  • Doji Hideyasu

    Doji Hideyasu is a proud man with a fine lineage and a full purse. He should have - as far as he is concerned - been the leader of his squad. Being forced to bow to a Bayushi has tested his patience... but not broken it. With a bit of time, he's sure he …

  • Kiminori

  • Bayushi Tatsuo

  • Yogo Sakae

    A Yogo born with green eyes is a recognized irony among the Scorpion, who normally believe such coloring to be a sign of celestial favor and luck. Still, some among the family hold that those children are more likely to escape the famed curse, or at least …

  • Shiba Yoshihiro

    Yoshihiro misses home, his family, and the mountains. Everybody knows this because it's his favorite topic of conversation. He is also fiercely loyal to his clan and mildly resents being put in a position where he is not directly protecting an Isawa. He …

  • Utaku Meixiang

    This battle maiden may grimace slightly when her teammates insist on calling her "Mei-chan," but she tolerates it because its easier than listening to them butcher her real name. What she really hates about her new position is the general lack of riding …

  • Ikoma Sayuri

    Not quite the mousy scholar or blustering epic poet most people expect of an Ikoma, Sayuri nonetheless knows her history well. She is not especially comfortable regaling others with battle tales, however, and would much prefer to make the stories others …

  • Bayushi Ittoku

    Ittoku does not understand why his younger cousin Tatsuo got to be leader of first squad while he is stuck taking orders from a Matsu in ninth squad and is willing to share his dismay with anyone who will sit still for it. He wears a kitsune half mask.

  • Daidoji Kazuo

  • Hida Takao

    Tarochiyo stumbled in through the warehouse doors and shut them, dropping the wooden bolt into place and standing back. The sounds of combat came drifting through from outside. He sighed and turned, feeling much safer than he had a few seconds before. His …

  • Soshi Kamo

    Soshi Kamo’s odd approach to the notion of the Scorpion mask notwithstanding, is a shugenja of good reputation within his clan. His distinct (his sensei occasionally used the word “outlandish”) appearance is a bit off-putting to more traditional samurai, …

  • Shiba Hanako

    Shiba Hanako’s life seems to revolve around ritual. She practices with her naginata in the morning, meditates several times a day, and usually performs a small tea ceremony just after dinner. She maintains a ready calm in the face of turmoil, but also …

  • Mirumoto Genzaburo

    Mirumoto Genzaburo seems a man on edge. Perhaps that is because he comes from a well-known dueling school and has been assigned to police a Crane district. Perhaps it is because he was gifted with one of the rare Twin Sister Daisho upon his gempuku …
