The Lord of the Ide is a man approaching old age. Deeply devoted to the Emperor’s peace and to his clan’s alliances with the Phoenix and the Crane, Tadaji has devoted much of his career to making his rough-hewn and culturally distinctive clan more palatable to deeply conservative Rokugani society. This determination to conform and to maintain the peace has only become more intense since the death of his son, Ide Jikkyo, on a caravan expedition to Crab lands last spring.
Ide Tadaji can be considered the primary reason that Doji Satsume deigned to appear at the peace conference with the Lion. While Satsume was content to ignore his peace-loving son and the weakness of the Phoenix, the support of the Unicorn was decisive.
Tadaji is available as an ally to any who would offer respect and security to the Unicorn clan. He has an influence of 4 and a devotion limited to 1, 2 for Crane or Crab pcs, and up to 4 for Unicorn pcs.
