Rise of the Obsidian Throne
The Crab Clan
The Crab Clan serve as the Defenders of the Empire. They spent their lives upon the Carpenter Wall, standing vigilant along the southwestern border of Rokugan to defend against the next attack from the Shadowlands. That was before the Walls fall. The Crab now fight upon three fronts in the war against the Shadowlands. The Crab of Toturi’s Army fight where the army treads, inspiring others with their courage and strength of resolve. The Crab of the Unbroken Crab fight in the South and refuse to abandon the lands to the Legion of Jigoku. The Crab of the Kolat have seamlessly slipped into the folds of the Obsidian Empire, surfacing rarely, but often with tides of information and resources as they subtly undo the Empire form within. The Crab value this duty above everything, even honor. They might be gruff, unkempt and downright rude at times, but no one questions their strength or courage.
*Since the Summit of Resistance the Crab Clan has seen an unparalleled amount of unity with the Crab of Toturi’s Army and the Unbroken Crab. The Crab of both sides have been rotating places, giving the Unbroken Crab time to catch their breath and allow fresh reserves into the fight against the Oni. When Hida Yakamo disappears into the lands of the Dragon, Hida O-Ushi takes command of the Crab from the battle fields of the Southern Crab Lands. She appoints Kuni Osako as the head of the Toturi’s Army until her brother returns.
