The Hidari Wars
The Yama clan makes their living at the very Northern tip of Zobutara. Currently the specialize in gorilla warfare. While their population can’t support a massive Samurai army the Yama clan believes in having a small force of mountain bandits that help thin down the enemy numbers so that when the battle does occur the numbers are much more even, and the enemy army is often times exhausted from having to look out for ambushes. There are many forests, and mountains that make this a great tactic to have in the norther regions of Zobutara, and it’s because of this good thinking that the Yama clan was one of the few clans to survive in the northern portion of the continent.
The current leader of the Yama clan is Yama Touzoku. Touzoku is renown for working with the Yakuza, and getting assistance from the local bandits for their share of whatever the enemy soldiers are carrying on them. While he reluctantly had to agree to a treaty with Tora Kenshin Touzoku is holding out quite well against the Okami clan. It is unsure as to where his loyalty lies, but many speculate that Touzoku will probably soon declare that he wants to become Shogun instead of serving under one of the royal families. One thing is for certain, and that is that Touzoku’s loyalties are NOT with the Okami clan.
Mountain bandits aren’t hunted in Yama lands like they normally are everywhere else so they are often seen walking the streets, and even bullying the populace.
