Origins and early years
Yashida members, including Lord Shingen, were also found in Tokyo's upper-class Meguro District. The Yashida Clan reached their height of power under Lord Shingen, who with the assistance of the Hand established the clan's supremacy over rival Yakuza clans and therefore dominate Japan's underworld, including its drug trade. Under his leadership, Clan Yashida were bringing in x10 as much money as the Kingpin's organization, with x10 the blood spilled. Wolverine tore down his empire, before killing him.
His daughter Mariko Yashida took over, and vowed to end the clan's involvement with the underworld and go legitimate. She became a major power in Japan's underworld, though she was opposed by the Hand and her half-brother, the Silver Samurai who undermined her authority. She was poisoned by the Hand, and to end her suffering, Wolverine killed her.
The Silver Samurai turned out to be an ineffective leader, resulting in the clan ending up under the control of the Mongolian Clan Kaishek. Due to the manipulations of Kia Kaishek, Wolverine was drawn into a Kaishek power struggle. Upon the end of the conflict, Clan Yashida regained its independence.
