Kyuden Caerdydd - Champions of the Sapphire Throne
The Dragon Clan
The Dragon remain as enigmatic and mysterious as ever, if not more so, living in their mountains and limiting their contacts with the rest of the Empire. In the era of peace brokered by Miya Shikan, the Dragon have focused more than ever on their spiritual side, especially since their current Clan Champion, Togashi Imasu, has spent almost his entire reign closeted in the High House of Light, pursuing meditation and enlightenment. The rest of the Clan has been left to follow its own path, and each family has chosen differently: the Mirumoto and the Tonbo (the former Dragonfly Clan) have focused on building up their military strength to avenge the defeat in the War of Bleeding Flowers, while the Tamori have resumed their centuries-old magical and political rivalry with the Phoenix Clan, and the Kitsuki family have poured their energies into investigating the Empire’s criminal underworld.
• Kitsuki Tanako, sensei of the Jotoman Shinrai dojo in Ryoko Owari, was killed in 1501. Initially it was thought that a member of the Crane Clan was involved but later evidence pointed towards a member of the Badger Clan. Rumors state that the Dragon retaliated against the Badger in 1503 but no testimony was available to confirm this.
• Mirumoto Jinzaki, the Mirumoto daimyo, relinquished control of his family to the winner of a tournament held in 1505. The winner of the tournament, Mirumoto Daikabe, is known to be an aggressive warrior, and favours the Dragon gaining revenge for their military loses to the Lion Clan
