A clan that had holdings in Tosa province in the Southwest quarter of Shikoku, they were known to be a clan of scholars, having access to skilled magicians, but their location on an island reduced their strategic threat significantly. The Chosokabe clan has been quiet for several decades, after a rumored major disaster, making no contact with other Daimyo or paying respects to the Emperor. They were at one point currently assumed to be destroyed or otherwise neutralized.
The clan has recently reappeared, not as scholars, but as a militant force intent on conquering Shikoku and, eventually, the entire country. Their troops, known as Forsaken, do not seem human, instead being empty suits of armor or bundles of clothing which fight with the skill of their human counterparts, but are more resistant to damage and dissolve into heaps of empty gear when defeated.
Chosokabe Motochika, the Daimyo of the clan, has taken to being called Amenominakanushi, the name of the primary god in the original Shinto creation myth. This, as well as Motochika’s naming of their generals as other gods in the same pantheon, represents their intention to bring a new “genesis” upon Japan.
