Legend of the Five Rings Aftermath
In a clan famous for its non-traditional practices, the Mirumoto are the anchor that connects the others to the rich culture and traditions of Rokugan. This might seem an impossible task given the oddities of other Dragon families, but for all the attention the others draw to themselves, the Mirumoto comprise nearly three-quarters of the Dragon Clan’s numbers.
The Mirumoto family’s history is one of unquestioning service and obedience to a master they could not understand. The warrior Mirumoto was an incredibly gifted warrior who never hesitated to follow even the most enigmatic command of his master Togashi. Before he left to accompany Shinsei into the Shadowlands, Mirumoto passed on his unique fighting style to his son Hojatsu, who in turn taught it to hundreds of promising Mirumoto warriors before he died in a duel with kakita. The daisho style, wielding both blades at once, has remained unique to the Dragon for over a thousand years. The Dragon were belittled by many because of their enigmatic nature and the rarity of their appearances in the Empire at large, but there were few who did not respect the military power of the Mirumoto armies.
In a clan of tattooed men, martial shugenja, and contemplative investigators, the Mirumoto establish the base from which other families deviate. They tend to be well-muscled, but not overly so. Like other Dragon families, they favor elaborate tattoos, but are more likely to keep them concealed than go bare-chested. The Mirumoto, known for their calm outward appearance and straight-forward nature, can often spring into a ferocious rage if their honor is called into question. They are yet another living contrast, another oddity among the enigmatic Dragon Clan.
