Chronicle of Ages
The Chuda family began as an honorable minor clan known as the [[Snake Clan}}. However, in the beginning of the 5th century a Shuten-Doji sought to possess and corrupt the clan. The Phoenix discovering this wiped the clan out.
In the middle of the 12th Century the Chuda family claimed to have been resurrected in the City of the Lost. These ambitious Shugenja claimed to be the descendants and spiritual successors for the existing minor clan. They are now a family of powerful maho-tsukai whose ever switching allegiances make them mistrusted even among fellow Spider.
