Yoritomo Hokare was a merchant of the Mantis Clan at Kalani's Landing who sometimes got into mercantile tussles with both Daidoji Iyashi and Yasuki Kappako. [1] Kappako was reputed as the more skillful, but Iyashi was by far the richer, and was rumored to have sponsors in the Second City. [2]

Colonial Merchant Edit

Hokare was a pudgy and smiling man in his thirties with thinning hair. His eyes had a cool measuring quality that never changed. Hokare was fond of rolling a pair of koku in his hand. He traded primarily lumber and seafood, and his specialty was importing soy sauce. [3]

Jade Mine Edit

A prospector working for Yasuki Kappako discovered an Ivory Kingdoms jade mine in the jungle-shrouded hills outside Kalani's Landing. The news of its discovery leaked, and Daidoji Iyashi set out to sabotage Kappako and claimed control of the mine. He hired a group of ronin to pose as bandits and terrorized anyone working at the mine. The local magistrate Miya Ichiko, a protegee of one of Chonitsu's allies, refused to offer Kappako any assistance with the bandit problem. Hokare joined efforts with Kappako arranging assistance from outside the area to share the profits of the jade mine. He met a group of samurai to deal with the bandits who had attacked Kappako's workers. [4]
