Mantis Clan

Mantis Kobune port
The Mantis Clan is the youngest Great Clan having only been recognised as Great Clan since the Second Day of Thunder in 1128. Prior to that, it was the oldest Minor Clan.

The primary holdings of the Mantis are the lands that belonged to the Yoritomo family on the Islands of Spice and Silk.  The nature of these lands meant that the Yoritomo family and by extension, all of the Mantis Clan are expert seamen; the Mantis have the largest navy in Rokugan.

Since gaining Great Clan status, the Mantis have absorbed the Wasp and Centipede Clans who have formed the Tsuruchi and Moshi families respectively.
