Non Crab "Champions" Edit

One time in recorded history, the Crab Clan Champion was not a Crab. Following a battle between the crab and scorpion where both champions died, the Emperor at the time was so furious that he did not accept the rule of the next Champion. Instead he temporarily appointed two Seppun sozokunin, or Acting Champions, to rule until the next Winter Court to ensure the differences were resolved without more bloodshed.[1]
