The Lion Clan is a Great Clan led by Clan Champion Akodo Arasou alongside his beloved Matsu Tsuko and with the help of a new general, Akodo Toturi.

Description[edit | edit source]

Sitting opposed to the Crane's political skills is the pure military might of the Lion Clan. Every samurai who lives in Rokugan measures courage, honor, and duty against the standard set by the Lion Clan. With the largest standing army in Rokugan, the Lion have earned their place as the Right Hand of the Emperor. Above all, the Lion Clan lives, breathes, and dies for the Emperor and Rokugan. Should the interests of the Emperor and the welfare of the Empire diverge, toward what deadly paths or dishonorable fates would the Lion march?

The Lion are a proud, aggressive, and violent clan that leverages its strong military skill to win conflicts. Lion decks frequently aim to swarm the play area with characters, strengthening their presence through numbers. However, Lion characters with political skill are harder to come by, so it's important to have some extra fate to keep your few courtiers and politicians in play.[1]
