Kitsuki Tushiro

He wears his hair in a flowing tangled style, much like a Lion. He does this to mock Isoroku, his Crane enemy. He also has a perpetual smile that says I know more than you do.

Bio:

Tushiro is the only son of a wealthy magistrate. When he was younger he was promised in an arranged marriage to Seppun Sei, a beautiful and promising shugenja. In order to seal the marriage agreement, Tushiro was sent to the Kakita Dueling Academy at Shiro sano Kakita. At the academy he met a Crane, Doji Isoroku. Isoroku and Tushiro were friendly allies, and they could have become close friends except that Tushiro soon became jealous of Isoroku’s natural fluidity with the katana.

Jealously turned into hatred when Sei’s father decided that the original marriage agreement was not beneficial enough for his daughter, and new arraignments were made. Due to Isoroku’s prominent ancestor, who was a famous author, and whose path Isoroku was expected to follow, Sei’s father determined that Isoroku would be the better match.

Incensed, Tushiro left the Kakita Dueling Academy and swore to make Isoroku pay for the humiliation. He threw himself into new studies at the Kitsuki Diplomat Academy with a single-minded devotion. Later, through political maneuvering and his father’s connections, he was able to begin his quest to make Sei his own.

He is currently on a diplomatic mission at Shiro no Yojin, attempting to negotiate a peaceful solution to the Lion-Crane situation. His voice speaks strongly for the Lion’s cause. Recently, he has been able to seperate Isoroku from Sei, and is attempting to drive a wedge in their relationship.

But something sinister is happening at Shiro no Yojin that his Kitsuki training cannot ignore.
