Yoritomo. The Shogun. Son of Storms. The man who raised the Mantis Clan to Great Clan by his own hands and will, rather than birth.
Yoritomo is a force to be reckoned with on many levels. A fearsome warrior, wielding twin kama rather than a traditional katana, a master tactician and ruthless negotiator, it is only a fool who underestimates the master of the Mantis.
Yoritomo reluctantly took on the role of Shogun when Toturi refused the Throne. Though many pressed Yoritomo to declare himself Emperor, he would not. His own honour would not allow him to take a position he felt he had not earned by right.
It has been eight years since that day. And Yoritomo has grown accustomed to the title and position. The Mantis lord finds some small satisfaction in the other Clans bowing to him, but worries that this flaw may not only be dishonourable but also a sign of corruption.
Yoritomo is currently concerned with the shortage of jade faced by his forces. He has dispatched several of his best crews to the Ivory Kingdoms to bargain for more jade but needs more immediately to supply forces on the mainland. As a result he has turned his attention to raiding old mines to find any supplies he can.
