The Shadow Above
Famous Tsuruchi Bounty Hunter, father of Vicious
Father of Tsuruchi Vicious
A well known bounty hunter for the Mantis clan. While off on a pursuit to catch a man by the name of Asahina Shun his journey took him into the gaijin territory of Merenae. The hunt was a long and arduous one. He fell in love with a very strong-willed woman, Juliana Amsel. After courting for over 2 years, they were married in Merenae and would later renew their vowes in Rokugan to make it legal there as well. After many near misses and further crimes, Hitomaro caught up with Shun 5 years after arriving across the sea. He had cornered his pray and subdued him but not before part of his plan for a mass killing had started. 100’s of people perished but 10s of 100s more were spared. When he returned to Rokugan, he did so with his prey and his new family.
