THE ORIOLE CLAN
The Oriole Clan were founded in 1168 when Emperor Toturi III gave the former Tsi family, the longtime line of imperial blacksmiths, minor clan status.
To the confusion of historians thorough the Empire, the Tsi family appeared to have born twice. It was yet unknown if these two families were completely unrelated, or if there was a link between them.
In the oldest instance, the Tsi family was founded by a gaijin named Tsi Wenfu when his smithing work caught the eye of Emperor Hantei Genji. Genji declared that Wenfu couldn't possibly be a gaijin and allowed him to found the Tsi family.
The second recorded instance occurred during the rule of Emperor Hantei XXX, who commissioned a Crane swordsmith to make a sword for his son. The swordsmith had a ronin apprentice named Tsi, and the Crane allowed Tsi to create the saya for the blade. The Emperor was so taken with the beauty of their work that the Crane was made the personal smith of the Emperor and Tsi was given the right to a family name.
The Tsi were an extremely small ronin family, with only half a dozen members at any time.
The blessing of Toturi III came upon the Tsi in 1168 after Tsi Zutaka, the family daimyo was rescued from bandit thugs operating under the Ninube in Otosan Uchi. Zutaka had been sabotaging weapons that the bandits forced him to repair for at least a year. Zutaka was rescued by Mirumoto Ryosaki, Isawa Angai and Agasha Miyoshi on the night that Asahina Sekawa banished the darkness from Otosan Uchi.
Mirumoto Rosanjin brought Zutaka to the Imperial Court. Zutaka came bearing the blade of Hantei XVI, Toturi Naseru's sensei, which had been in his possession for a time. Naseru was away, so the blade was presented to Empress Toturi Kurako, as well as a recounting of the Tsi's aide in defeating the bandits. Zutaka was given the Oriole's greatest honor, the commision to forge what would become the ancestral sword of the Toturi Dynasty, the Sword of the Righteous Emperor.
Steel, Gold and Silver were the clan coloring.
The Oriole Clan was allied with the Dragon for their aid, and joined the Alliance of Minor Clans the same year of its foundation.
The Tsi family was the only family of the Oriole Clan. Its members were no longer ronin, but Minor Clan samurai.
Upon its foundation on the reign of Hantei Genji the family was granted with a small estate in the West Hub Village of Otosan Uchi. The Tsi family remained there after the Fall of Otosan Uchi.
