Exchange of Hostages

Exchange of Hostages

Hitojichi was the Rokugani word for "hostage". A hostage was taken with agreement or notification of the hostage's family. This was done for many reasons, most often to insure good behavior in an enemy. Occasionally, if one family wished to assert superiority over the other, their hostage was required to swear permanent fealty. [1]
