The Era of the Heavenly Empress
A diplomat from the Merenae Kingdoms
Sent as the Merenae diplomat to the Emerald Empire, he made contact instead with The Kingdom of Yoritomo, as he could speak Rokugani. Negotiating with Yoritomo Kosho, he traded both new engines that could be used to make the Kingdom’s kobunes far faster than that of the Empire, and also rifles and pistols, for the Empire’s famous katana swords. While he conspired with Kosho to attack the Empire, in the end he decided that it would be too costly to mount an attack in the face of a shoreline guarded entirely by shugenja. Instead, a ‘foreigner district’ was established in one of the largest cities of the The Kingdom of Yoritomo, and he was installed as its governer.
