Title: Witch Hunter
Because of the diffuse structure of the family, the Kuni are known as much for their order of Witch Hunters as they are for their schools. Garbed in dark robes and daubed with imposing makeup to hide their faces from evil spirits, the members of this group seek out mahō-tsukai and any who dare to practice the foul art of mahō within Rokugan. While the Kuni would generally accept anyone with the skills needed (shugenja primarily, but rarely, other mystics or experienced hunters of mahō-tsukai), in recent years, only members of the Crab Clan have sought out this solemn duty. Most are from the Kuni Purifier School. Witch Hunters operate with little oversight, each doing what they deem necessary to defend Rokugan against these threats. Any Witch Hunter can elevate another to the task, though few do so unless their apprentice has proven themselves time and again, and faced horrors that would shatter any soul still harboring doubts or uncertainties.
