Tamori family


Clan: Dragon Clan 
Founded: 1150 
Daimyo: Tamori Wataru

The Tamori family were founded after the Agasha family left the Dragon. There was a small group that still remained, led by Agasha Tamori. [1]

History Edit

Agasha Defection Edit

For almost twenty years, each clan had a family named Agasha, but that changed at the end of the War of Spirits when Emperor Toturi I renamed the Dragon Agasha as the Tamori family in 1150. This was a concession into which the Emperor was forced as a part of his truce with Hantei XVI. [2] Toturi followed the advise of the Scorpion Clan Champion Bayushi Yojiro. The shugenja of the Wolf Legion were immediately granted fealty in the fledgling family. [3] The largely-defeated Hantei took great joy in having the Dragon rename one of their families after a man they considered to be a traitor. [4] The new family daimyo Tamori Shaitung infused her whole family with a strict sense of honor, and Bushido, particularly the tenets of Duty and Honesty, was a final principle of Tamori ideology. [5]

Destruction of the Agasha Shrines Edit

Shortly after the Wrath of the Kami erupted, the Tamori Daimyo Tamori Shaitung invited the Phoenix Agasha to retrieve any important artifacts from the shrines they wished to keep. The Dragon-Phoenix War and the active volcano prevented them from even getting near the sites. When the Tamori returned to their lands just after the volcano subsided, they destroyed the shrines without exception. The hostility between the two families might never draw to a close. [6]

Overseeing the Spider Edit

After the Spider Clan was elevated as a Great Clan in 1173, the Tamori monitored the Taint of the corrupted members of the Spider. [7]
