Iuchi Scouts were trained in the Iuchi Scout Academy. They were regarded as the true heirs of the Ki-Rin Clan, adventurous and forward-looking spirits who journeyed for centuries through previously unknown and uncharted regions of the world. The Scouts formed small highly specialized reserve squadrons in the Khol legions. [1]

Founding Edit

The Iuchi Scouts were the only Iuchi military unit to exist outside the Baraunghar. Initially formed out of necessity during the Unicorn Clan's journey through the Shadowlands, they originally counted many shugenja among their ranks. They were people capable of leading through all sorts of terrain. [2]

New Role Edit

Hundreds of years later, Iuchi Scouts had very little in common with the trailblazing shugenja who founded them, as they were all bushi. They developed an intuitive understanding of the land around them that allowed them to move through rough terrain easily. From very early on, the Scouts learned to wield all sorts of weapons, rokugani or gaijin alike, earning their place among the Khol, skilled in stealthy combat tactics. [3] Their role was to scout out the surrounding terrain as well as reconnoiter and harass the enemy. [4]
