Bronze Hawk Clan

The Bronze Hawk Clan was one of the many missing and presumed fallen clans that helped to make up Fey-Sirona Society. They originated from the floating city of Menyel-Iuchi which fell during the Age of the Void. They count among the last survivors of the Champion Race of Air after their service to the mysterious Lady of Law. In recent times they have been stationed in the Morigena Kingdom in service to Duke Rana Dae, but have been released from this service to return to and serve the High King. The clan is divided into ten families, units that work together each family numbers approximately ten members, who serve the Daimyo with dedication, loyalty and respect.

The Bronze Hawk Clan are more inventive Samurai and make for inspired Shugenja, due to their unique perspectives and way of dealing with issues that confront them. They have dedicated themselves to combatting the Void, and seek to do this by helping those that wish it find redemption and assisting the Elemental Union forces where they can. They aim to help others avoid falling prey to the void and remaining free of its influence.

Clan Advantage: The members of this clan are resistant to the voids effects. As such the void cannot control them or learn what they know until the clan member has 3 Void Points.

Clan Disadvantage: The Bronze Hawk clan cannot draw power from the void and spending a Void Point grants them no benefit. While a member has a Void Point they may not cast magic nor can they increase their level in any skills or take new skills. The cost of buying off Void Point for this clan is doubled, costing 20xp or 2 skill points.

Families

The Bronze Hawk Clan consists of 10 Families each with up to 10 members in each. These families each have a different role within the clan:

The Chainbearers: This family consist of elemental magic users and shugenja. They work as a group using air manipulation to gather air concentrate it and then pass it on to the next one in the chain. When they are all together they are capable of great feats of air magic as by the time it reaches the 10th member they have gathered a huge amount of concentrated air for manipulating.

There are currently 9 members in this family.

Family Benefit: The member gains +1 Mana for each family member present.

The Bound: A family of Samurai that take magical staffs as their Samurai weapons. They act as rearguard, should the need be great enough their job is to hold off a large force to allow others to escape, if they die while undertaking this duty their weapon will break as per samurai and thus the staffs will explode, as a final means of holding off the void for as long as possible.

Family Benefit: Staffs bound to the Samurai count as being 1 level higher in their hands.

As a result of the attack on Etoa A’Ahn in 914AoF , their bravery means that this particular family is sadly no longer around.
