Yogo family


Clan: Scorpion Clan 
Founded: 36

The Yogo family was founded by the shugenja Yogo - the husband of Asako - who had been cursed during the War Against Fu Leng. Cursed to betray those he loved, Yogo joined the Scorpion Clan after Bayushi convinced him that he did not love Bayushi or the Scorpion, and therefore could not betray them. [1]
