The Akahoshi family is known for being normal, which is to say they aren't known at all. The family is relatively small, many members tend to split up and follow their own path. However the members believe quite highly in honor and brothers have dueled to the death at least three times in the history of the family because one dishonored them. The most notable incident is that of 'Iko Jiroka' who dishonored the family by betraying two of his brothers for wealth. In the end he had fought against his younger brother, elder brother and finally his father where he was finally defeated.
