The Time Of Blades and Magic
Once known as the Ki-Rin Clan, the Unicorn Clan departed Rokugan shortly after the Day of Thunder. The Kami Shinjo, founder of the clan, hoped to avert other threats to Rokugan by discovering them first. They roamed the world for eight centuries before returning to Rokugan.
The Unicorn have the finest cavalries in all of Rokugan. They are considered barbarians by most of the other clans. They spent eight hundred years outside the empire, exploring the Burning Sands and other lands, and Rokugan’s cultured society believes that in the two centuries since their return, they have not learned the ways of their motherland. The clans could not be more wrong. The Unicorn know the ways of their cousins, but choose to follow their own, influenced by gaijin cultures. Because of this, they are held in low regard by many, but feared for their military might.
