Hosokawa family 
Patron family: Ikoma family 
Clan: Lion Clan 
Founded: 815 
Daimyo: Unknown

The Hosokawa family was one of the most obscure families in the Empire, a vassal family of the Ikoma. [1]

Founding Edit

The Ikoma needed riders who would always be available to travel the Empire, as they con­stantly found themselves sending agents everywhere to record important events. Shortly after the Return of the Ki-Rin in 815 Ikoma Kyube and his children served with unflagging devotion, and they were granted the Hosokawa family name, being Shiro Kyube their ancestral home, and Hosokawa Mura the pride of their holdings. [2]

Duty Edit

The few Hosokawa in the Empire coordinated the reports of other Lion scribes to the Ikoma Libraries. They were a family who combined the most derided aspects of their Ikoma cousins with the straightfor­ wardness of the Matsu, being described as "utterly uninter­esting." [1]
