Gonna be honest, I'm surprised no one is giving the Kitsune Impersonator a try, especially considering where we are geographically.

Unless I'm wrong and someone actually is a filthy kitsune in disguise!

If Imperials aren't being allowed as applicants, I'm pretty certain Spirits aren't on the Favored List. :P

Hmm, this game is very interesting, but due to other time constraints I'm going to bow out for now. I hope you all have fun!

"Steel test's a bushi's courage. Words test a samurai's honesty."
-Kitsuki Takeshi, Lieutenant Magistrate of the Dragon


Mannerisms: It is only among the Dragon that it would be acceptable for a samurai to strike such an unbecoming figure as Takeshi. That is perhaps outside of the Crab, and Takeshi's mild nature could never be mistaken for that of a Crab. The most overt thing about Takeshi is that he is missing his right eye. However, the more subtle features of his appearance, the worn clothes and a disheveled demeanor, somehow serve to make a greater impression. Takeshi plays the part well, often seeming to forget questions and regularly fumbling through his pockets. He is such a courteous and humble fellow that it borders on flattery.

Yet many samurai have discovered that there is more to the man than his somewhat buffoonish appearance might suggest. His astounding attention to detail and incredible tenacity belie his seemingly bumbling demeanor, so much so that some begin to suspect that it is all an act. Certainly, Takeshi always seems to find what it is that he is looking at just the right moment to catch his adversaries unaware.

History: Takeshi was never destined to be the greatest Dragon, but like all Dragon he understood his own particular path to greatness did not require him to measure himself against the success of others. His path took it's first turn at age three when he lost his eye to a mysterious illness. Some claimed that it was a blight brought on by an oni's curse, but in actuality the curse was cancer and in the end this twist was revealed to be more of a blessing than a curse. As he strove to overcome this handicap, Takeshi acquired a tenaciousness that belied his unassuming nature.

Thus, while Takeshi was perhaps not the brightest investigator amongst the Kitsuki, he was the most thorough. In fact, perhaps he was too thorough. His early cases brought him a degree of celebrity as he uncovered a web of intrigue among the ranks of the samurai the was as scintillating as it was shocking. The physical evidence that he produced often seemed mundane or even trivial, yet time and again it came to be the loose thread that unraveled a case. Even early on, it was obvious that in his hunt for the truth Takeshi was willing to bend the tennett of honesty.

Unfortunately, his career came to a sudden end due to a rivalry with a noted Dragon bushi that developed over the course of his last investigation into the brutal murder of a hinin. The samurai staunchly defended his character, but Takeshi was able to produce physical evidence linking the bushi to the crime. In the awkward aftermath of the case, it was determined that no crime had been committed, but the bushi's reputation suffered greatly. Takeshi's own reputation fared little better among the Dragon samurai, and he became known as a samurai slayer. During his time as a ronin, Takeshi took to simple living, and regulated his investigative techniques to serving as a yoriki to other investigators.

Well, my application is nearly complete. I got everything done except for questions 18 and 19 regarding the name. If it's not too big of a deal Zazaq, I'll try and get those answers in come morning, but right now I've got to get some sleep. Crossing my fingers that I'll get chosen

EDIT: Application is all finished up.

Still looking forward to this greatly! Thanks again to Zazaq for stepping up to run it in response to those of us who were pleading for a GM.

Alright everyone results are in

MaximumUnicorns, as our former unicorn

Well, pretty crushed that I wasn't chosen for this one. Worked hard on my application. I bought the book just for this game, as I was in on the recruitment effort to get it going.

Good luck, all.
