Stereotypes exist for a reason. It is hard to say if “breeds like rabbits” refers originally to the animal or our Clan.

Year 1167, The War of the Fans. Heavy influence on the year of my Gempukku, after which I took the name Takahiro. Only me, Takari, Akimi, and Miyako were not involved in some way. Takamatsu, Takahatsu, and Takanosuke died in the fight. Takahide was seriously injured and became ineffective in combat, and just about anything else. Meguhime, Harumi, Tsukimi, Akimi, and eventually Miyami were married off to the Crane to keep what little peace remained. Deep rooted disdain for the Crane and distrust of the Empire. Takahide, being the eldest surviving son, was “allowed” to remain with the Clan, mostly due to his injuries. Takari remained as heir apparent to our line. I, being of sound mind and body and only slightly expendable, was sent to the Crane as an “honored guest.” As luck would have it, my “host” was one whom my nearest sister had been married to, Asahina Yawarakai.

Bloodspeaker attack in 750, no Crane assistance. Usagi Rail Incident in 808, Crane claiming what was not theirs. Emerald Champion “intervened” a year later, supporting the Crane interests of course, and many of our clan died. I am not looking forward to Crane hospitality.
