The Clan of Carnage Schools

Chiha Ravager

[Bushi]
Bonus Attribute: Reflexes
School Skills: Commerce, Courtier, Etiquette, Intimidation, Any one Courtly skill, Any one Military or Illicit skill. Weapon: Samurai or Kenjutsu and Any one Weapon skill.
Emphasis: Ōdachi (Kenjutsu or Weapon: Samurai)
Honor: 2.5
Outfit: Daishō, Heavy or Medium Armor, Extravagant Clothing, Ōdachi, Personal Effects, 5 Ryō.

Rank 1 - Bite Hard
Add X to all damage done by swords, where X is twice your Insight Rank. Ōdachi are [Samurai] weapons for you.
To the Chiha, all that matters is the kill.

Rank 2 - Swing First
Before Initiative is rolled, you may make a contested Intimidation/Willpower roll against all opponents that can see or hear you. Your opponents resist with Honor/Willpower. Any opponent that fails must subtract 5 from their Initiative roll.
If they falter, strike them down.

Rank 3 - Strike Swiftly
You may make melee attacks as a Simple Action while using [Samurai] weapons.
Surviving your attack is an insult. Answer it.

Rank 4 - Drink Deeply
If you have dealt damage to a target, all further attack rolls against them in that combat gain +3k0.
When your blade is thirsty, satisfy it.

Rank 5 - Live Cheaply
Before Initiative is rolled and your Rank 2 activates, you may spend a Void Point. If you do, your Initiative roll is increased by 10, you begin combat in Fire stance, your ATN is set to 5, and all attack and damage rolls you make are increased by +2k1. These effects stack but only last until the end of the first round.
Embrace death and you will never fear it.

Chiha Strangler

[Bushi]
Bonus Attribute: Strength
School Skills: Athletics 2, Intimidation, Investigation, Lore: Underworld, Stealth, Weapons: Samurai or Jujutsu and Kenjutsu
Emphasis: Any (Jujutsu)
Honor: 1.5
Outfit: Daishō, Extravagant Clothing, Medium or Heavy Armor, Any Two Weapons, Personal Effects, 4 Ryō.

Rank 1 - Throw Your Weight
Armor never penalizes your Jujutsu rolls. Add X to damage rolls while Unarmed, where X is equal to your Insight Rank plus half the Reduction offered by a set of armor you're currently wearing. Unarmed strikes gain the [Samurai] tag for you.
Bear down on the world, and it will move aside for you.

Rank 2 - Never Flinch
When testing Intimidation, add X to the total of your roll, where X is your Strength trait. When resisting Social skills or Fear effects, you may chose to take a malus of 5 and use Intimidation/Willpower instead.
The one who flinches has already lost.

Rank 3 - Dirty Your Hands
You may make attacks as a Simple Action when using [Samurai] weapons.
The world is harsh and cruel, as should you be.

Rank 4 - To the Bitter End
When Grappling, your opponents take a malus of X on any Grapple Action rolls, where X is the Reduction your armor offers you.
Only death should loosen your grip. Preferably theirs.

Rank 5 - Finish It Before It Begins
When rolling Initiative, you may choose to use Insight Rank/Water+2 instead of Insight Rank/Reflexes for the roll. In addition, as a Free Action, you may spend a Void Point to add your Perception trait to each kept Attack and Damage die. This effect lasts for the rest of the skirmish, but afterwards you are Exhausted.
When the enemy is still considering violence, you should already be resolved to it.
