Shinjo Karuma was the Unicorn Clan Champion and member of the Kolat conspiracy.

Kolat Edit

Karuma, daugther of Shinjo Kochamon, was brought into the Kolat conspiracy. [1] When her mother died, her son Shinjo Ritsuga took command of the Clan. [2]

Unicorn Clan Champion Edit

When Karuma became the Unicorn Clan Champion a generation after the Return of the Ki-Rin, the Kolat were firmly in control of the Unicorn Clan. [1] She was a shrewd and businesslike Champion who believed that the key to ensuring the clan's place in the Empire was to purchase it. [3]

Politics Edit

Karuma used lavish gifts and invited countless guests to stay in complete luxury in her court, ensuring that there would be no shortage of others eager to visit the Unicorn lands. [3] This, in turn, let the Kolat spread its influence. [1]

Daikoku Seido Edit

Daikoku Seido was constructed on order of Shinjo Karuma several decades after the clan's return. After the first major treaty brought about by this "economic diplomacy", Karuma ordered the construction of a splendid temple to Daikoku, the Fortune of Wealth. [3]
