The Kyuden Otomo Dojo was the dojo of the Otomo family, where the Otomo Seiyaku were trained. Since the first Hantei built his great city the Otomo protected the Emperor by subverting conspiracies among the clans. By keeping the clans in opposition against each other they ensured that there was always someone who desperately needed the Emperor to keep the peace. Only twice in the history had the Otomo failed this duty. Once the group known as the Gozoku seized control of the Emperor, and second when the Scorpion Clan Champion Bayushi Shoju killed Hantei XXXVIII. [1]

Relocation Edit

After the Fall of Otosan Uchi a new Kyuden Otomo was rebuilt within the Kazenmuketsu province. To be located far away from the new Imperial City, Toshi Ranbo, allowed to train the students away from the scrutiny of others. [2]

Training Edit

There are very few warriors produced in the Otomo line, as children were taught from an early age to observe and manipulate those around them. There were few in the Empire who could gain as much information as an Otomo by casual observation. Even fewer could use the information to such ruthless and effective ends. [1]
