Maisuna family 
Patron family: Kaiu family 
Clan: Crab Clan 
Founded: c. 716 
Daimyo: Unknown

The Maisuna family was a vassal family in service to the Kaiu family of the Crab Clan. They valued strength highly. [1]

Founding Edit

After the Battle of the Cresting Wave the Kaiu Daimyo gathered the leaders of the work crews that had gathered the stone to construct the Kaiu Wall. They were tasked to mine stone from the Twilight Mountains to repair and expand the Great Carpenter Wall, his headquarters located in a small keep near the northern edge of the Kaiu provinces. The descendants of the original stonemasons were eventually awarded a vassal name for their efforts. They used their abilities and the raw material from the mountains to build a castle, Maisuna Shiro, and connected it to the original keep. [2]

Duty Edit

In addition to their original duty, the Maisuna samurai became sculptors and artists, as they began to find a recreational use for the stones they gathered. Their lands were beautiful and decorated with a variety of exquisite statues. [1] They helped in the construction of the Khol Wall around 1165. [3]
