CROW | 20 Questions
A tall, lithely muscular ronin, Crow is easily identifiable as formerly Ki-Rin, due at least in part to the old, worn leathers and furs she wears. Her face is long and angular, criss-crossed with scars but distinctly handsome to look at, and her cloud of dark hair defies all attempts at taming. She makes a striking figure, with a stoic, melancholy air–save when a pretty woman is around, where she is all winks, grins, and poetry.
KITSUNE SHIO | 20 Questions
While a kenku, Shio spends much of her time in a human disguise. There, she is short and wiry, her face dominated by a big hooked nose, hearkening to a beak. Her dark hair is streaked heavily with shocks of white. She has a slightly awkward air to her, as if she can’t quite get comfortable in her skin; despite this, she is a cheerful, laughing individual with a sometimes irreverent view of etiquette that proves… troublesome at times.
KUNI DAIYU | 20 Questions
Small and slender, Daiyu wears the traditional Kuni facepaint despite the trappings of an Isawa Ishiken: a white mask with shadows around her already deep-seated eyes. Her hair is dark and often crushed beneath a sugegasa. Daiyu’s eyes are rarely seen beyond the brim of the hat, but she watches with an almost paranoid intensity; between her silent staring and the facepaint, most tend to give her a wide berth.
HIDA ATSURYOKUNABE | 20 Questions
Atsu has the look of a strongman: big and barrel-chested, with a shaven head and wide, staring eyes. He has his fair share of scars from his time on the Kaiu Wall, and carries his massive tetsubo with deceptive ease. Everything about him is large and intimidating: his frame, his voice, and his gestures, save when he bends over to inspect an herb on the side of the road, where he becomes surprisingly gentle.
KITSUKI RYOJIRO | 20 Questions
A slight, gawky young man, Jiro has a long face still losing some of its baby fat. He keeps his hair in a neat topknot, and observes the world with curious intensity, as a Go player plotting out his next move. He is polite, earnest, and happy to be underestimated–even happier to have the world wrapped around his little finger.
