Izu Serpents



The Ito source their serpents from the jungles of the island they inhabit, Izu.
Having heard the call to serve their Kami these servants are an incredibly useful resource for the Ito. Individually they can be useful but when combined in larger numbers they can quickly outnumber and tire stronger opponents leaving them vulnerable to the companions’ attacks.
Certain Ito have trained to work with the serpents and have developed useful techniques to stop the enemies of their clan.
