Patron family: Kitsu family 
Clan: Lion Clan 
Founded: 1st century 
Daimyo: Unknown

The Ise family claimed a history nearly as ancient as the Kitsu they served. [1]

Founding Edit

The Kitsu travels and passages to other Spirit Realms were the cause that denizens of other realms began to follow the Kitsu Shugenja back to Ningen-do. Incidents with ghosts and demons happened, so Kitsu Ise gathered ashigaru to hunt down and exterminate the supernatural threats one at a time. The elders of the Kitsu had been idle against such menace, and Ise had not asked permission to enact his small war. Akodo himself rewarded Ise's determination with his own vassal family name. [1]

Duty Edit

The Ise family served as the strong arm of the Kitsu, protecting their cousins from threats of both the mortal world and other Realms. The Temple of the Lion's Claw located just north of the Kitsu Tombs became their ancestral home. [1] Their martial prowess made them less likely to the kami, and there had not been a true sodan-senzo in the family since the 7th century. [2]

Tsuno Attack Edit

Many Ise members died defending the Kitsu Tombs against the Tsuno attack which happened in 1158. [1]

The following are the known daimyo of the Ise:
