Doji Magistrate Technique
Rank One: Temper Steel With Honor
Doji Magistrates are trained to fight with compassion, avoiding injury to both themselves and whenever possible to others – a style known to the Crane as Mizu-do (Way of Water). They specialize in the use of weapons designed to disarm or capture foes rather than kill them. You may add an amount equal to your Air Ring to your Armor TN (unless caught helpless or unaware). You gain a +1k0 bonus to your attack rolls when fighting with a jitte or sasumata.
The eldest son of the noble Doji Gozen is known in some circles as the Crane Clan Fool. Despite his high status within the clan, Wakao struggles to overcome his father’s reputation as a boor. His mother is said to have been a Lion general who married a Crane in secret, his only tie to her being the blade he wields. Wakao is engaged to Kakita Akemi, the daughter of a Kenshinzen running the tournament, and he knows that a Scorpion in the contest wants to win her affection. Wakao is quiet but has a strong presence. Wakao stays apart from the other contestants, unless he can enlist their help in revealing the Scorpion who wants to steal his fiancé.
