People

Kanbe was a ronin mercenary who joined the Mantis Clan. He became Yoritomo Kanbe when the Yoritomo family was founded.

Ronin Edit

Kanbe was a ronin mercenary who joined the Mantis Clan. His skill in combat and his leadership abilities, caused his leaders to overlook some of his philosophical shortcomings. [1]

Mantis Clan Edit

March of the Alliance Edit

Kanbe fought in both the invasion of Scorpion lands and Phoenix lands. [2]

Lady Moon Edit

Kanbe was one of the samurai chosen as escort by Hitomi when she was to ascend as the new Moon in 1132. During an oni ambush the only samurai that survived the surprise attack were Kanbe and Shiba Odoshi, but their mutual hatred of each other led them to fight against themselves for the honor of serving as Hitomi's second. The oni seized the moment and killed them in dishonor.

The two went immediately to Toshigoku, the Realm of Slaughter. In that blighted Realm, Odoshi found the Mantis again. Both could remember their failure to Rokugan, and determined to make amends, Odoshi committed seppuku, with Kanbe as his second. [3]
