The Hidari Wars
Within the eastern portion of Zobutara the Saku clan resides. Unfortunately the Saku clan recently announced their loyalty was to the Okami clan, and the Yami clan took that as a declaration of war. The fighting with the Yami clan has been intense, but luckily the large castles of the Saku clan have proven to be an extreme nuisance to take even for the various ninja groups of the Yami clan. So far the fighting is at a stalemate, but if the Saku clan can hold out long enough for the Okami clan to finish off the Tora clan, and the Yama clan then they will be reinforced by their leading clan.
The current leader of the Saku clan is Saku Sagami. Sagami has grown old since his reign over the clan has been one of the few that has seen life before the Hidari Wars. Currently Sagami is in his sixties, and shows resilience in against his aging body. He has four sons, and five daughters. He is currently widowed and grows bitter in his old age. Bitter that he cannot find an end to this seemingly endless conflict that rages across the land. Bitter that he has experienced a time of peace unlike many of the warriors in the modern day. And finally he is bitter that he couldn’t find peace before the unfortunate passing of his wife who died of illness several years ago.
Many great castles were made by the Saku clan, and are large and well fortified enough to fend off skilled shinobi.
