Legend of the Five Rings Aftermath
The Tsuruchi are a strange family, one born of unique circumstances that are unlikely to be repeated ever again. The family began as the result of one man’s campaign of vengeance against the Lion and Scorpion, two clans that betrayed his parents. Supported by an Emerald Champion who had his own reasons for despising the two clans, Tsuruchi took back his parents’ home from their betrayers and created the Wasp Clan, samurai who cast aside bushido and daisho for their own code of honor and mastery of the bow.
The Tsuruchi are a particularly athletic family, accustomed to rough mountain living and the vigorous tracking of criminals through the Empire. Speed is highly valued, and traditional tsuruchi training places great emphasis on feats of dexterity. The Tsuruchi range from average to slightly above average height. Many Tsuruchi wear yellow and black striped armbands.
