Clan Ashigawa


“...Born in the fiery flames of the forge

The spirit raises and builds aflame.

Quick does the sword strike and the opponent falls.”

  • Quoted from an Eastern Samurai poem.


History of Clan Ashigawa:


The origins of the Clan begin with a legendary founder known as Samejima. Samejima was born in a humble farming village to modest origins. His village was ruled by a tyrannical warband that extorted tribute out of the farmers and punished those who dared to defy them. Samejima experienced their tyrannical action when one of his uncles decided to organise a revolt against the warband to liberate the village. The revolt was crushed and ended in a bloody massacre of innocents. Samejima decided then that his purpose would be to liberate the village himself. Over the years, he trained secretly to improve his physical and mental prowess. Samejima was a spiritual man and made a monthly offering to his family shrine in homage of the spirits of heaven. Samejima trained with simple farming tools such as staffs, pitchforks and scythes. Around his mid-twenties, Samejima persuaded a number of farmers to train with him. He taught these farmers about his methods of practice and showed them how to turn the simple farming tools into weapons. Samejima was a talented leader and a strict driller who valued discipline and loyalty. Samejima continued to train his small group of followers secretly, and gradually recruited moret trainees. After a number of months, he decided it was time to organise another revolt. He carefully planned the right occasion and persuaded the bulk of the villagers to join his revolt, using the influence of his followers. Samejima organised the villagers in a strict formation, and used his disciples to maintain discipline within the ranks. When the Warband arrived to collect their tribute, they found the villagers organised in formation and ready to fight them again. The Warband did not hesitate and attacked but was quickly overwhelmed by the steady formation of villagers who were able to surround and subdue them all. The small battle was a decisive victory Samejima and his followers, and the village was at last liberated. Samejima was made Lord of his home village and founded Clan Ashigawa. Samejima proceeded to raise a large family, and carefully trained his sons and daughters to follow the militaristic and spiritual tradition that he created.

His descendants proceeded to expand the village and turn it into a proper feudal possession with wooden walls and a castle. Samejima’s militaristic and spiritual legacy set the foundations for a future Samurai tradition. With the extended feudalisation of Oyashima, Clan Ashigawa became vassals to a larger feudal Daimyo. Over the generations, Clan Ashigawa produced a substantial number of accomplished Samurai warriors who followed a strict code of honour and militarism, and paid homage to the ancestral spirits of heaven in their family shrine. In recent times, the Clan participated in several feudal conflicts. During one of the skirmishes, the Samurai's of the Clan were tasked to defend a village and delay the advancement of an enemy clan to give time for their overlord levies to mobilise. The skirmish ended being a bloody stand, in which the Clan was heavily outnumbered by the enemy and surrounded. Many Samurais perished, but the head of the Clan decided to flee with a small group of followers to save his life. The defeat dishonored the legacy of his clan, and he was given the choice to commit suicide or give up his Lordship. The Clanhead chose to flee the country with his family to the continent of Atlas. His sons who learnt of this dishonor decided to follow the Samurai tradition and retrieve honour to their clan by defending the Eastern settlement in the continent. They settled in the refugee camp of Tokoko and pledged their allegiance to Master Bobo.



Clan Ashigawa is a militaristic family with a rich history in producing some of the more valiant Sumarai in their domain, forming a crucial responsibility to whom they swear loyalty to. Even in defeat, Clan Ashigawa perseveres evermore in the name of their ancestors, determined to climb out from even the darkest depths. They hold a cautious and jaded view of other cultures with a stronger contempt for alter-races. Especially the white people.
