Following the quick defeat of forces in Western Daresia, under the autonomous jurisdiction of Houses Kazusa and Chauffard, numerous movements and Japano-phobes blamed the inadequate military forces and leadership of House Kazusa, and many firmly believed that the House aided the Japanese invasion of Daresia. This led to the rise of a particularly radical movement, under the sole leadership of Laurence W. Mortcombe, in which many Mortcombe loyalists discriminated against citizens of Japanese heritage through frequent executions and raids. These movements were essentially vigilante groups formed against local Japanese-Daresians following consecutive military defeats throughout the opening stages the war in the Daresia.
