Name: Moshi Janisha
Profession: Shugenja
Position: Its complicated.
Marital Status: Betrothed
Age: 26
Gender: Female
Skin: Brown
Hair: Black, reaches the middle of her back when down.
Eyes: Brown
Height: 5'0 (1.52m)
Weight: 126lb (57kg)
Build: Slightly pear-shaped and just visibly toned.

The first thing anyone notices about Janisha is her skin. Her brown skin is foreign and dark compared to even the most tanned Rokugani, and she makes no attempt to hide it. A slight smile graces her face most of the time in court, for the wonderment at snow has still not left her even after these past 2 years.

Formal: She wears a dull Orange Kimono of traditional length and cut, with Brown Centipedes crawling up her arms, and the Centipede mon on her Back and heart. Closer inspection shows that the repeating brown and orange layers underneath it are false in the colonial style, making the whole thing quite light. Her hair is kept in a 5 strand braid and a Thick brown Haori covers her at most times.

Her Obi is bright ultramarine blue on the outside, and yellow on the inside, designed in such a way that if worn and tied correctly, the yellow will only be seen in the bow. A large Lapis Broach with the Kanji for Sun engraved upon it is placed in the centre of the bow and around the centre of the Obi, a golden Centipede and multiple green mantis' ring the base of the Obi, bowing towards the sun.

Other times she wears a bronze Obi, with scaled blue Ryu and Orange Fushicho flying over the surface. Along the top in High Rokugani, and along the bottom in Ivindi is the phrase, "What place do we have to decide which is more important or more deserving of our worship, when such conflict does not exist above."

Informal (Shin length): A Colonial style Kimono of a dull brown, which appears to only be one layer. Her family mon is once again on her back and heart this time in orange, and if you pay close attention the stitching is all in blue. The obi for this is far thinner then traditional, and gold in colour. completing her families colours. Her hair is kept in a 3 part Ponytail on such occasions.
The whole outfit also looks way to cold for this weather.

Edit 1: After day 3, she is almost ALWAYS seen carrying a set of worn, wooden Prayer beads, ending in a small Emerald Centipede.
Edit 2: After day 12, she is always wearing a necklace that has a single Chrysoprase. The Mon of the Centipede is altered slightly, a tiny flower lying in the middle of the curled up Centipede.

As of day 29, her skin colour is now pale, like she has never seen a day of sunlight, with a slightly unhealthy pallor to it

Kazusa isn't well know outside of her clan. A quiet type who pursues consideration rather than action she was given her position because of her ability to step back and view the larger picture. Once, she was married, her husband was killed by a house guest. Some say it was an oni in disguise, or perhaps a mad monk, but the truth lies with her as to how and why her husband perished and she has nothing to say on the matter. Trained outside the usual dojo by her grandfather, Kazusa had never met another Scorpion aside her sensei until after her training was completed.

Though it is rumored she has traveled outside Scorpion lands and into Rokugan proper on secret missions for her lord Nitoshi, those who could say for certain are wise enough to stay silent on the matter. Yet it's whispered that terrible things transpired in the Emerald Empire on such occasions.

Dotai is usually attired in a well cared for Kimono usually adorned with a green Spider Mon and the over his heart side by side is the Susumu Courtier and the Face of Emma-O appears as if made out of fresh Ink. His other outfit is painstakingly crafted armor, a near masterwork of paper, silk and a few scraps of steel plates woven with red lacquer alongside the katana that would rest on his hip one of the few blade Gyushi nee Daigotsu Kageto finished before he became the Smith of Death the Reitō kiba or Frozen Fang, the blade itself is cold to the touch and is the light blue of a frozen lake.

He maintains a light goatee and mustache combo meticulously trimmed with his hair pulled up into a simple ponytail.

Name: Kakita Kyoumi
Profession: Storyteller
Position: Artisan dispatched to the Court to entertain and enlighten
Marital Status: Single
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Hair: Dark brown, cut short in front with a bun and short tail.
Eyes: Dark gray
Height: About 5'2"
Weight: About 115 lb
Build: Nimble and athletic, though trained extensively neither in the arts of the fan or the sword, but more a natural grace.

Kyoumi favors a fine cornflower and indigo kimono, embroidered with the deep green and black needles of the pine. Her obi is white trimmed with scarlet, and the twin scarlet ribbons are a common decoration of the obi of Phoenix clan shugenja. Beneath her kimono, she wears deep blue hakima and a green kamishimo trimmed in indigo, perhaps a tribute to the Dragon hosts, or perhaps to coordinate with her overkimono. She currently wears a jade bead bracelet and an exotic necklace of twisted silver and steel so pure they shine blue in the sunlight. On the necklace is a cameo, an aquamarine carved with a Crane mon. She also wears two iron rings, one on either hand. One is inset with jade, and one is inset with obsidian. A polished wooden comb with a painted silk flower decorates her hair.

