History

Hanzo Clan

Hattori Hanzō

The story of the group known as the Hanzō Clan truly begins centuries ago, in feudal Japan. 1582 following Oda Nobunaga's death, when Hanzō led the future shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu to safety in Mikawa Province across Iga territory with the help of remnants of the local Iga ninja clans as well as their one-time rivals in Koga. Some of both clans later followed Hanzō and became the Hanzō Clan. After Hattori Hanzo’s son Hattori Masanari proved a less successful leader than his father. They seek autonomy from the oppressive class system of the time, a few of them fled into the mountainous regions of Iga and Kōga. There they continue to developed ninjutsu, a stealthy martial art perhaps inspired by Sun Tzu's The Art of War. The Hanzō bloodline was returned with to the clan by Hattori Masashige second son of Hanzō.

Over a period of centuries, they refined their art in seclusion . Students trained and practiced the art from birth, playing children's games designed to impart expertise in unarmed combat, swordplay, weaponry, camouflage, escape and evasion. Ninjutsu was also designed to encourage spiritual growth by pushing oneself physically and mentally beyond normal human limits. The ninja were expert in espionage and assassination, and offered their specialized services to royal families and others who could afford them.

The Hanzō Clan are primarily based in Japan, but operate internationally. They operated as a secret society of Japanese nationalist samurai. They also fought the Hand in 1588 after they were co-opted by the Snakeroot, an ancient ninja clan which serves a primordial demon known only as The Beast.

They were allies of the Chaste and through them learned mystical martial arts. Also allies of Spider Society.

This group is this active in 2101.
