The Dancing Cricket was a large kobune, one of only four ships in the possession of the Tsuruchi. [1]

Imperial Ship Edit

The kobune was built as part of a large naval force by the Emerald Champion in search of a notorious Yasuki pirate. Following the pirate's defeat, the ship was given to the ronin who commanded it in the Champion's name, and many other in the next centuries. [1]

Tsuruchi Ship Edit

The ship had been lost by a Crane courtier in a game of Fortunes and Winds. The new owner was a ronin who gained a long-term employment by the Tsuruchi. It was manned by experienced sailors, mostly ronin, and a few Tsuruchi to repel boarders. [1]

Known Captains Edit
