Legend of the Five Rings Aftermath
Ever stoic and unshakable, the Akodo are the descendants of Akodo One-Eye and his sworn followers. There was no greater proponent of bushido in the early Empire than Akodo, and his courage and conviction were soon adopted by the family that bore his name.
The Akodo family ruled the Lion Clan for a thousand years, with only rare exceptions. They were widely regarded as the finest tacticians in the Empire, and the oft-repeated adage that no Akodo-trained general had ever been defeated on the battlefield is widely believed, even if apocryphal.
The Akodo are among the most traditional bushi families. They train regularly and are extremely fit and toned in appearance. They favor shaved heads with topknots and traditional dress, with a quiet demeanor that suggests tranquility and serenity. More so than any other Lion, they embody the disciplined appearance for which their clan is so well known.
