The Phoenix Clan
1397 and earlier
The PHOENIX saw a shift of internal power. The Isawa have a reputation as the most prodigious and talented school of shugenja in Rokugan, and the Emperor was quick to draft them all into his armies. Few saw the end of the wars and the famous Elemental legion has been disbanded. The Shiba family, traditionally are the yojimbo (bodyguards) of the Isawa and Agasha, led by the more warlike shugenja of their own family, took a more aggressive role in their protection, rising up to head the Clan until the wounds can be fully healed.
