Today we unveil the 7th and 8th monk character eligible for the top of Clan prizes at GenCon 2012 in the Main Event.
Rokkaku, Master of Scrolls
Once, the man known as Rokkaku was a simple scribe serving the Phoenix Clan. Perhaps nothing more would have come of his life had he not had the good fortune to come into the personal service of the Master of Water, Asako Bairei. Under the tutelage of that peerless scholar, Rokkaku learned to leave research and knowledge, and for two decades, he has taken those traits and practiced them in service to the Brotherhood of Shinsei. Rokkaku is perhaps the order’s greatest scholar, and has personally overseen the reorganization and expansion of numerous Brotherhood libraries. His mastery of theological and historical information is vast almost beyond reckoning, so much so that he is often consulted by scholars from the Great Clans. As might be expected, he is among the Brotherhood’s greatest authorities on the origins and philosophies of the Fudo cult, and for this reason he was selected to be among those agents of the Brotherhood deployed to the Colonies. For his part, Rokkaku is devoted to his duty, but is also thrilled at the notion of recovering lost lore from the Colonies during his time there.
Kimura, Forgiver of Sins
The Fortune of Compassion and Forgiveness is not one of the more well known of the pantheon of Fortunes in Rokugan, and yet those few who devote themselves to Nagiroko-to are among the most dedicated and tireless of all orders within the Brotherhood. The woman known as Kimura is particularly well known throughout the Empire for her efforts, and she has traveled the width and breadth of Rokugan many times over, offering counsel to the simple folk and samurai alike, absolving them of their misdeeds and offering her simple wisdom to help them make wiser choices in the future. Her gentle spirit and kind mannerisms have earned her the adoration of countless thousands from all walks of life, and she is welcomed virtually everywhere with open arms and great hospitality. Even the sternest and most traditional of families at least pay respect to her works, and she has been a guest at Shiro Matsu on more than one occasion, something that very few members of the Brotherhood can claim. Troubled by the resurgence of the Fudo cult, Kimura hopes to absolve those betrayed by its teachings in the Colonies, and return them to the blessed wisdom of the Tao.