She carries a fan of blue silk on one side, and silvery-gray silk on the other painted with flowers and sayings from the Tao.

She almost always has a ready smile, a friendly greeting, and an easy laugh. Her voice is musical and powerful, swift to catch a room. And she has a gift with animals...they love her.

Name: Kitsune Konjō
Profession: Summoner
Position: Delegation Head, Diplomatic Mission from the Kingdom of Zogeku
Marital Status: Single, Unattached
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Hair: Dark Red
Eyes: Dark Brown
Height: Medium
Weight: light enough to quickly scale a tree
Build: Unassuming

From spending most of his life outside, Konjō's skin is almost as tanned as an Ivindi farmer. His outer layer of clothing is Green, bearing both the Mantis and Kitsune Mons, while the inner layer is Fox brown. He doesn't try to call too much notice to himself since his companion, a red panda that responds to being called Naofumi, is usually garnering all the attention.
During formal situations, Konjō carries a mālā (prayer beads). The mālā was a gift from his Ranger parents and the beads alternate between jade, ivory, and crystal.

Name: Togashi Gozato
Profession:Dragon Clan Tattooed Monk
Position:Old Sensei
Marital Status: Unmarried
Age: Not quite old enough to remember the Hitomi and Hoshi families... maybe?
Gender: Male
Hair: Shaved (but grey sideburns)
Eyes: Brown
Height: Normal
Weight: Slim

When Iweko I needed a tutor for her daughter, she sent word to her former Clan for a teacher. The Order of the Togashi sent Gozato to the capital, the first time he had been out of the Dragon Mountains in his life. Still, he carried himself with wisdom and wit appropriate to his order, encouraging his young student in her curiosity and studiousness, but careful to always remind her of her duty. Residents of the Imperial City and Winter Courts prior would remember him for his odd hours and frequent observations that seemed to translate the wisdom of the Tao into more accessible ideas.

When Kanpeki rose, Gozato returned to the Dragon Mountains. This Winter Court finds him an older, more embittered man. He sees the fate of the Empire laid out before it, and seems all to aware of his own impact upon its course.

Name: Suzume Kenichi
Profession: Yoriki
Position: Delegate for the Emerald Spider
Marital Status: Single
Age: 35
Gender: Male
Hair: Black
Eyes: Dark Brown
Height: Average for a Rokugani
Weight: As above
Build: Fairly lean but sturdy enough

Reaching his gempekku a year after the uncovering ( and refutation ) of the Spider Clan infiltration of the Sparrow Clan, Kenichi has spent most of his career as a Bushi serving as a Yoriki - first of all for an Emerald Magistrate in Kyuden Doji, and then for a Jade Magistrate called Kuni Rioto, who may well be attending court too.

During his time at Kyuden Doji, he met a courtier of the Spider Clan who saw potential in him and began training him in the ways of the court. It was a long term investment as he had no desire to turn away from his path as a bushi at the time. However, nearly two decades on from their first meeting, they were reunited at her request when she asked him to work as an affiliate for the Emerald Spider at the upcoming Winter Court.

As an ascetic, Kenichi's clothing is not elaborate. As a representative at court, he acceded to the offer of a new kimono. Plain in design, it is elegant in its simplicity and durable in its quality. In colour, it is a reddish brown ( brown for the Sparrow but with a tinge of the crimson used by the Susumu ) with the mon of the Sparrow Clan on one arm and the Emerald Spider on the other. He usually wears a conical hat.

Profession: Courtier
Position: Delegate of the Loyal Scorpion
Marital Status: Single
Age: 23
Gender: Female
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black
Height: 1.60 m
Weight: 51 kg

Onasugamiso is the second daughter of the daimyo of the Palace of Crimson Shadows. Her older sister died in a fire a couple years back and her father, formerly of the Kakita, has gone missing since Lord Nitoshi declared in favor of the Emperor Hantei Kanpeki. She has worked in the court of Ryoko Owari Toshi and for the past two years she has been stationed in the Onyx capital, which actually means she has been constantly on the move following the current of the various battles.

The Bayushi is a quite talented storyteller and has already published one of her stories, which some might recognize as an alternative version of one of her father's most successful stories.

Mask description: Unless posted otherwise, the Scorpion wears a mask that covers the left upper part of her face, which her facial expression to be mostly evident
