We close our unveiling of the characters from the Brotherhood of Shinsei who will join Clans as part of the Top of Clan prize for the Main Event at GenCon 2012 with the following two:
Jikoji, Fist of Stone
To look upon Jikoji, one would not imagine the power he possesses at his disposal. He is a man of slight build, often described as wiry, but betraying no hint of the strength that a Crab or aMatsumight possess. It is ironic, then, that the small man is capable of things that even the strongest samurai warrior would give everything to possess. Bone, stone, and even metal can shatter under the force of his strikes if he so desires it. Despite that he possesses the greatest blessings of the Fortune of Strength, Jikoji is not a violent man. He acts only when necessary to prove the ascendancy of his Fortune or to act in the defense of the Brotherhood or the Empire as a whole. Before he reached his current level of spiritual harmony, however, Jikoji was known as a tempestuous and dangerous individual. As a young member of the Brotherhood, he participated in a number of dangerous, full contact tournaments that were never endorsed by the Brotherhood, but which certain orders conduct in secret. It is alleged that Jikoji lost only once, the result of which is the massive scar that trails up his chest and ends upon his cheek. For now, the Brotherhood has dispatched the Fist of Stone to the Colonies, all too aware that the machinations of the Fudo cult may require his particular skills.
Okazaki, Breaker of Wills
Okazaki is like unto a manifestation of the sea itself: powerful, irresistible, and inevitable. Her temperament is like that of the Fortune she serves, both gentle and wrathful in alternating degrees with no discernable reason for changing between the two. Unlike many of her other fellows, she has no particular field of expertise or area of specialty. When a physical obstacle to the Brotherhood’s agenda presents itself, they dispatch individuals such as the Fist of Stone. When a political obstacle presents itself, the Whisper is sent. But when an intractable individual appears, someone who thwarts the needs of the Brotherhood for no readily apparent reason and who refuses to step aside to allow common sense to win the day,Okazaki is sent. No one, no matter how intent their desire to offend the Brotherhood and for whatever reason, can resist her unrelenting drive to overcome anything in her path. Persuasion and intimidation are merely two of the tools she has at her disposal, and while she wishes to avoid violence, she does not shy from it when the occasion arises.
