The Three Clans of Lokyan
« on: December 17, 2013, 11:42:21 am »
Alongside his normal army of Pirates and Mercs, Lokyan's wife Hyun has trained three clans of warriors in the Shinobi arts and Bushido. Regarded as ninja due to their shinobi training, the clans are much closer to Ronin Samurai than true ninja. As nano-woven blades have been shown to penetrate Barriers and Shields, and certain types of hardsuit, swords have come back into vogue with pirates, and ancient sword techniques have been adapted to modern combat.

The Sukuu Clan (The Freed): Based around Stealth and Technology, the Sukuu specialize in Assassination and infiltration. They tend to carry a Locust SMG and a traditional Tanto blade, though some carry a longer Wakizashi into longer battles where sword fighting is possible. Their omni-tools are modified based on the user's preference, but they tend to prefer a concealed pistol, or derringer, attachment followed by incinerates and toxin deployment.

The Yokaze Clan(The Night mist/wind): The Yokaze are biotic specialists, having combined their Stealth training with biotic power. They wield whatever blade fits each Yokaze's style, but the standard is a Medium-length Wakizashi with a powerful pistol in reserve, yet they prefer to use biotics.Their repertoire includes powerful invisible barriers, mild cloaking, and the means for their name. Skilled Yokaze shinobi can agitate the air in a battlefield, creating a biotic mist that brings visibility down to  near zero, though it removes them from battle since it requires so much concentration. The Yokaze serve as mystics and strategists, many of the freed slaves that become members having been Asari as old as Matriarch, as well as Biotic slaves being used in both gladiatorial and mercenary combat throughout the galaxy.

The Shikaeshi Clan(The Resistance/Revenge):  The Shikaeshi are the more combat-oriented Shinobi clan, for those that prefer honourable combat  to sneaking around.  They serve as the 'police force' of Kalihir, and are the frontline soldiers when conflict breaks out. They carry long Nagamaki blades, or Naginata for ceremonial purposes, though a few have developed methods to use the spear in combat. In open combat, they carry assault rifles or shotguns, depending on the user. The original Shikaeshi ninja were augmented for strength, due to backgrounds in heavy labour and Gladiatorial combat, this increased strength allowed them to use the long and heavy Nagamaki blades with ease. Newer members of the clan undergo this same augmentation, though a more refined and painless process, as part of tradition, thanks to Katanask Technologies.


The three clan Leaders were all rescued in the same slave raid, and proved themselves extremely talented in training. When the time came, they founded their own clans based off their own specializations, and named them based on their own beliefs.

Gaijin Sukuu:  Born into slavery, Gaijin Sukuu was never given a name, nor did he ever meet his family. As such, he had no contact with other Drell until he met Lokyan. He was forced to work on dangerous engineering and tech jobs for his master, and frequently tried to escape. One of his escape attempts resulted in his cruel master running a blade down the entire left side of his face, leaving a deep scar. After escaping with Lokyan, the Drell asked for his name, and Gaijin had nothing to tell him. After learning Japanese, he found a word that he felt defined him: Gaijin, foreigner. He carries the basic Sukuu equipment, but completely eschews the Tanto for the Wakizashi

Kawara Yokaze: Kawara started life as many Asari did, living in luxury on Thessia. That lasted for twenty years. At age twenty, her parents died in a freak accident and she was sent to live with her aunt, who had a terrible gambling habit. When she was gearing up to depart on her Maiden Stage voyage across Citadel Space, the aunt arranged for her to be kidnapped and taken into slavery to pay off a debt. She spent over a hundred years as a sex slave before becoming a concubine as she began her matron stage. She was forced to use her biotics to entertain visitors to her master's domain. These would later be adapted to create the 'Night Mist' the Yokaze clan is known for. When Lokyan freed her and all the other slaves, she joined his crew, bringing a good deal of Asari with her. As a Matriarch that had spent over 700 years bouncing from master to master, she endeavoured to pay back the kindness of Lokyan, and became the first Yokaze ninja.

Teranus Shikaeshi: Teranus was once a military captain rising through the ranks of the Hierarchy, Teranus was disgraced after his father was caught selling Turian secrets to the Batarians using Teranus' access codes. Stripped of his rank and exiled, Teranus was eventually enslaved and forced to become a gladiatorial combatant, his muscles augmented for greater strength and durability via a highly painful and highly illegal process known as 'juicing', combining cybernetic implants and a chemical that strengthens muscle tissue. This form of juicing led to a psychological breakdown common in what is known as 'Gen 1 Juicers', which leads them to be bloodthirsty and prone to outbursts of anger. After being freed and treated using Katanask Technology's state of the art medical division, Juicing was reverse engineered into a much safer form, and Teranus and the Gen 1 Juicers were cured of this state, though they are still more violent than usual. The new 'juice' used by newer Shikaeshi do not suffer from these side-effects, yet are still much stronger that normal.

very easily. Since their numbers aren't exactly massive, and only about one of them is actually worth a **** in combat.

Maybe get masses of conscript infantry and teach 'em the bayonet. 

Then we reenact this part from that silly Tom Cruise Movie.
