Realm of the Everburning Sun
Led by Monogashira Kiyowara Masahiro, the Kiyowara have always been a bit of a smaller player in the politics of Shinzuhide. Very loyal to Daimyo Nakagawa, the Kiyowara have always been respected for their rational decision making among the nobility of Minkai. The Kiyowara also serve as the protectors of the lucrative “Jeweled Path” from their capital Shimagahara.
The Kiyowara were established centuries ago to defend merchants traveling the many crossroads of Shinzuhide. As such, they have a strong background in both economics and defense. Known for their caution, the Kiyowara have enjoyed relative diplomatic peace for much of its existence. The notable exception to this is the Sen clan, who have long desired to take Shimagahara’s spot as the main trade crossroad in Shinzuhide.
