Noroko family 
Patron family: Kitsu family 
Clan: Lion Clan 
Founded: 1133 
Daimyo: Unknown

The Noroko family was founded with ronin shugenja who had left the Lion Clan to show their disdain with Kitsu Okura's corruption. [1]

Kitsu Corruption Edit

During the War Against Shadow Kitsu Motso led a large portion of Lion forces to assist the Crab to defend the Kaiu Wall, with a group of Kitsu Shugenja among them as healers. The shugenja returned to their lands to see horrified that the same monsters of the Shadowlands were allowed to roam free in the Kitsu lands under the protection of the Kitsu Daimyo Kitsu Okura. Many of the priests committed seppuku, while the rest left their family becoming ronin. [1]

Founding Edit

In 1133 after the Battle of Oblivion's Gate the Emperor Toturi I granted these shugenja their own family, as vassals of the Kitsu. Kitsu Ryo became their first daimyo and the Temple of the Jade Lion just south of Bishamon Seido became the family ancestral home. [1]

Duty Edit

The Noroko family served the Kitsu and the Jade Champion against the threat of the Taint. They served Kuni Utagu as an elite cadre of Jade Magistrates, learning the ways ot both the Asako Inquisitors and the Kuni Witch Hunters. The Noroko Dojo was established in the shadow of Kyuden Hida to learn how to fight the Shadowlands. Noroko shugenja might choose to learn from the Kuni Shugenja school instead ot the Kitsu shugenja school. [1]
