Before the Five Rings
Tribe of Kohaku
The player character’s home tribe. The tribe is named for the legendary warrior Kohaku, who slew the great demon Ashima and led his people to the safety of the Eastern Plains. The chieftain, Isamu, is the great-great-grandson of Kohaku and well-respected by the tribe. He has maintained the tribe’s semi-nomadic nature and despite being a fierce and powerful warrior, tries to avoid conflict with the other tribes.
The Tribe of Kohaku was all but wiped out by the Tribe of Noriaki in a surprise attack shortly after the Festival of the First Hunt.
