Clan Tora

The Tora are, much like their totem the Tiger, a proud and haughty people, always ready to pounce, taking the initiative or advantage. The Tora find it hard to understand or trust anyone who won’t fight for their ideas or express their emotions with passion. Honor is of extraordinary importance to the Tora, and they pursue it and defend it with the utmost of their fiery passion.

The Tora have applied their fiercely competitive nature to the arena of the mind in the same way that they compete physically. Combined with their mountainous homeland, this inquisitive competitiveness has shaped the Tora into the preeminent smiths and alchemists in all Kagejima. Tora weapons are finely forged and their understanding of alchemical reactions is unsurpassed, leading them to make, not only the first firearms on the island, but the finest as well.

Travelling inland from the east, is a great expanse of fields and lush forest that gives way to the foothills of the great Getsu-san, a mighty mountain that breaks the skyline from anywhere on Kagejima, named for the cool snow-capped luster of its white peak – bright in the day, and reflective at night in the moons glow.

 The countryside east of the mountains is dotted with doughty villages spread amongst the edges of the great forests to the north and the broken lands to the south. The foothills yield great rewards to the industrious people there, both in mineral wealth, the black blood of the earth, and access to chemical ingredients in the manufacturing of powerful compounds used in making raw materials that fill the forges of the various clans. These are the lands of the Tora clan.

The Tora are, much like their totem the Tiger, a proud and haughty people, always ready to pounce, taking the initiative or advantage. Taunting and one upmanship are favorite pastimes among Tora youths. Challenges to a foot race or other contest of strength or agility are never far from coming. Not being able to give as good as you get, or not having a thick enough skin to laugh off the constant flamboyant bragging and bravado is a sign of poor sportsmanship to the Tora. The Tora find it hard to understand or trust anyone who won’t fight for their ideas or express their emotions with passion. Honor is of extraordinary importance to the Tora, and they pursue it and defend it with the utmost of their fiery passion.

I am not touched or blessed by the White Tiger. I am the White Tiger!

Byakko truly believes himself the incarnation of the White Tiger. Byakko might be mad. Then again, he might be right.

 

Aspiring leaders and skilled fighters within the clan are called upon to lead their own team of ninja at the Moonlight Tournament as Chunin. This is an incredible honor, and the trials to come will not only test a Chunin’s leadership and skills, but their spirit as well.

Kaiken are the backbone of the clans. To be a Kaiken is not to be relegated to a basic or low role. Kaiken are masters of the art of stealth, the sword, the shuriken. As their experience grows they learn to tap the elemental magic of Kagejima, unlocking potent abilities to rival even the great Heroes.

Yajiri specialize in attacking from afar. Their black shafted arrows renowned for striking with deadly accuracy. While the bow is utilized throughout all the clans, many have developed their own unique forms of ranged warfare. No matter the form it takes, a yajiri’s value to their clan cannot be underestimated.

Kunoichi are specialized female fighters and scouts for the clans, and put particular emphasis on speed and agility.  Kunoichi focus on key mission objectives such as scouting targets and carrying vital missives. When combat is unavoidable, they eliminate targets with a hail of deadly shuriken or kunai.

All clans possess the mystics known as Madoushi. In some clans they are revered as sages, alchemists and healers. Other clans regard them as witches and tolerate them with barely concealed mistrust and fear. Whether they are revered or reviled, all Madoushi are able to harness the powers native to the lands of their clan.
