The Gozoku have struck, and with that move the reign of the Hantei is changed forever. However, the three faces of the Gozoku seem to be playing at different games. The Crane, Scorpion, and Phoenix are consolidating their power while balancing the other two. Meanwhile, the Imperialists do what is yet within their power to oppose the Gozoku. With words, actions, and steel those who would see the Hantei restored fight a losing battle.
But, within the very heart of the Empire, a new threat grows. One that the Gozoku does not see...the one that may be the end of them all.
