Shadowed Autumn Leaves
From Shishinza’s Dossier
I will not attempt to chronicle all of my many successes, nor my few failures, here. I do not consider myself such an egotist. I am Yasuki Junsuina-hosekiban no Koware Nami Sunda-Mizuin Ichiro Shishinza. I grew up along the coast of Earthquake Fish Bay and was trained at the Yasuki Courtier School. I served my Clan and Family in the courts of the Crane, the Mantis, and the Phoenix, and handled the distasteful, though among the Crab at least, entirely necessary commercial interests of my Clan. I was taken as a yoriki by a now deceased Emerald Magistrate by the name of Ide Kiyonoshin, who, after five years of service, put my name forth for promotion and reassignment. I served in Zakyo Toshi as a junior Emerald Magistrate, and after two years assisting the beleaguered Emerald Magistrate there, was given my own office in the new city of Koware Nami Toshi, Broken Wave City in 1174. A decade has passed since then. I have spent my time in this city limiting the power and scope of the yakuza, the kaizokuban, and other lawless elements.
