Motoyoshi Clan

The Motoyoshi Clan is a clan in the Yamatai Star Empire created by Andrew.

Introduction Of The Motoyoshi Clan

The Mon (紋) of the Motoyoshi Clan.

The clan was formed by Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and Shimizu Akina ( 清水明菜 ) in YE 28. The clan has a rich history which is entwined in both the Yamatai Star Empire and the Star Army of Yamatai. It is the only clan other than the Ketsurui Clan to rule the Star Army of Yamatai. In YE 30, Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko became Empress when she succeeded Ketsurui Uesu. Her time on the throne was short, and was ended with her own resignation after members of her clan deserted and betrayed the Yamatai Star Empire to form the United Outer Colonies. The part of the clan that remained in the Empire became affiliated with the Ketsurui Clan.

The clan remained separated into two parts; Yamatai no Motoyoshi and Jiyuu no Motoyoshi until YE 41 when Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko reunified the Clan. Her plans for the future unfolded quickly which brought the clan into a surge of rapid growth.
