Titles: Crab Clan Champion

Hida Yamate was the Crab Clan Champion during the rule of Hantei XIII.

Conqueror Edit

For years the Shadowlands had attacked unrestlessly the Crab lands, but in 534 the waves of oni finally tapered off. Hida Yamate began looking for opportunities to restore his clan's fortunes. The Crane Clan seemed distracted as they and the Scorpion Clan were being forced to merge by the Imperial Advisor Gorinno, religious leader of the movement of the movement known as Five Rings, Five Clans. In 535 Hida Yamate sent an army into the southern Crane lands, but the Crab met an unexpected defeat when Master Sensei Kakita Wayozu unleashed her inner gift, causing the disappearance of herself, her fellow artisans, and the entire Crab army. [1]

Aftermath Edit

The Crane territories they taken supplied new resources which proved beneficial on the long term. It would be over a generation before Crane political pressure forced the Crab to give back their conquests. [2]
