The Court of the Summer Snow
A young scorpion bushi, eager to prove himself.
Bayushi Soujiro is yojimbo to Bayushi Akiren, and is traveling with him to the court of Summer Snow.
Soujiro is young, barely past his gempukku, and is eager to prove himself and impress his Crane hosts. His formal mask is a grinning Oni’s mouth, finely ornamented, which would be more impressive if it wasn’t a slightly too big for him for his small frame. Outside of formal situation he just goes with a piece of red cloth, like his master.
