Kyuden Caerdydd - Champions of the Sapphire Throne
The Unicorn Clan
Few Clans have been more frustrated by the enforced peace of Miya Shikan than the Unicorn. Unlike the Lion, the Unicorn did not have a position of advantage prior to Shikan’s ascension, and the inability to convert their mighty cavalry into territorial or political gains has considerably weakened their standing in the Empire. Thankfully, their immense wealth, supplemented by a monopoly on trade with the Senpet Empire, has allowed them to avoid falling too far in prestige. The Clan is especially concerned by the rise in power of the Scorpion, and Unicorn magistrates fret endlessly over the growth in crime, gambling, smuggling, and opium addiction all across the Empire. Such villainy thrives, they say, because Miya Shikan’s peace has prevented them from chastising the treacherous Scorpion on the battlefield. Of all Clans, the Unicorn would probably be the most pleased to see the enforced truce of the last thirty years come to an end.
• The Unicorn has formed alliances with the Crane and Dragon Clans, two clans that share the Unicorn Clan’s enmity for the Lion Clan.
Good Relations: Crane, Dragon
Poor Relations: Lion, Scorpion
