Shadowed Autumn Leaves
From Shishinza’s Dossier
Few men on Kaigen’s Island are as constantly busy as Doji Shibata. Shibata is the brother of Doji Takako and her assistant in court, he is the head of the Crane Clan on Kaigen’s Island, and the manager of the Crane Clan’s merchants within the city. Shibata is a tireless man, always busy with his myriad duties. Shibata always seems overworked, but, as far as I have seen, has never allowed the weight of his duties to dilute his courtesy. The middle-aged Crane is married to the young Doji Fujiaki, and both seem pleased with their arrangement. Shibata is generally a helpful man, though it can be difficult to reach him during the course of an investigation.
