Its founding member, Yoritomo Komori, was a half-spirit shugenja, his father a koumori. He was able to privately summon the spirit of the emperor's deceased sister, Toturi Tsudao, so the Emperor could consult with her. As a boon for his services and discretion, Komori was awarded that day with the title of Bat Clan Champion.  The Emperor also recognized the name Komori as the family name of the new Minior Clan. 
The entire clan lived in the Island of Lost Wilderness, with capital in Kyuden Komori.  During the Age of Conquest the Bat Clan founded the Lost Traveler Village in the Colonies, their first known settlement out of their ancestral lands. 
Moving Forward Edit
In the brief time since their founding, Komori had been gathering followers and building his clan. Their primary goal at this time was to create a school for the clan. It was not immediately revealed what duty the Righteous Emperor laid upon the Bat Clan, but it was likely, because of the profession and nature of its founder, that the Bat Clan's shugenja would serve the Empire by either summoning kami directly or researching the spirit realms. Komori also devoted a great deal of time to the study of magic that could be used to transport samurai over great distances, and the school he created might incorporate this as well.

Long Range Communications Edit
During the Age of Exploration the Bat delivered messages across hundreds of miles, gaving their Mantis allies crucial information during the early days. In the Empire the Bat created a network of magical communication between courts, winning significant allies and favors by making its communication magic available to others. 
See Samurai of the Bat Clan for a listing of notable members of the Clan, both current and historic.
The Bat were mostly identified with black color. 
When a new child was born the Bat lighted a candle at the edge of the jungle, a sign of tribute to their koumori allies. Those children who lacked the gift to speak with the kami were trained as bushi in the Yoritomo school. Those who trained as shugenja were not allowed to enter the jungle before their gempukku, when the senior sensei took each student into the jungle for the first time, to meditate in communion with the surrounding spirits. MAny of their rituals were mostly celebrated at night, including weddings and funerals.
