The Tatsumaki Clan
The Tatsumaki Clan is a large faction of monster hunters based in Juukinzoku. Their exact number of members is unknown, but it is estimated to be around 300 hunters around around 50 people under the age of eighteen. The clan’s leader is Niji Tatsumaki, though he has said he will step down once the heir to the clan, his niece Rei, is ready to be a leader. While the leadership of the clan is hereditary, the position is only considered for family members who posses a power known as “The Awakening”. It allows for the leader to detect when and where a rift between the Material Plane and a plane such as the Shadowfell has occurred. Only two members can ever have this power at a time – the leader and the heir.
The Tatsumaki’s main focus is on battling demons and devils. However, they also focus on undead, aberrants, and constructs. They have six branches dedicated to battling these enemies: Red (demons), Blue (devils), Green (undead), Purple (aberrants), Yellow (constructs), and Orange (general). Members of the clan wear colors in accordance with their branch.
