The Smoking Serpents
The Smoking Serpents is a small band of rebels led by Angylyn Shiho; a former Tatsu Samurai that became aware of the country's more menacing motives and decided to turn her back against it, risking her life. Against but clearly outmatched by the corrupted Tatsu clan, their actions and existence are to be hidden from the shogun's radar, one step at a time, their missions vary from single target assassinations, infiltration, and sabotage.
The Smoking Serpents often tread outside their revolution, they actually began protecting a village from bandits after being hired by Angylyn herself. They serve others in return for payment, whenever it’s dealing with hitmen or supernatural beings. Their compound is located behind a local Sashimi joint ran by Kasamatsu, where she stirs up good, (but not too good) dining. The members consist of Angylyn, Hiro, Nioh, Waradashi, Kasamatsu, and a few other unexpected contenders. The Smoking Serpents have completed hundreds of successful raids and heists that have sabotaged the Tatsu clan.
