Chronicle of Ages
The followers of the Lady Doji are known as the Left Hand of the Emperor and pursue excellence in all things. This pursuit of excellence has garnered a reputation throughout Rokugan for their skilled duelists and artisans. Their coastal lands are among the most fertile lands producing more rice then is needed allowing them to trade the excess to the other clans without much worry about providing for their own people even in the event of natural disaster. This affords them a powerful economic tool that combined with their skilled courtiers ensures the clan is always in a powerful political position.
The wealth from their politics and trade allows the Crane to focus on more artistic pursuits. Having been inspired by Lady Doji’s own fondness for beauty and culture, the clan seeks to spread these loves to the rest of the Empire. This refinement and adherence to bushido make the Crane some of the most respected and honorable samurai in the Empire. This in turn causes them to look with disfavor at those that are more brutish or uncultured.
