Naoko family
Patron family: Utaku family
Clan: Unicorn Clan
Founded: (c. 152)
Daimyo: Otaku Naoko

The Naoko family was a vassal family of the Utaku family of the Unicorn Clan.

Founding Edit

They were founded by Otaku Naoko, the grand-daughter of Otaku Shiko. Shiko gave Naoko the family when she was impressed with Naoko's attitude about keeping both the ways of the Ki-Rin Clan and of the Ujik-hai after the Ki-Rin left the Ujik-hai. Several other Otaku who felt the same as Naoko joined her family. They lived with great respect for gaijin ways and Bushido, and the other Unicorn samurai treat them no differently than anyone else. [1]

Duty Edit

The Naoko kept alive the Ujik-hai ways among the Unicorn Clan, proud of their barbarian heritage. After the Return of the Ki-Rin, the family took residence at Shiro Naoko. [2]

Tradition Edit

Women from other families who felt a strong affiliation with the Ujik-hai ways were allowed to take the Naoko name with the Naoko Daimyo's permission. All Naoko took exotic gaijin first names, and that was often the only way to tell a Naoko from any other Utaku. [1]

Shinjo's Return Edit

Many gaijin who came from the Burning Sands folowing the Kami Shinjo to aid the Unicorn in the Moto War swore fealty to the Naoko family once they settled down in Rokugan. [1]
