Kumiko is a young Scorpion tasked with honing her skills at the Lion/Crane peace talks at the Court of Kimusu. Though, she is a member of the Emperor’s Underhand, so it’s never that simple. Since there are so many young courtiers at the event, she is to dig up dirt on as many of them as she is able, and if necessary, use her skills as a seductress to create dirt on them.
