Legend of the Five Rings: Echoes
Court of Kimusu
The Court of Kimusu is held in the tranquil samurai village of Kimusu. In the spring of 1122 Court was held here to discuss peace between the Lion and Crane clans. Tensions had been rising steadily, and both sides hoped Kimusu could help calm things down.
In 1122 the Court is hosted by Doji Akagi, and his main guest is the Lion diplomat Ikoma Yojiro (Deceased). However, Court cannot be wasted, and many invites have been sent out, with every Major Clan sending a young samurai to learn the ways of Court—practice if you will, for the major Courts that will come with the winter.
Those in attendance include:
Akodo Genzo (Deceased)—A brash young samurai whose lord sent him on this mission to calm his raging heart.
Asako Hachi—An elderly courtier of the Phoenix who is showing off Sanjuro Keitaro (Deceased), a promising young shugenja.
Bayushi Kumiko—The representative of the Scorpion Clan. She simply wishes to learn the ways of Court.
Daidoji Katsu—A young samurai attending Court as Akagi’s personal yojimbo.
Ineko (Deceased?)—A beautiful young woman who excels in the arts. She is being shown off by Akagi.
Kaiu Banuken—The Crab delegate isn’t a young samurai at all, but a grizzled veteran missing an eye and leg. No longer capable of fighting, he was sent off as a courtier.
Kitsuki Hiro—The Dragon Clan delegate, and odd magistrate of the Kitsuki family.
Matsu Akiko (deceased)—This brash young woman is Yojiro’s yojimbo. Yojiro hopes the Court will teach her to temper her emotions with wisdom.
Otomo Ayumu—The Imperial representative at Kimusu, Ayumu is mostly present to mediate the peace talks, and to report back to Otosan Uchi with the results.
Seppun Fujiki—Having recently completed his gempukku, Fujiki is excited to prove himself as a powerful samurai.
Shiba Genji—This yojimbo has been tasked with protecting Isawa Keitaro and Asako Hachi at the court, and is gravely serious about his job, rarely talking to those around him.
Hong (Deceased)—The young Unicorn bushi is hoping to gain some knowledge of the Court in the hopes that he can elevate his minor station back home. He is familiar with Sanjuro Sakura, too familiar.
The town of Kimusu is protected by Daidoji samurai, who can—in a pinch—also substitute in as a champion for those who might need it. There are almost two dozen wandering the town, and about half that within the small castle itself. Those inside find out of the way places to stand guard, since the theme of the Court is peace.
