I am a Shosuro Infiltrator from the Scorpion Clan working as a Bodyguard and Problem-Solver for another PC, who works for the Dragon Clan Champion. My objective is to help the Dragon Clan to rise to major clan status because said PC wishes it, and I have been ordered by my daimyo to assist the PC in every way possible.

When did your character’s entourage notice his potential?
Your character has been out in the world for a while, what has he been doing?
Heisuke’s first assignment was to pose as a travelling ronin while spying on the Lion. After a couple of years of this, he encountered the PC.
What are your character’s views on honor and glory? Does he pursue those ideals?
Glory fades. It has its uses, and its drawbacks, but in time all will be forgotten. Honour is a luxury, one which cannot be found in failure. It is better to leave a battle with dirty hands than no hands at all. If there is limited honour to go around, it might as well go to those who can wield it best (courtiers, nobility, etc).
Is your character married?
Is your character religious?
Heisuke doesn’t spend much time praying or making sacrifices.
Where does your character see himself in 10 years? If dead, how does your character expect to die?
Heisuke doesn’t plan that far ahead – his life has changed direction often enough now that he’s become quite zen about it. He’ll go where life takes him.
Where does the player see the character in 10 years? If dead, how do you expect your character to have died?
I suspect dead. Probably one of:
- getting too sloppy/slow and being overwhelmed by guards;
- being assassinated by a rival; or
- by seppuku to hide a secret.
