Prefecture of Ryu

Satou Iiju

£7.95

A ward is a member of a noble clan who has been taken in by another clan to be raised for a time. The practice varies, with it sometimes being undertaken voluntarily - to help prospective heirs learn the customs of other clans as part of their education. It can also be involuntarily, with the "ward" actually being a "hostage" for his or her clan's good behaviour or until a ransom is paid. Sometimes, as part of marriage alliances, one of the betrothed is taken as a ward so he or she can get to know his or her future spouse.

Price: £7.95

Takashi Bachiko

Atsushi & Shinobu

£8.95

The ronin of the Shiho remain a thorn in the Takashis' side. Without a fixed army the Takashi have found it almost impossible to hunt down and destroy the remaining rebels in the field, these cowed dogs hide in the woods and hills of the Dragon's lands. The solution has been somewhat answered in the excellent tracking and scouting skills of Atsushi, a former Satou family retainer now sworn to the Takashi. With his faithful hound Shinobu, rooting out those hiding in the dark, eager to savage any at the utterance of a single word from his master.

Satou Kioshi

£7.95

All the great clans draw on the lesser clans for support, either on the battlefield, in court or commercially, the Takashi are no different and for many generations the Makoto have enjoyed the protection of the Takashi in exchange for their wisdom and consort. The Makoto family are renowned for their wealth of knowledge and love of the sciences. Kioshi has long been the voice of reason in the court of Ryu, his quiet words hold more weight than Minimoto steel to the heads of the Takashi.

Shuichi

£7.95

The Takashi clan have long followed the teachings of Michi and unlike some of the other clans in the Jwar Isles strictly adhere to its teachings when raising the next generation. The Michi priests already offer the support of their military arm in the form of the Seishin na Geoi, but are not opposed to accompanying any believes on their paths, whether that leads them to battle or otherwise. Through years of dedication the Michi priests are able to evoke the protective powers of their ancestors, dousing flame, neutralising poisons or the intrusive commands of others.

Takashi Akio

£7.95

Takashi Akio is a legendary sensei of the finest sword Gakko in Ryu. The majority of the Takashi line has learning under his excellent tutelage. Now in the twilight years of his life and with the need for all able body warriors to answer Hida’s call, Akio has put down his Bokken and stepped forward to offer his life in service to his lord. Still a fearsome warrior but the real advantage he offers any fighting force is his expert knowledge of combat.

Isamu

£7.95

A veteran of the Dragon wars, tales of his courage at the battle of Hendai are still told today in the streets of Tsumaga. He had led the life of a fisherman after the first war until the call from Ryu came, summoning all goshi back to service in this new time of strife. From an early age Isamu exuded an air of authority and a calm head in the heat of the moment. It came as no surprise that he was raised to the rank of Gunso quickly during his first term of service to the Takashi clan, a position he quickly settled into.

Guardsman of Ryu

£7.95

Whether with yari or the fabled Arquebus the ashigaru stationed at Ryu are staunchly loyal to the Takashi and will defend their clan to the death. They are trained and drilled relentlessly to ensure that in battle they act and react instinctively, unflinching as they wait for orders from their Gunso or samurai commanders. The Arquebusiers see it as such an honor to be picked into the regiment that it is said that they even take them on their final journey to Hantaisoku.

Price: £7.95

Takashi Katsumoto

£7.95

Sensei at the Koryu school in Ryu, Katsumoto has for many years passed his exceptional tactical skills on to the sons of the Takashi clan. It is recognised that much of the military success in the Dragon wars was down to Katsumoto’s cunning. Katsumoto spent much of his formative years in the lands of the West, studying in the further flung schools, tirelessly researching the local teachings of warfare, always hungry for knowledge. On the battlefield Katsumoto is the personification of calm, every move is considered, every order weighed.
