The Ishi family was a vassal family in service to the Kaiu family of the Crab Clan.

Founding Edit

The Ishi family was one of the most ancient vassal families in the Empire. According to the legend Kaiu Ishi forged a suit of armor that saved the life of the Crab Clan Champion Hida Kenzan and for this was granted a vassal family. [1]

Duty Edit

The Ishi were a Juhin-Kenzoku, a quartermaster or forgery family, of the Crab Clan. After the Battle of White Stag they invented the tetsu-dou style of armor. [1] It was a heavy iron armor worn almost exclusively by the Crab. Its purpose was to withstand an oni attack. [2]
