Legend of the 5 Rings Smoking Waters
an ancient artisan, nearly blind
Isawa Jigen is an extremely old man, once the preeminent sculptor of the Isawa clan and a revered teacher, now just a withered husk of his former skill. jigen’s hands are twisted by arthritis, no longer able to handle the tools of his craft, and his eyes clouded by cataracts, no longer able to see the beauty of the world, but he seems content to dwell in his memories. His recollections are aided by the many finely-crafted statuettes and other items he still holds, running his hands over their delicate surfaces as he relives their creation.
