Shadowed Autumn Leaves
From Shishinza’s Dossier
There is only one word to describe Spittle, and that is fetid. I have arrested four of Spittle’s employees for possession of illegal opium, and each time Spittle spouts platitudes and apologizes and claims that, “surely now my house is clean.” Bah! I would do more to curb him but for the unfailing support of his patroness, Yoritomo Obaami. In private she tells me she knows that Spittle is disgusting, but that his family has served hers for centuries, and that she would hate to lose a perfectly good apple tree because of a single worm. I can’t help but agree with her, but that doesn’t change my personal feelings for the man.
