emperor of Rokugan. He then ordered his siblings to gather followers and pacify the land of Rokugan. Thus were the Great Clans born.
Stalwart Hida forged the Crab Clan.
Delicate Lady Doji breathed life into the Crane Clan.
Enigmatic Togashi and his followers became the Dragon Clan.
Militant Akodo gathered to his banner the Lion Clan.
Humble Shiba created the scholarly Phoenix Clan.
Manipulative Bayushi crafted the Scorpion Clan, in the shadows.
Compassionate Shinjo created the Ki-Rin clan, later known as the Unicorn.
