The Hidari Wars
The Sora clan are masters of hiding their armies so that they may ambush incoming armies that encroach upon their lands. Their leader, Sora Shisui, is one of the most prominent ninja of the lands. It is said that he can use illusions to his advantage to slay any who may think to fight him. It is said that he has made a thousand men go insane after they ignorantly tried to attack him, and he bent their psyche to his will.
The Sora clan believes that it should be the Yami clan that rules over the realm. Unfortunately the clan that lives adjacent to them on Choshiro Island, The Suishou clan, believes that it should be the Hidari clan that rules over The Mizari Islands. Once Shisui sent a messenger to the Suishou clan to join together with him in taking over Tinimaru Island for the Yami clan it didn’t take long before the Suishou clan declared war on the Sora clan. From there the Suishou clan has used its much superior forces to send a great number of assaults through the vast woodlands of Choshiro Island. From there the Sora clan has always had an assault force waiting for them, in the shadows. It is because of this that a seven year long stale mate has occurred within Choshiro Island, and both sides haven’t relented one bit in believing that their lord is the rightful one for The Mizari Islands.
The Sora clan believes that even if a Samurai is known as the worst fighter in the world he still has a chance to win with a surprise attack. Taking out legends with these tactics maybe dishonorable, but it is with these victories that their name will soar to the heavens, and there is no dishonor with victory.
