The Tsuruchi Magistrates are a group of highly skilled investigators from the Tsuruchi family.
The Tsuruchi family was created in 1109, and before they joined the Mantis they were the Minor Clan known as the Wasp. They were skilled archers and vassals of Tsuruchi, who had gained Minor Clan status through a unique arrangement with the Emerald Champion Doji Satsume. Satsume, a Crane with decidedly anti-Scorpion leanings, happily advocated Tsuruchi's case against the Scorpion army that was threatening to destroy his home of Kyuden Ashinagabachi. He persuaded the Emperor to recognize their status as a Minor Clan on the condition that they would serve the Emerald Champion as magistrates. 
As magistrates the Wasp earned a reputation as peerless archers and ruthless bounty hunters, chasing criminals and fugitives across the Empire. For the most part, these bounty hunters relied on their reputation, archery skills, and experience with tracking. As time progressed, the Wasp began to develop more specific means of tracking their prey, often working alongside Doji and Kitsuki magistrates. Some went so far as to eschew studying the bow to instead focus on developing reliable, consistent techniques of detection that could better match those of their colleagues in other Clans. 
Formal School Edit
Since the Wasp were absorbed by the Mantis, the Tsuruchi family has devoted more resources to developing these abilities into a formal School, complete with a new dojo constructed alongside Kyuden Ashinagabachi. The Tsuruchi are now the principal magistrates for the clan, and still maintain their decades-old arrangement with the Emerald Champion.
