Titles: Daidoji Daimyo

Daidoji Katsunan was the Daidoji Daimyo during the rule of Hantei XX.

Fighting the Lion Edit

In one of the several fights between the Crane and Lion, Katsunan captured Tonfajutsen and burned it to the ground. [1]

Great Famine Edit

In 661 the effects of a Great Famine began to be noticed, and Katsunan fought a trade war with the Yasuki over the rice supply. It did almost as much damage to Rokugan's economy as the particularly bad weather of these years. [2]

Death Edit

In 663 the economical dispute escalated to open war when the Crab Clan Champion Hida Tsuneko invaded the Crane lands in the Rice War. The Crab overrun much of the southern Crane lands seizing Jukami Mura in the Battle of Honor's Flight. Katsunan was cut down by Tsuneko herself when he attempted to challenge her in a duel. [3]
