The Hidari Wars
The Mangetsu clan resides in the Western portion of Shoshikaru. Currently the ones who have specialized the most in dealing with the Yabanjin Trade they have obtained many different types of weapons. Mostly matchlock rifles, but several other strange devices from foreign lands. The Mangetsu are by far the most technologically advanced clan within the Mizari Islands with the Kasei being the only ones that are following closely behind them. Currently the Mangetsu are at war with the Jishin clan. The Kasei are also at war with the Jishin clan, but currently their focus is more toward defense from the Kenja rebels.
The Mangetsu’s leader is Mangetsu Ishida. Ishida’s loyalty sways between the Yami clan, and the Hidari clan. The reason why he doesn’t choose a side is because he has only really declared that he doesn’t like the Okami clan for its barbaric methods of warfare. As barbaric as the Okami seem their method of warfare has so far given them much success. The future of the Mangetsu clan is dependent upon whether or not Ishida can claim Shoshikaru from the Jishin clan, and the Kenja rebels to then wage war on the Okami clan by landing invasion forces upon the shores of Northern Zobutara that are all wielding the newest of guns to come into the Mizari Islands.
Matchlock guns have proven to be one of the deadliest weapons for fighting other clans in the Mizari Islands. The only concern is their tendency to malfunction, or accidentally fire.
