Blood of the Empire
Following the Spider Clan’s ascent to a Great Clan, the Susumu family was established. Susumu’s daughter, Susumu Kuroko, became it’s first daimyo. 26 In 1174 the Empress allowed to build a temple devoted to Susumu. The Master of Water Asako Bairei was instrumental, as he declared Susume was to be venerated as an ancestor of a noble family, not as a Dark Fortune.
