Hiruma Taifū

"We can take 'em!"



Taifū is eighteen years old and just as blustery as the name he took at his gempuku four years ago. He is loud, forthright, and quite certain of himself. He has a wife back in Crab lands and will – against rules of etiquette – speak proudly of his two-year-old son.

The Crab is actually fifth in a family that had six children, but only one of his older siblings is still alive. Two of his older brothers died in battles with the Shadowlands and the third was lost when one of the many tunnels under Hiruma Castle collapsed on his mapping party. His little sister will gempuku next year.
