The Crane Clan
1397 and earlier
The CRANE clan, perhaps the most traditional, have changed little. The Kakita school fell out of favour somewhat, as the exigencies of combat pressed more young crane into the Daidoji Iron Warrior school. Duelling had become a rarer thing in battles, albeit returning into vogue now that peace has returned.
The Crane borders with the Lion Clan have moved so many times that there are wide tracts of contested turf that the Emperor has deemed Imperial territory until enough magistrates can pour through the legality of who owns what.
