East Wind

Ronin of the East Wind
The East Wind are a ronin Otokodate or brotherhood that lives in Higashi Chushin.  Since the Fall of Otosan Uchi, the Tortoise Clan has moved most of its assets to Kita Chushin and hired the East Wind to protect its remaining assets and keep an eye on the activities of the Mantis Clan which controls the port.

As a result, the East Wind are the de facto authorities in most of the village, and its head, Yoichi, is the de facto magistrate.  He and his men can regularly be found patrolling the streets of the village on horseback or enjoying Kincho's tea at the House of the Green Koi.
