Kanshigumi: The Ivory Lotus
"Character does not necessarily come with samurai blood, but neither does poverty always breed nobility. Infinite variety."
Miya Noriyuki – along with his daughter Setsuko and grandson Nobutaka – was recently rescued from ronin thugs by the second patrol of Kanshigumi first squad. He was outwardly calm during his captivity, but Nobutaka-kun is his only male decendant and his distress over the dangerous situation chilled him. He is appropriately grateful for the rescue and is poking around for information on this new police force.
