The Lotus Sect was one of the ten Kolat sects.

Duty Edit

Its purpose was to assassinate the enemies of the Kolat. This sect worked closely with the Silken Sect, acting upon information obtained by them. [1] Master Lotus have three couriers at each temple ready to run missives with Master Silk. [2]

Strongholds Edit

The Lotus assassins lived in luxurious monasteries, located in extremely remote places. The idea was to cut the members from any human contact apart from their brethren, so as to avoid them being being hampered by emotions while doing their jobs. So far, this had been as effective philosophy. [1]

Master Lotus contacted its agents directly; the idea was that anyone who had managed to come to one of the monasteries without getting killed was one of their own. [1]

Debate Edit

After the crippling attacks of the Lying Darkness and Shinjo's purge the kolat were disorganized, and many critical agents were isolated. The organization sought a new focus, torn between their desire to remake the Celestial Order and the more pragmatic desire to ensure the organizations existence. The Master Tiger, Cloud, Lotus, and Dream Masters were traditional Kolat, with Master Cloud the most vocal member of the group. The Steel, Coin, Silk, and Chrysanthemum Masters all adhered to the modern philosophy. Neither Master Jade nor Master Roc seemed interested in this ongoing debate. [3] The latter philosophy was championed by Morito and it seemed to be winning out. [4]
