Kira - A vassal to the Hojo, who provide them with medical equipment and such. Lead by the Chief Chirurgeon but are currently homeless due to the destruction of the Medicae deck, and are thus inhabiting the various infirmaries that each of the other clans possess, as they are far more skilled than the other clan's doctors, though no-one is really happy with that situation.
