Shiro Daidoji

Shiro Daidoji

The Son of the Crane Castle (CN4) was the home of the Daidoji family. While not perhaps as culturally sophisticated as the Kakita or Doji the Daidoji were the strong arm of the Crane Clan. The disdain for the Daidoji's traditional military solutions were reconsidered in recent times, and they began to enjoy the same influence as the other Crane families within the Crane Clan. [1] [2]

Founding Edit

Iron Fortress of the Daidoji

Iron Fortress of the Daidoji

Shiro Daidoji began as the private estate of Doji Hayaku, founder of the Daidoji family. Upon his return from the Shadowlands, Hayaku was convinced that the Crab could not contain the minions of Fu Leng forever, so he transformed his home into a defensive fortress. [3]

Dojo Edit

Shiro Daidoji was the home of the Iron Crane Dojo, and was surrounded by military training grounds. [4] It was situated between Kosaten Shiro and Kyuden Doji, in the Eastern part of the central Crane lands in the Hayaku province. [5]

Library Edit

The Daidoji Library was one of the most detailed and extensive libraries of military writing in the Empire. It collected information regarding the military tactics used by the Great Clans. [6]

Destruction and Rebuilding Edit

Rebuilt Shiro Daidoji

During the War Against Shadow, Shiro Daidoji was destroyed by Goju saboteurs while the main strength of the family was away at war. [7] When the Crane armies returned from the Battle of Oblivion's Gate they found their lands flooded and the castle destroyed. [8] The castle was rebuilt to its prime. [9]
