|“I present to you, the exalted emperor and empress of Ninjago, and their daughter, the Jade Princess, Princess Harumi.”|
The Royal Family was the imperial family of Ninjago. Despite their titles, they were not truly Ninjago's rulers and were not involved in public affairs; having been figureheads with no real power.
The Emperor and Empress had wanted a child and heir to the throne for a long time but were unable to have one of their own for unknown reasons. After the attack of the Great Devourer they found the newly orphaned Harumi though the media and, moved by her story, decided to adopt her and raised her as their own, completely unaware that their new daughter hated them and didn't want to be a princess.
- Their house symbol is a lotus flower.
- Apparently it is some sort of tradition for women in the Royal family had their hair bleached when they reached a certain age. Hair bleaching is not a thing done in actual East-Asian royalties, historical or present.
- They were extremely private people.
- Some more background on the royal family and their bodyguard Hutchins will be further explored in "various media". https://twitter.com/TommyAndreasen/status/1033281521673797633 https://twitter.com/brothershageman/status/1117141710113361920
