Legend of the 5 Rings Smoking Waters
sensei of the Asako Loremaster school
Asako Kaiten is extremely old, but still possesses the flawless memory that made him famous as a boy. He oversees the training of young courtiers, as well as the philosophical education that all Phoenix bushi and shugenja receive. Since the partial destruction of Kyuden Asako, in which large portions of the library were burned, Kaiten has spent many hours dictating the contents of the scrolls and books he had read, doing what he can to restore the knowledge that was lost in the Clan War.
