The Moshi Shugenja school was founded at the beginning of the Centipede Clan, and in the light of Lady Sun's influence.

Philosophies Edit

Introspective and serene, it straddled the opposing philosophies of peace and the nature of elemental fire. The Moshi priestesses were looked upon with respect by their Isawa cousins for the ability to master the awesome power of fire yet remain wise and peaceful. [1]

Tradition Edit

Centipede shugenja tended to focus almost exclusively on Fire and Air spells, related to speed and long-range magic. [2] They accepted Falcon female shugenja to be trained there. [3] They revered the power of the Sun above all else, but their magic shifted to encompass the power of the storm rather than the fury of the sun after the death of Lady Sun[4]

Known Techniques Edit

The Moshi school tought its students the tenets that were inherent in its founding, empathy, harmony, and resolve. [5]

Absorption into the Mantis Edit

Though the first Sun has perished and the Centipede Clan has long ago vanished into memory, the Moshi School continues to teach its students the tenets that were inherent in its founding – empathy, harmony, and resolve. Though some look upon the shugenja of the Moshi and wonder how they can remain as they are in the midst of the tempestuous Mantis Clan, it is a situation the wisdom of the Centipede Clan learned long ago how to cope with. Students of the school are taught their lessons both in the classroom and then among the swirling storms that surround the Islands of Silk and Spice. At all times, the shugenja learn to remain calm and centered during the most chaotic conditions through both mental discipline and communion with the storm. Though their bushi cousins in the Mantis Clan learn to deal with harsh weather, students of the Moshi School learn to revel in it. [1]

Toturi Tsudao Edit

The Moshi believed Toturi Tsudao was the reincarnation of the Sun Goddess, and considered the Battle of Dawn's Valley, a battle which was won with Tsudao's summoning of the sun in the dead of night, undisputable proof of their claim. [citation needed]
