Otomo Sorai is perhaps the warmest and friendliest Otomo daimyo in the history of the Empire. He spent much of his younger days working as the Imperial Nakodo, in charge of approving all marriages in the Empire, and still takes a strong interest in arranging matches between the clans.
Sorai is available as an ally to Imperial, Scorpion, Crane, Lion, and Phoenix characters. He has influence of 4 and a devotion limited to 1, except for Scorpion who may go to 2.
Unmarried characters who take Sorai as an ally may take the Blissful Betrothal advantage for 2 less points.
