Shadowed Autumn Leaves
From Shishinza’s Dossier
Never before have a heard of a merchant giving up one of his own employees to a magistrate before an investigation had begun, but that is exactly now Righteous runs his business. Righteous is the chief merchant of Doji Shibata and is known within Broken Wave City for the cleanliness of his house. On several occasions the man discovered his people were involved in illegal activity. Where most merchants would conceal the truth, Righteous reveals it. Many investigations have been ended before they had begun by Righteous’ vigilance. Sure, some of the lesser caste avoid working with Righteous because of his law-abiding tendencies, but most samurai don’t bat an eye at the extra zeni or two his services cost. What’s two zeni compared to supporting the rarest of heimin, an honest merchant?
