Father: xDadx , Master Sensei at one of the Bayushi dojos
Mother: xMomx , Duelist Shiba married into family

Parents met at Topaz Championship. During the Iaijutsu duel, their match ended in a Kharmic strike. Developed relationship that sparked into love. Result of duel was seen as a fortuitous omen and the families sanctioned the love and arranged the marriage.

Twin sister of Bayushi Konitsu
Both trained at father’s dojo

Raven black hair frames a delicate face, though most do not often get a good look at the upper half of it. Kiwadoi rarely removes her mask, usually only in the presence of friends & family. It covers the top half of her face, the visage of some form of demon crafted in white, and highlighted in black. What could be described as a tail extends down the left side of her face, hugging her jawbone. Standing almost as tall as her brother, she is much taller than most Rokugani women. Her basic provided armor is a little more ornate then most, which means it had one or two more small lacquered pieces. Perhaps the smith had a few extra nice bands of material from a previous project for a higher ranking samurai and decided to throw them into a basic set as he would have no other use for them. Whatever the reason, Kiwadoi takes great pride in her armor and always makes sure that it is cleaned and buffed to a shine.

Normally stoic and quiet, others might mistake Kiwadoi as being submissive to her brother. This is hardly the case, as the two have had some tremendous battles that would best be regaled over a large bottle of sake. In truth, she is often observing her surroundings, picking out potential threats and hunting for clues that might give away a samurai’s weaknesses.

Utterly loyal to her family and clan, Kiwadoi is completely faithful to Bayushi’s promise to Hantei: Protect the Empire, no matter the cost to self, clan, or honor.

Kiwadoi is the type of person who realizes that life as a samurai in Rokugan is a game. One that is not always fair, and one that she has every intention on winning. She fully intends to parlay her bloodline ties to the Bayushi line and her skill into a position of social power. Governor of a major family holding has a nice ring to it.

Topaz tournament
*Tsuma, Crane Lands
Konitsu and I arrived with little fanfare to the town of Tsuma. At the gates we were greeted by a fellow Scorpion, a Bayushi. I believe his heraldry marked him as Paneki, an Emerald Magistrate. He bid us enter after checking our papers and one of our traveling companions [Scorpion James] recommended an Inn that was favorable to those of our clan.
*Inn of the Last Light
Brother and I made our way to the Inn of the Last Light and found a desirable table. One of the servants inquired as to our tastes, and soon brought us sake. An odd note was that she bore a necklace with Sunetra’s personal mon. This was a favorable Inn indeed. A Lion and Mantis bushi could be heard over all, their conversation loud and boisterous. Akodo Hitomi w/ Yoritomo Zenwadi I later learned, two Topaz contestants. They caught brother’s eye and Konitsu approached and was offered drink. Konitsu accepted, and brought the sake back to our table. Hitomi feigned anger and swung at brother. Doji Seiyami diffused Hitomi. Shared drinks with Hitomi, Seiyami, Ikoma Jun, and Yoritomo. Yoritomo insinuated I was Konitsu’s servant and offered to pay for my services. That swine! He departed and Doji offered to take us to clean the roadsweariness from us before presenting ourselves to the contestant registration.
