The Daimyo of the Kitsu family is not a public figure. Indeed, he is known more for his stutter and dislike of crowds than for his skill at leading the family. He is a prodigy with the kami, however, having risen to be a master sodan-senzo at the age of 17. He converses with the Blessed Ancestors as easily as other shugenja speak with the kami, and only Isawa Tomo can match his attunement with the Water kami.
Update: Legacy of the Forge
Having performed the ritual to guide Akodo Arasou’s soul to Yomi, Kitsu Ai is permitted to take Kitsu Toju as an ally. He has an influence of 4 and a devotion of 4 for her and her alone.
