Actually if its not his parents it would likely be Motso's Younger brother Toju who was Daimyo.  In old lore he was noted to be one of the most powerful Kitsu Shuganja of his lifetime and was head of the Kitsu Soden Senzo school as well as Daimyo of the family.

Also, IIRC, Motso had no connection with the Kami (maybe he was forsaken, even?), which is way he took an unusual career for a Kitsu. It would make much sense for both the Kitsu and Agasha daimyo to be shugenja. It could go either way for the Seppun.

Now, I'm curious.  Why do you hope that one or more of them isn't a shugenja?  All three of those families have strong shugenja bloodlines, although Seppun are equally famous for their bushi.  However, in the most recent story, Kachiko and Satoshi were sending for the Seppun daimyo to do the cleansing and religious duties.  This implies that they're a shugenja.  The Kitsu and Agasha already have prominent members who are non-shugenja as well.

Because... shugenja are suppose to be few. And I know it is a fantasy, and I know that all the family have shugenja school and so on. But It will be very unique to have a courtier as a daimyo for one of those family. It could put some more politics or mistery around a story.

Yeah, that's fair.
