Ancestral Armor of the Dragon

Ancestral Armor of the Dragon Clan

Ancestral Weapons and Armor is a broad term containing the weapons and armor used by the founders of the Great Clans, Great Clan family founders and the founders of the Minor Clans.

Minor Clans Edit

Minor Clans were created by the Hantei, and formally given a katana from the Emperor which would become their Ancestral Weapon for the rest of the clan's existence. If the Minor Clan was ever disgraced and their Clan status revoked, their clan weapon was broken by the Emperor's hand. [1]

Ancestral Swords Edit

In 1132, Amaterasu ordered that the Ancestral Swords be scattered among the heavens as retribution for the death of Onnotangu. Most lay there still. Not to be confused with the Celestial Swords.
